They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Viewing this slideshow of photographs from around the building, therefore, will spare you from reading approximately 17,000 words!
Are there areas of the museum you want to see more of as we get ready to reopen? Let us know by leaving a comment and we'll try to send our roving photographers out to capture the images you want to see most.
Dana Allen-Greil is the museum's new media project manager.
