The museum was inaugurated in 1990 by Rafael Taboada Vazquez - the Abbot of the Collegiate Church of Santa Maria. The design of the museum was undertaken by Manuel Gallego Jorreto and is some 32 sqm (8m x 4m).

The museum holds a collection of silver and gold which has been treasured by the Abbey; the majority of the items of the collection come from the period between 1750 and 1825. This was when the abbey was at it's strongest financial position.
