Located in San Domingo de Bonaval convent, which dates back to the
17th-18th century, in its rooms, it exhibits a very extensive collection of
items of popular Galician culture: Fishing, agriculture, stockbreeding,
trades, homes, popular costumes, musical instruments or Prehistory.
Another of its attractions is the spectacular triple helicoid stairway, a
display of structural audacity and work of Domingo de Andrade, which
links the cloister to the building’s different floors. Besides the museum,
you can visit the church of the convent, which is occasionally used as a
unique backdrop for certain temporary exhibitions. This church contains
the Panteón de Galegos Ilustres, in which very famous personalities
from Galician culture are buried, such as Rosalía de Castro, Alfredo
Brañas, Castelao, Francisco Asorey and Ramón Cabanillas.
