On the ground floor, the rooms give an overview of arts and crafts from the Romanesque period to the Renaissance. It includes religious statuary and gold pieces, tapestries, furniture and models of medieval towns. The collections on the first floor include musical instruments, porcelain and silverwork. There is an exhibition of folk art and Nativity cribs in the basement.
