The Allard Pierson Museum and the Special Collections officially joined forces in January 2019 under the name the Allard Pierson. This new name is part of a wider strategy to generate greater support and engagement, both within the UvA and externally. As a result, the Allard Pierson on Oude Turfmarkt is currently being refurbished and expanded to ensure that the museum building is perfectly aligned with the strategy for the Allard Pierson Museum and Special Collections. The refurbishment started in the first quarter of 2019 and is due to be completed by the end of March 2020.
