The old building that had various uses (hunting pavilion, public house) sheltered a documentary exhibition in honour of Mihai Eminescu (1983). In 1984 a permanent exhibition of books, documents and photographs also dedicated to Mihai Eminescu opened. The building designed by the architect Virgiliu Onofrei dates from 1989, and is located on the place of an earlier building from the end of the 19th century, close to Eminescu's Lime Tree. The documentary exhibition presents photographs, texts, 62 photocopies of Mihai Eminescu's manuscripts, original photographs (Eminescu, Veronica Micle, Creangă); painting, graphics and sculpture collection (I. Neagoe, Al. Ichim, T. Mocanu, Iftimie B...6;rleanu, R. Hette, D. Hatmanu).
