In June 2005 the museum opened an extensive expansion that doubled the public space of the museum by adding three new galleries, the Sky City Cafe, an education center, outdoor gardens, and event space.
The new galleries include two galleries dedicated to the museum extensive contemporary art collection. The collection includes works by T.C. Cannon, Kay Walkingstick, Andy Warhol and many more. The other gallery added in the expansion is the Gund Gallery of Western Art. This gallery is dedicated to the 57-piece collection of traditional Western art donated to the museum by the George Gund Family.
The Sky City Cafe offers a Southwestern fare with most entrees under $10. There is free admission to the cafe and free parking.
