This museum space suggests a journey through the history of the city of Madrid from prehistoric times until the establishment of the Court, through various rooms such as San Isidro, the Renaissance courtyard, the Archaeobotanical Garden or the Storehouse.
The permanent exhibition of the Museum displays, through a total of 153 pieces, the origins and development of the city of Madrid. The opening of the Museum has allowed to recover the tradition of visiting the Pozo del Milagro (well of the miracle) located next to the courtyard, where, according to tradition, San Isidro saved his son from drowning when the waters rose to the curb. Reconstruction has been made to enhance this curb, to the original feature, making it the focal point of the light built around the tower. It has also made it possible to present artistic displays and traditions related to the Saint, in a place that, forming a group with the San Isidro Chapel in the Church of San Andrés and the nearby Chapel of the Bishop, was the historical focus of his cult.
