Ethnological Museum

Osuna’s Ethnological Museum is located in the Palacio de los Hermanos Arjona y Cubas, an 18th-century building that housed the Local Agrarian Chamber for much of the last century.

The publicly-owned museum houses paintings and ethnographical objects that reflect life in the old ducal villa. It tries to give insight into the rural reality that has historically existed in the old Urso.

The museum is housed in the 18th-century mansion of the Arjona family. It has been renovated to showcase the Osuna’s past and its future outlook. This museum is structured around eight thematic spaces, designed with an artistic, anthropological, ethnological and social perspective.

The exhibitions at Osuna’s Museum take place in its four courtyards. The central courtyard has Doric columns with arcades and four corridors. An 18th-century limestone fountain sits in the centre. Two rooms are devoted to the famous painter from Osuna, Rodríguez Jaldón, whose Costumbrist paintings focused on Andalusian topics. The other room is dedicated to the local physician and painter Rodolfo Álvarez Santaló. There are also collections from the Archivo Municipal Nobleza y Poder, the Ruiz family’s former photography studio, objects from the old university, the Ledesma printing house, the "El Bombo" millinery and the Ice and Fire Room, the first space dedicated to the international "Game of Thrones” series. Part of the fifth season of this famous series was shot in Osuna in 2014.
