The museum has a major collection of pieces from different artistic periods.
The old pavilion of the 1908 Universal Expo is the setting for this museum, which is divided into two large sections: Archaeology and Fine Art. In the first you can find objects that go from prehistory through to the Moorish period. Worthy of special mention are various bronze plaques with Iberian and Latin inscriptions, a head of Augustus from Tarazona, and archaeological remains from Aljafería Palace. In the Fine Art section, there are works from the 12th century to the contemporary period, with an especially outstanding ensemble of Gothic painting, and numerous canvasses by Francisco de Goya. The museum has two additional sections, located in Primo de Rivera Park: Albarracín House, which is home to the Ceramics section, and Ansotana House, dedicated to Ethnology.
