This museum has archaeological collections from Greece, Egypt, the Near East, Iran, China, the Islamic world, and Pre-Columbian art. There is a very good selection of European decorative art that ranges from Romanesque art to Art Deco. There are tapestries, retables, glass, and liturgical art.

The most unusual piece in the museum was this Chinese bed with built in armoires. It looks like a little playhouse.
