Palácio Angeja-Palmela owes its present design to the third Marquis of Angeja, who wanted to install his natural history collections here, complemented by a botanical garden, in the mid-18th century. Acquired by the Palmela family in the second quarter of the 19th century, it remained a secondary residence and was the subject of campaigns to refurbish the interiors, most notably the one carried out by Pereira Cão, Rambotti and Cinatti, who intervened in the wall decoration of the main floor. In 1975, the State acquired and converted the complex, known as Quinta do Monteiro-Mor, to house the current museum.
