Since 2010, the museum has gone through a major expansion and now is home to a whole host of featured galleries. The Arts of the Pacific Gallery sheds light on work from the islands in and around Micronesia, Melanesia, Polynesia, and Indonesia. In Gems and Jewelry from the Ancient Mediterranean, you'll encounter stunning necklaces, pins, and bracelets made of precious metals as well as a gold earring from the 4th century B.C., which highlights the Greek goddess Nike driving a chariot. Don't miss Impressionism and Post-Impressionism in France where the groundbreaking works of van Gogh, Renoir, Monet, and Cézanne are on display. And in Theater and Performance:
Wine, Poets, and Performers in Ancient Greece, you will get an up-close-and-personal look at such artifacts as masks, musical instruments, and vases that depict scenes from a variety of plays.
