The will of creating an art museum in A Coruña rose at the end of 19th century. However, the museum was not established until 1922 and opened for the general public until 1947. After several temporary emplacements, in 1995 was opened the present new building - designed by the Galician architect Manuel Gallego Jorreto. Located in the old plot of the Capuchin Sisters Convent, the new building is born from the old construction made by Fernando Casas y Novoa in 18th century.

This sacred art museum, one of the most important in Galicia, occupies some of the chambers of the Saint Clare convent in Monforte de Lemos. The convent was founded in 1622 by Catarina de la Cerda y Sandoval, wife to Pedro Fernández de Castro, VII Count of Lemos. Catarina was ordained in this convent once she was widowed; This patronage is of vital importance, given that the collection houses part of the great artistic legacy from both of these nobles. The legacy includes magnificent paintings, sculptures, ivories, textiles and sumptuary objects (especially reliquaries). All these pieces were gathered by the Counts of Lemos during their viceroyalty in Naples from 1610 to 1616.
