Special Notice

>From the autumn of 1994 through 1995, and well into 1996, there
will be major building operations in the Museum. One immediate
consequence will be that substantial parts of the Egyptian, Greek
and Roman galleries, as well as reserve collections, will be
inacessible even to the staff. Great improvements are anticipated
as a result of the structural alterations; in the meantime,
however, there will inevitably be a good deal of disruption. We
hope that scholars everywhere will understand.
