NEW YORK (AP) — The Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum has received $5 million from New York City toward the renovation of its Upper East Side mansion and grounds.
The money will go toward the restoration of woodwork, flooring, stone and windows at the museum's Andrew Carnegie mansion. The Arthur Ross Terrace and garden also will be upgraded.
The funds come from the city's Department of Cultural Affairs. The museum previously got $14.3 million from the city.
The renovation will result in 60 percent more gallery space when the museum reopens in 2014.
The museum has completed renovation of two townhouses that are used for offices and its National Design Library.
Cooper-Hewitt is part of the Smithsonian Institution.
