En 1984 se acomete otra importante reestructuración siguiendo las recomendaciones de Juan Temboury, por Enrique Atencia Molina. La actual ampliación, obra de los arquitectos Richard Gluckman, Rafael Martín Delgado e Isabel Cámara, ha sido una obra que se ha prolongado durante años. La aparición de distintos hallazgos arqueológicos ha producido importantes cambios en el cuidado desarrollo del espacio.
