The current museum was established in 1990 with the union of the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, established in 1945, and the Museum of Catalan Art, opened in 1934. The parts from these museums were added a new section of coins, engravings and other funds of the General Library of Art History. Later, in 1996, added a new department dedicated to photography.

In addition to temporary exhibitions and touring, the museum also performs other functions such as the study, conservation and restoration of works of art.
