The two maps illustrate a comparison between what a museum’s south wing was like in 2008 and what it was like after development in 2012.
From the west to the east, there are a number of changes. The special collective gallery on the west end stayed unchanged. Replacing the original entrance, an entrance hall was built straight to the stairs. With a restaurant as an addition to the north side, the middle section was expanded. While the interactive gallery and the shop were the same as they were before, the gallery was developed into a dual-functional space with a cloak room. The east end was also expanded. Where the stairs were in 2008, there was an elevator instead in 2012. The space shared by a reading room and a cloak room was divided into two separate rooms—the reading room and a section designated for children replacing the cloak room. Next to the reading room was a self-service cafe, with an exhibition room still next to it.
Overall, the whole section of the museum changed markedly into a more versatile area.
