History of Majorca

The museum is located in a 16th-century mansion popularly known as "Casa de la Gran Cristiana". In 2015 it opened its Fine Arts and Decorative Arts section, situated in the Casal d'Aiamans.

This museum contains important archaeological remains, ranging from Talayotic figures to Moorish ceramics, and other items such as Gothic panels. Especially interesting is the collection of weapons, ornaments and spiritual symbols relating to the island's first settlers. There are also paintings, Renaissance and Baroque ceramics, and a section with modernistic furniture.
