In line with construction plans, all public-facing museum activity will move to the old building, which will remain open to the public throughout most of the course of the extension, offering exhibitions and their accompanying activities. The collection will be presented through the dynamic BBKateak format consisting of interesting encounters between two artists in each gallery. New installations will be regularly displayed with the dual aim of exploring the riches of the museum collection and sparking stimulations observations among visitors. There will also be other events, such as the Guest Work programme, restorations and other presentations, together with our multi-channel programme (in-person and online) of educational and outreach activities.

Access to the museum will be via the door of the old building on Museo Plaza and admission will be free.
