The 1st floor contains some of the most iconic pieces of art within the museum walls. This floor houses the Egyptian Antiquities, Greek, Etruscan, and Roman Antiquities, Decorative Arts, Prints and Drawings, as well as Paintings Collections.

TIP! Make sure to plan the routes ahead of time. Given that there are iconic pieces of art within each floor this shouldn’t be a reason to miss other pieces that are located in the vicinity.
