In addition to the magnificent architecture of the building is the collection of antiques and fine art, featuring paintings, seventeenth-century furniture, beautiful hanging brass lamps, oriental rugs, and an Egyptian rug over 2,400 years old that was originally taken from one of the pyramids in Egypt.
