The inside of the museum is wholly dedicated to the exhibition and conservation of more than 70 nativity scenes arranged across 7 rooms, which can be visited in approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes.
Outside, the visitor can enjoy an exhibition of oil mills and farming implements from the Andalusian countryside.
Turning round, the visitors can observe the figure of Saint Francis of Assisi, patron saint of nativity scene makers and a symbol of the beginning of the nativity art tradition. He it was who first set up a small replica of a nativity scene on Christmas Eve 1223, in Italy. This figure has been made by the Sevillian sculptor, José Ángel García.
In the central hall there is a Neapolitan crib made by the well-known Italian nativity scene artist, Claudio Mattei. There is also a spectacular representation of the Three Kings Cavalcade, with surprising figures measuring a metre and a half. These were made by the Jerez-based sculptor, Joaquín Pérez.
