The house museum contains an artistic and literary legacy in line with the poet's era, and which the visitor can use as a guide for an interesting journey through the Spanish Golden Age. Although not every object in the house pertains to it or to other periods in the writer's life, it should be noted that each work of art, each book, and each piece of furniture has been carefully chosen to create a fitting collection for the objectives of the house: to pay tribute not only to Lope, but to the entire, rich Golden Age.

The existing heritage in the Lope de Vega house museum has numerous different sources:

  • Many works and objects are on loan from the Madres Trinitarias, religious women who, over a long period of time, saved items belonging to Lope de Vega.
  • The museum's 17th century collection of books is on loan from the National Library. Currently, there are none of the poet's manuscripts.
  • The individual donations are thanks to: Viscount of Eza, José Manuel Delgado González, Luis Fernández Santos, Rafael Moreno, Mr. and Mrs. Byne, Apolinar Sánchez, Duke of Baena, A. Coghen, Ellen Claire González Parkes, Sebastián Sempere Pasquet, Serafín Álvarez Quintero, Carlos Creus, Joaquín Álvarez Quintero and Cecilio Rodríguez.
  • The works on deposit from other museums and institutions pertain to: the Santa Cruz Museum (Toledo), the Prado Museum, the Institute Valencia de Don Juan (Madrid) and the National Archeology Museum.
