See works by Zurbarán, Velázquez, and, of course, Goya. Explore the rare, historical collections of weapons from the 15th to the 20th centuries, coins from as far back as the 12th century, and French sculpture. Admire the 50 pieces of Spanish sculpture from the 15th to the 20th centuries, as well as drawings and etchings, including nearly 600 works from old masters and Goya's four engraved series.
