The world-renowned museum Mona, will re-open on Boxing Day.
The Museum of Old and New Art announced on Friday morning that it would open for four days a weeks from Fridays to Mondays.
The galleries have undergone a major revamp, displaying owner and founder David Walsh's extensive personal collection of ancient, modern and contemporary art.
The rehang includes about 350 new and old collection highlights.
'We are, of course, aware that we are reopening just before our 10th anniversary, so we've dug out some old stuff to commemorate our opening," Mr Walsh said.
"We are also looking to the future. In this time of crisis, community is more important than ever, and so we are looking inwards while we look outwards."

Outside, a giant sculpture by American artist Tom Otterness will double as a children's playground.
Titled Gals Rule, the sculpture features two figures with slides for limbs. It is over 7 metres high and made from bronze.
A brand new venue, Dubsy's, will serve burgers nearby on the lawns, which will also play host to live music every operating day selected by Mona music curator Brian Ritchie and his team.
Inside the museum, Tasmanian musician Ben Salter will be in residence each day writing songs, and occasionally performing them, in a gallery designed to feel like an art-filled lounge room.
Fighting Back against family violence:
Mr Walsh said the museum was looking forward to having everyone whether it be a Mona regular or a first-timer.
"That's because we're looking forward to having anyone. So much so that we'll be charging locals if they don't come," he said.
All visitors must have a pre-booked ticket. Although entry remains free for locals, all Tasmanians will be required to pay a deposit, which can be refunded following a visit.
Visitors will also be required to download Mona's app (The O), which will become their digital guide to the museum and grounds-and bring headphones to access additional audio content.
