Collection(s)It is a historic and architectonic monument built between 1800 and 1811 in a Neo-Gothic style, by architect Johan Freiwald. A castle of the Sturdza family (1811 - 1862), princely residence of Al. I. Cuza (1862 - 1966) and castle of the Cuza family (until 1895), it later belonged to the Moruzzi-Brătianu family. Between 1936 and 1944 it functioned as a tuberculosis hospital for the Romanian Railway Company, and was destroyed in 1944. Since 1979 it has been rebuilt as a museum, sheltering pieces of furniture that belonged to the family, covers, Bacarra crystal artefacts, Sèvres porcelain, clothes and personal belongings of the Cuza, Kogălniceanu, Negri, and Sadoveanu families, paintings and statuettes by Romanian and foreign artists from the 19th century (Nicolae Grigorescu, Constantin Lecca, Giuseppe de Nitis, Canova, Barias). Between 1979 and 1982 the castle was organized as a local museum of history and ethnography. The museum has the following contributors: Gheorghe Platon, Ion Antonescu, Maria Huminic-Teclean, and Ion Arhip.
