Visiting an exhibition in person is a much richer experience than visiting online. Why not leave a comment to share your thoughts and impressions with others?

I am very excited for the expansion project, especially the opening up of the steps and the views into the museum that will come with that project. I look forward to watching the progress over the next several years and hope that The Museum becomes more of an international landmark than it already is.

During the warm months, I look forward to the way the fountain just outside the gallery seems to animate and join the separate panes of Duchamp's Large Glass. It's unfortunate that this aspect of Duchamp's piece will be sacrificed by the replacement of that fountain with a skylight. Will the spaces illuminated by so much new natural light be able to safely contain works of art on a regular basis? Will the new windowed room behind the large east pediment be open to the public or a VIP space? The new auditorium doesn't seem to accomplish much more than the current one apart from making way for the new staircase to the lower level. I wonder if there's need for so many separate public spaces, both inside and outside (just wary of dead zones without artworks).

Beautiful museum... enjoyed the different types of art, and that all corners of the world were represented.

I believe that Ghery's design is fundamentally good. The only design change that I would make is to not change the steps. They are such and iconic part of the museum.

This museum is amazing, though there are somethings that can not be understand.

Dear Mr. Gehry, Your concept is beautiful except for the handicap ramps still residing at the back of the building. This museum is better than many museums in providing ramps and parking for me in a wheelchair. I would love to experience the front entrance in all its beauty but cannot enter there. It looks like there is a space to the side of the front stairs for ramps that would facilitate wheelchairs, baby carriages or anyone with a cane or limited walking. To integrate handicap entrances to the architecture is essential to calling the architecture inclusive!I so hope you can remedy this current flaw in the design.

THE FRONT STEPS ARE BEAUTIFUL AND ICONIC. THE NEW GALLERIES WILL BE FABULOUS WITHOUT A NEED TO CUT INTO THE STEPS. ALSO THE DESIGN MAY ENCOURAGE HOMELESS TO SET UP CAMP.

The interior spaces will be exciting and interesting, adding much needed space and light. Im not a fan of the exterior stair move....and regarding the new east fire stairs....make them as wide as the facades of the wings they touch, clad them in the Minnesota dolomite and include the frieze from Abele's original drawing. Great job on connecting the spaces and making it easier to get around and enjoy this place in a timely fashion.Hows that for a compliment sandwich!

AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL! I WOULD VOTE AGAINST SPLITTING THE MAIN STAIRCASE ON THE GROUNDS THAT THE PUBLIC USE/LIGHT/ "ADVERTISEMENT" ADVANTAGES OF THE PROPOSED CHANGE ARE OUTWEIGHED BY THE PRESERVATION OF THE CLASSICAL PROPORTIONALITY OF THE FRONT OF THE BUILDING THROUGH THE RETENTION OF THE "ICONIC" STEPS.

I am enthusiastic about the design changes suggested by Mr. Gehry and his colleagues. I support the "window in the steps" idea.

This was an amazing experience. We both loved the exhibits. Found the lay out a bit confusing but very immersive. Beautiful place!

Will the extension of Fairmount Park eastward to the west facade receive adequate attention from park staff already overstretched? Is a longer more gradual climb from boathouse row better than a short steep climb? Remember the problems the Barnes has had with their interior atrium garden? Finally, will the open loft spaces receive the same fate as the Kimmel's roof garden ie. ultimate privatization and further restricted access except for people of means?Above all, "do no harm".
