Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco to reopen

The Palace of Fine Arts, unveiled as the crown jewel of San Francisco during the Panama Pacific Exposition of 1915, is scheduled to reopen before the end of May. The restoration of the Palace is nearly complete.

The first phase of the restoration focused on the lagoon, which is the closest freshwater basin to San Francisco Bay that is fed by by natural springs.

The second phase involved the seismic upgrade of the rotunda and columns.

Fundraising to complete the western landscaping of the Palace of Fine Arts continues.
