The monumental 13-panel tapestry set representing the "History of Constantine the Great" is a tour de force of the Baroque style and one of the Museum's most important masterpieces. It consists of seven weavings presented to Cardinal Francesco Barberini by Louis XIII in 1625, along with six panels woven in the Barberini tapestry manufactory in Rome between 1630 and 1642.

A Medieval cloister was usually a space at the heart of a monastery where a variety of highly regulated events in the lives of members of the religious order took place. The Museum’s cloister, based on the design at Saint-Genis-des-Fontaines in southwestern France, and the rare Romanesque fountain at its center, afford visitors a space for quiet thought.
