The Museum of Bellas Artes (Fine Arts) of Murcia is one of the most established institutions of our Region. Its origin is linked to the Comisión Provincial de Monumentos de Murcia (Provincial Commission of Monuments of Murcia) of 1844. Its preservation and conservation works of the patrimony of monuments, with the purpose of founding the Museo Provincial (Provincial Museum), will materialise in 1864. This year, the Museo Provincial de Pintura y Escultura (Painting and Sculpture) will be created and later on, the Section of Archaeology will be added.
The building, opened in 1910, is a work of the architect Pedro Cerdán, who uses an impeccable language to express the premises of the architectural eclecticism.
