After the expropriation of the XVII century, it has been turned into a museum, gathering highly valuable works of art.

To name just a few classical painters whose works of art are on display in the museum: Diego Velázquez, Zurbarán, Herrera el Viejo, Gerard David, Caraciolo, Murillo, etc.
It is worth mentioning also that, being the year of Murillo, the museum offers a brand new exhibition of works of the Sevillian painter, and works on permanent display as well, such as La Virgen del Pañuelo or La Concepción Grande.
This museum is located in the group of buildings of the 1929 EXPO, since it has been moved here due to the increase of its collections, after finding place in the Real Alcázar and in the Convento de la Merced in the meantime.
