I'm still slightly scratching my head about Tate Modern's new £260m extension and revamp. It only opened in 2000, and it was pretty big then. But look what treats await us, says the BBC:

New acquisitions to be shown for the first time in 2016 include an installation of human hair and car bumpers by Sheela Gowda and an immersive multi-screen film by Cannes prize-winner Apichatpong Weerasethakul. 

Meanwhile, over at poor old Tate Britain, they only have enough space to show (according to the online collection database today) just 5 out of 34 oil paintings by Joshua Reynolds.
