Temporary exhibitions

A museum of Spanish sculpture

It is one of the most original museums in the world thanks to the dramatically intense works of art, the beauty of the building and the modernity of the presentation.

Devotional sculpture by great Spanish Renaissance and Baroque artists, such as Juan de Juni, Alonso Berruguete and Gregorio Fernández is one of the most relevant hallmarks of Spanish history and the highlight of the collections in this museum. This type of sculpture launched its creativity with unprecedented imagination in the 16th and 17th centuries. The blend of art, religion and power offers visitors a range of interpretations and forms of knowledge and enjoyment. Furthermore, since December 2011 the museum houses the collections from the former National Museum of Artistic Reproductions.

The museum's main site is the College of San Gregorio, a magnificent 15th-century building which was originally used as a training centre for theologians, mystics and inquisitors. The museum also comprises the neighbouring buildings of the Villena Palace and the Casa del Sol.
