Additions designed by Mies Van der Rohe: Cullinan Hall (1958) and the Brown Pavilion (1974) - the original neo-classical building was designed in phases by architect William Ward Watkin. The original Caroline Wiess Law building was constructed in 1924 and the east and west wing were added in 1926. The Robert Lee Blaffer Memorial Wing was designed by Kenneth Franzheim and opened to the public in 1953. The new construction included significant structural improvements to several existing galleries—most notably, air conditioning. Two subsequent additions, Cullinan Hall and the Brown Pavilion, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe were built in 1958 and 1974 respectively. opening hours: Tuesday–Wednesday 10 am – 5 pm Thursday 10 am – 9 pm Friday–Saturday 10 am – 7 pm Sunday 12:15 – 7 pm admission cost: $7.00 museum website: www.mfah.org
