The Museum of the Empordà is located in the square at the bottom of the Rambla

The Museum of the Empordà is an institution focused on researching, preserving and promoting local and regional cultural heritage, with an extensive program of exhibitions and activities. It offers the public a historical overview of its collections and a special space dedicated to contemporary art. The Museum offers educational services and publications, a library and a screening room.

The Museum's history dates back to 1885, when the first collections arrived from the Prado Museum, bringing together an interesting collection of artworks from the Catalan art scene (Sorolla, Casas, Nonell, Sacharoff, Tàpies, Torres Monsó, Zush and Pazos) and the Empordà in particular (Dalí, Santos, Reig, Vallès, Planells, Massanet, Gabriel and Mitjà).

The collection includes archaeological works, medieval art and Baroque paintings. Built in 1946, the building was opened in 1971. From 1998 onwards it has been managed by a consortium made up of Figueres Town Council, the Regional Council of Alt Empordà and the Gala-Salvador Dalí Foundation. As of 2015 the consortium has been dissolved, and the Museum will now be managed by the Department of Culture of Figueres Town Council.
