Museo provincial de Lugo

History of the Provincial Museum of Lugo

Founded by the Lugo Provincial Council in 1932, the Lugo Provincial Museum was originally located in the Pazo de San Marcos. It was not until 1957 when it was decided to change its location, moving to the old convent of San Francisco. Thanks to the renovations carried out in the convent, although maintaining the cloister, kitchen and refectory from the 15th and 18th centuries respectively, the Provincial Museum of Lugo housed the ethnographic material.

The building has several floors, being able to find different pieces in each of them. On the first floor is the collection of mosaics from the 3rd century. These mosaics were found in a plot of land on Armañá street in Lugo. This plant also belongs to the old kitchen of the convent and in which various ethnographic collections can be found.

If we go to the upper part of the cloister we can take a look at different pieces and collections of ceramics, glass, mimismatics and medals. Here is the Prehistory and Archeology room, with chronological samples from the Paleolithic to the end of the Romanization period. One of the most interesting rooms in the Museum.

Finally and on the second floor is the collection of Galician art. Sculpture and painting from the 19th and 20th centuries have a special role in rooms dedicated to artists such as Julia Mingullón or Antonio Fernández. Sargadelos also has its space on the second floor with a collection of ceramics that covers the different stages of the Royal Factory.
