Collection(s)The monastery comprises the old church, built in 1840, that underwent overall repair in 1960, and has an old altar form 1700, as well as a summer chapel, a body of cells with chapel, and annexes. It was listed as a historic monument in 1974. During that time all the valuable items from the former Buciumeni Monastery were gathered in a museum collection in the house of the abbey behind the church. The museum was built in 1945 due to Constantin Ifrim from Buciumeni. At first it sheltered a carpet and pottery workshop. When the monastery ceased to function (1960 - 1975) the building was used as a camp for pre-school children. The museum collection includes 280 items: wooden icons, religious books, prayer books, pottery, clothes, documents, two emperor's doors, two epitaphs etc. The window exhibits include rare books from the 19th century at the earliest. We mention the five volumes of the Bible of Buzău from 1859, the Lives of the Saints, the Orthodox Book for all the months of the year, a Gospel, an Apostle, prayer books, a Triodynon, a Penticostar (religious book), a Horologe, the Psalter in several copies in the transition letter, most printed at Neamţ Monastery. There is a copy of a book printed at Sibiu in 1852, edited by Metropolitan Andrei Şaguna and an Apostle of Râmnic from 1794. The pottery collection includes two small church models, plates, vases, small jugs painted with floral motifs at Buciumeni Monastery between 1945 and 1960.
