The museum building, opened in 2005, already entices visitors from afar. Especially at night, when the transparent outer shell of glass is brilliantly illuminated and the cube of stone in the building’s core grows visible from the outside. Although the outer appearance of the building makes visitors anticipate a clear-cut architectural structure, upon entering they are surprised when confronted by two former traffic tunnels. These provide the greatest part by far of the 5,000 square-meter exhibition space. It is the successful interplay of veiling and unveiling that makes for the specific character of the museum which could welcome its millionth visitor in November 2010.
