The museum focuses on the artistic heritage of the Romanian artists from the end of the 19th century and the 20th century offering a large view over the evolution of the visual arts. The art collection was established in 1960 as part of the Archeological Museum. In 1980 it became a distinct museum in the present location, a building dating from 1930 (work of the Italians Carol Zani and Vincenzo Puschiasis who integrated it well in the historical part of the city).
The visitors can see paintings by S. Popescu, G. Petrascu, F. Sirato, N. Tonitza, I. Tuculescu, Corneliu Baba and sculptures of Ion Jalea and Ion Irimescu. “The Tapestry Hall” presents the works of Aurelia Vasiliu Gheata, born in Piatra-Neamt in 1896, one of the founders of this art in Romania, inspired by the folk art and the medieval mural painting. Romanian modern art is represented by the painters: Ion Salisteanu, Simona Vasiliu Chintila, Spiru Chintila, Iulia Halaucescu, Dan Hatmanu, Eugen Craciun, Ion Gheorghiu, Corneliu Vasilescu, Ilie Boca, and by the sculptors: Ovidiu Maitec, Iulia Onita, Nicolae Fleissig and Clement Pompiliu.
