Collection(s)The memorial house is dedicated to the Romanian historian Nicolae Iorga (1871 - 1940). The museum building is a house built in the Moldavian architecturural style, dating from the second half of the 19th century, a historic monument. The original timber walled building was demolished in 1965. The present building underwent more changes in time: the plate roof was replaced by shingle, the concrete pillars were replaced by wooden ones (1967 - 1975). In 1990 it was connected to the thermal plant and in 1993 the electric installation was restored together with the building itself. In the first two rooms, inhabited by the Iorga family (during 1876 - 1880) a period reconstruction was carried out. Of the ten lodgings changed by the historian’s family during his childhood and adolescence, it is the only building that has been preserved from the 19th century. It was attributed to Nicolae Iorga by the Botoşani people, as early as the interwar period, although the Iorga family lived there as tenants. The hall provides the opportunity of organizing a photo-documentary exhibition on a temporary basis. The basic collection is made up of items of special value: the study comprises the library (the first editions of the historian’s work), windows with original exhibits: photographs, letters, manuscripts, autographed books, memorial objects: desk clock, Viennese ornamental pot (belonging to his grandfather), family pictures, manuscripts belonging to his mother (Zulnia Iorga). Also the children's room was reconstructed (on the basis of the memoirs works). In 1967, the documentary library "Nicolae Iorga" was created. Between 1966 - 1971 the museum heritage and permanent exhibition emerged. In 1971, was inaugurated the permanent exhibition, on the occasion of the one hundred anniversary of scholar Nicolae Iorga's birth. In 1977, it became the department of the Botoşani History Museum. In 1990 the permanent exhibition was reorganized; the inauguration ceremony took place on the 27th of November 1990 on the commemoration of fifty years since N. Iorga's death (scientific counsellor and author of an important donation: Ph. D. Andrei Pippidi - grandson of the scholar from his daughter). Since 1993 it has been part of the memorial department (history of culture) of the Botoşani County Museum of History.
