The inside of the drop-down contents information about every collection of the Museum: Ancient Painting, Modern Painting and Sculpture, Nigra Sum (art related to the image of the Virgin of Montserrat), Archaeology of the Ancient World, Phos Hilaron (Eastern icons) and religious precious metal work. In addition, there’s a map of the different areas of the museum where the major works from the collection are located, with its images: Penitent Saint Jerome by Caravaggio, Old fisherman by Picasso, Falaise et Porte d’Aval par gros temps by Monet, Cafe Montmartre by Rusiñol Madeleine by Casas, Poor waiting for soop by Nonell, Reflections by Mir, Neocubist Academy by Dali and The mountain of Oisin by Scully.
