Turn immediately to the left past the ticket booth in the 82nd street entrance and one enters the Greek and Roman collection of antiquities. The arched and skylit hallway (150-153) is flanked by 8 smaller galleries (152 to 159) filled with substantial works covering thousands of years of period ceramics, jewelry, sculpture, and even architectural remnants. To the right galleries have windows and natural lighting for mostly early Greek ceramic and bronze art, while to the left are spot lighted display cases of mostly small stone cut artifacts from Minoan and other pre-Greek Mediterranean antiquity.

Address: 1000 Fifth Avenue at 82nd Street
Directions: Take 4, 5, or 6 train to 86th Street and walk three blocks west to Fifth Avenue
