Housed inside the ancestral home of Cal Perelló, within Tàrrega's historic centre, the museum encourages visitors to immerse themselves in the quotidian setting of a wealthy landowning family living in 18th or 19th century Tàrrega. The exhibit combines archaeological artefacts with a significant furniture collection and a room devoted to Tàrrega-born artist Antoni Alsina Amils, illustrating the Urgell region's history between the Iberian Period and 19th century.

The cornerstone of the archaeological exhibit is the Iberian world. The Urgell and surrounding area's rich knowledge of the Iberian civilisation comes courtesy of archaeological excavations performed at Molí d'Espígol in Tornabous and Pla de les Tenalles in La Móra.

The Museum is also part of the Museum Network  Terres de Lleida i Aran .
