San Francisco’s Palace of Fine Arts Reopens

San Francisco’s newly restored Palace of Fine Arts reopens this morning after a $20 million restoration project. Crews spent six years repairing the dome, giving the rotunda a seismic upgrade, and restoring the pond and the landscaping. The Palace was built for the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition, but wasn’t intended to last more than a year.

This aired on KQED News on 1/14/11.
