Collection(s)The museum was opened in 1967 as an Art Museum and then the Romanian Contemporary Art Museum. Since 1990 is is named the Visual Art Museum. The museum building was built between 1898 and 1900, and opened in 1906, as a Bishopric Palace. At present the building was regained by the Bishopric for a museum of religious art. The Visual Art Museum will move to a new, modern building which is going to be erected not far from the present location, in Rizea Park, near the Military Hospital, on the place of a former cinema hall. The most important collections include paintings, sculptures, graphics, decorative art (tapestry, pottery, glassware). A smaller part of the collections of paintings, sculptures and graphics are a few items from the 19th century (classic artists such as Aman, Rosenthal, Grigorescu), and from the interwar period (Victor Brauner, Theodor Pallady, Petraşcu, Tonitza etc.), as the largest part of the heritage is made up of Romanian contemporary art achieved between 1967 and 2000 (Horia Bernea, I. Gheorghiu, I. Sălişteanu, Marin Gherasim, Ana Lupaş, Gheorghe Apostu, Ion Ţuculescu and others). The museum owns goods listed in the National Cultural Heritage Treasure.
