The Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, has a lot of impressive stuff. Not only paintings, but weapons, suits of armor, wood carvings, as well ancient artifacts, etc. Its really worth seeing, and it is free of charge I believe.
The West is essentially the sole keepers of the history of the ancient world. I always shake my head every time they give back an ancient artifact to a country who's a thread away from sinking back into radicalism.

You're right, that does make sense. I really can't fathom how can smb treat his own history like that, TBH. Those Muslims are a really weird folk, I guess (they probably think the same about us though).

In all fairness though, early Christians destroyed or converted ancient pagan temples, in the name of God. They also defaced a lot of statues as well. Moreover, they did it in the name of a foreign religion, that was imposed to supplant the indigenous polytheistic European ones.
Also there's incidence of Christian explorers destroying ancient Greek and Roman artifacts for their sexual depictions.
