The museum is located in an old Gothic, 14th-century cloister also known as Sala Capitular. The building was recently renovated, respecting the chapels, arches and arcades of the cloister and, most importantly, the Gothic Annunciation facade.  During the works, the remains of an old Arab mosque were found and then conditioned for people to visit.
The museum has a large collection of pieces from different periods, authors and styles, such as the 14th century Gothic altarpiece by Bernabé de Módena, with the images of Virgen de la Leche and Santa Lucía. There are also paintings by Fernando de Llanos, disciple of Leonardo da Vinci and 17th century metal works by Antonio Pérez de Montalto, such as Custodia del Corpus, the jewelry box of Our Lady of Fuensanta, a collection of chalices, etc.
El Sarcófago de las Musas, Roman sculpture from the 3rd century, the image of San Jerónimo from the 18th century and various pieces by Francisco Salzillo, such as the medallion of Virgen de la Leche, are some of the pieces of the priceless art collection exhibited at the Cathedral Museum...not to mention the Moorish bell from the 14th century, one of the oldest in Spain.
