The Entrance

This photo was taken, from the steps leading down from the main door of the museum to Chambers Street, on April 27, 2008, the day that the museum closed its doors to the public to undergo three years of refurbishment.

Here are a couple of gentlemen dressed in period costume to mark the occasion.
