Collection(s)It is a vast monastic complex fortified under Matei Basarab (1634-1640), restored and embellished by Constantine Brancovan between 1699 and 1702. In the cellars of the Father Superior's house and the rooms of this edifice are presented lithic artefacts of a great worth originating in the architecture and decoration of some famous mediaeval monuments in Bucharest, pulled down before the year 1990 (Văcăreşti Monastery, the Saint Spiridon-Vechi and Saint Vineri Churches a.s.o.) and recovered under the guidance of bishop Calinic. The museum presents valuable items belonging to Brâncoveni Monastery and to some parishes in the area. The basic museum exhibition organized in ten rooms of the Father Superior's house, adequately set, includes liturgy precious metal pieces, icons and rare books. The Brancovan treasure comprising eight pieces worked by Braşov silver craftsmen is remarkable.
