These include the Olot school of landscape painting, featuring artists such as Joaquim Vayreda, Marià Vayreda and Josep Berga i Boix, Modernisme with artists such as Miquel Blay, and the notable painting "La càrrega" (The charge) by Ramon Casas, and the Noucentisme movement, with artists such as Josep Clarà and Francesc Vayreda.

The permanent exhibition rooms are complemented with regularly scheduled temporary exhibitions, which cover different themes related to the region.
