Collection(s)In 1924 Eminescu's childhood house was pulled down. In 1940 the first memorial museum was opened in the house rebuilt in 1934, on the foundations of the poet's home. That house was pulled down too, on the grounds that it failed to observe the original structure, and in 1979 another house was inaugurated (built on the foundation of the one demolished in 1924). Until 1991 the Memorial House was patronized by the Botoşani Museum, since 1991 - 1992 it has been under the Culture Inspectorate of the Botoşani county. In 1992, it became the "Mihai Eminescu" National Studies Centre. The Ipoteşti Memorial comprises several museums and cultural landmarks: the Memorial House that is a monument and was built in 1979, by the architects Virgil Polizu and Constantin Dumitrescu; the small "Sf. Voievozi" church of the Eminovici family, documented in 1838, the village church built in 1929 on the initiative and with the contribution of Nicolae Iorga and Cezar Petrescu; the homestead (currently an ethnographic museum), in the Moldavian style, the property of the last owner of the Ipoteşti estate, doctor Papadopol; the "Mihai Eminescu" National Poetry Library and the "Mihai Eminescu" Museum. The last two objectives mentioned were inaugurated on the 15th of January, and 15th of June 2000, as part of the vast cultural programme "2000 - the Eminescu Year". The Ipoteşti Memorial owns a rich museum and cultural heritage, including items belonging to the Eminovici family (furniture, porcelain, crystals, silver teaspoon bearing the monogram of the poet’s mother, the brass seal of doctor Şerban Eminovici - the poet's brother), and the old artefacts specific of households (on display in the ethnographic museum). A special heritage is the documentary stock of the library, including 32 Eminescu manuscripts copies, photographs and autographed letters of the poet, Veronica Micle, Titu Maiorescu and other cultural personalities of the 19th century, editions of Mihai Eminescu’s works - from the Maiorescu edition from 1833 to the present day. One can visit also the tombs of Gheorghe and Raluca Eminovici, the poet’s parents and those of two of his brothers, Iorgu and Nicu. Close by there is also the poet's symbolic tomb, built in 1989 by the architect Doru Bantuş. Also at Ipoteşti stands the poet’s bronze bust by Gheorghe Anghel. The museum owns goods listed in the National Cultural Heritage Treasure.
