The museum was inaugurated in November 2003, in the previous building of “the teacher’s school”. The building has six halls that house almost 120 works of art, but also personal objects that belonged to the artist Iulia Hălăucescu (1924 - 2007), known as “the lady of Romanian watercolors”. All the objects and works on display have been donated by Iulia Hălăucescu to the village where she was born, Tarcău. There are on display landscape paintings and numerous portaits, representing the artist’s family, but also personalities of the cultural life of the Neamţ area, among them being Constantin Mătasă and G.T. Kiril...eanu. The pieces of furniture, together with documents and ornamental objects are reminiscent of the atmosphere of the childhood house of the painter Iulia Hălăucescu.
