Ancient Art


Ancient art spans several galleries on the Museum’s first floor, including the awe-inspiring Renaissance Court. Covering millennia of early creative expression, these galleries highlight artworks from ancient Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, Rome, and more. The Hunt mosaic, a 500-square-foot floor from the ancient city of Antioch, makes a dramatic impression at the Salisbury Street entrance, an invitation to explore thousands of years of our collective history of art.
