The museum collection has items from all the different periods of the history of art, from prehistoric times through to the 20th century, arranged around the Cathedral cloister. The room dedicated to Romanesque art is especially outstanding, with a collection of 60 sculptures from the 12th and 13th centuries; Castilian and Flemish triptychs, ivory objects, religious items and unique codices such as a Mozarab Antiphonary, a 10th-century edition of the Bible and the Libro de las Estampas (Testament of the León monarchs).
