The lower floor exhibits ancient and medieval sculpture up until the fourteenth century. Highlights include the Romanesque relief Jesus Appearing to the Disciples on the Sea, attributed to the Master of Cabestany and originally from the Benedictine monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes.

The first floor features sculpture from the fifteenth to the nineteenth century. Emphasis is on Castilian Renaissance and Baroque sculpture, with examples from the majority of Spanish sculptural schools.

On the underground level there is the majority of stone sculpture from the museum holdings.

The sculpture shares the space with other artistic collections, which while not as abundant are still noteworthy. They feature goldsmithing and silversmithing, furniture, textiles and painting, and work from medieval panels.

The iconographic wealth of the collection and the variety of materials and typographies seen are inherent and complementary to the historical vision offered as well. Here both well-known and anonymous artistic creators enlighten visits to this unique collection, introducing visitors to the world of Spanish sculpture.
