The comprehensive restoration executed in the Archaeological Museum, located at the historic Bishop’s Palace, forced the temporary closure of the building and the opening of this temporary exhibition room next to St Francis’ Cloister, in the upper part of the city. This space, which was former the chapel of the Franciscan order, houses a temporary exhibition offering a representative overview of the various funds of this museum, from the so-called “Galician warriors” to Renaissance sculpture.

In addition, the exhibition includes the regular activity “Piece of the Month“, which aims to deepen the historical, artistic and material knowledge of a specific piece belonging to the museum’s collections. Every second Wednesday of the month the chosen piece is presented, remaining exhibited accompanied by a detailed study of its particular history, its historical context and its formal characteristics and style the whole month.
