The Museum of Lleida is an institution serving the territory of Lleida and its inhabitants, set up by means of an agreement signed on 1 August 1997 as an institutional consortium comprising the Government of Catalonia, the Lleida Provincial Council and the Lleida Town Council, the County Council and the Bishopric of Lleida.
The museum holds the collections contributed by the Lleida Cathedral Chapter, and some specific loans from by the National Art Museum of Catalonia and the Archaeology Museum of Catalonia.
The new headquarters of the Museum of Lleida, built on the grounds of the former Llar de Sant Josep, is the work of the architect Joan Rodon and forms part of the old Casa de la Misericordia. It also uses the old church of the cloistered convent of the Discalced Carmelites.
The Museum of Lleida aims to become a benchmark of heritage in the territory of Lleida.
