A Bigger Splash: Museum Reopens

When I win this week’s $1.6 billion Mega Millions, I want a place like this. La Piscine—Museum of Art and Industry in Roubaix, north-eastern France, has just reopened its doors after a $11 million renovation and expansion. The museum has been closed for the past six months to complete the two-year upgrade, which aims to boost its international profile. Located in a converted 1930s Art Deco swimming pool and baths complex, La Piscine is home to decorative arts relating

to the town’s textile manufacturing heritage and an eclectic collection of 19th- and 20th-century French painting and sculpture.
