View of the rear of the long entrance pavilions

A shallow exterior porch extends along part of the length of the lobby. The edge of the circular one-story restaurant at the east end of the back is visible in the left and center photographs. See plan.

The western side

Here at the rear, the ground level of the museum is at the second story. A walled sculpture garden is entered from the second floor of the museum or by an exterior stairwell from below. See plan. I understand that additional outdoor sculptures will be moved to this site.
