Facts

  • The 20-foot grand staircase in the main atrium leads to the museum's eight galleries.
  • The portion of the structure that juts out over Salem Avenue was designed to accommodate an IMAX projector that was never purchased due to financial concerns.
  • The flooring in the main entry is comprised of travertine imported from Izmir, Turkey.
  • Its distinctive roofline took its inspiration from the surrounding ridgelines of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
  • Renamed on February 6, 2008 in honor of its largest benefactors, Nicholas F. and Eugenia L. Taubman.
  • The roof contains 35,000 square feet of stainless steel paneling.
  • A newly constructed replica of the former Tony's Place Restaurant facade off Market Street was built to serve as a mask for the museum's electrical generator and transformer.
