The museum is dedicated to everyday life in the past and the present. The permanent collection, located on floors 2, 3 and 4, will immerse you in the feeling of being in another era.
These two floors are devoted to temporary exhibitions of varying sizes. These aim to present thematic readings of the collections, reflecting on the evolution of social values and the history of world-views. They also aim to devote special attention to contemporary design, situating Spanish production from the 20th and 21st centuries in an international context.

Particularly notable is a Neapolitan nativity scene from the late 18th century.
