Collection(s)The building of the museum is a monument of architecture raised around 1850 by Vasile Pogor and his wife Zoe. The house has a long history related to the intellectual and artistic life of Jassy. Here was a literary circle, the headquarters of the "Junimea" Literary Society (since 1863) and "Convorbiri Literare" ("Literary Conversations") magazine (1867 - 1885). The house was bought in 1901 by Princess Maria Moruzzi who modified the main entry to the house, and changed the façades by fixing above the balconies her family coat of arms. The house was inherited by her son, George Brătianu who in 1938, on his departure for Bucharest, rented it to the Royal Residence in Jassy. It was restored in 1968 with a view to turning it into a literature museum and repaired again after the 1977 earthquake. The museum presents the development of Romanian literature, especially that of Moldavia, from 1800 to the present. The building comprises nine rooms, ground floor and upper floor, and two large halls. It presents the main literary periods of the past two centuries: the period of the classical writers Costache Conachi, Vasile Alecsandri, and Alexandru Donici; the "Dacia Literară" ("Literary Dacia") Salon; the writers of the Revolution of 1848 and the Union of 1859; the foundation of the "Junimea" Society of Titu Maiorescu and the "Junimea" writers (Titu Maiorescu, Vasile Pogor, P.P. Carp, Mihai Eminescu, Ion Creangă, I.L. Caragiale, Ion Slavici and others); the literature of the magazines "Contemporanul" ("The Contemporary") and "Viaţa Românească" ("Romanian Life") of the Garabet Ibrăileanu period; the "Table of Shadows" Room, the personalities of Mihail Sadoveanu, Cezar Petrescu, Alexei Mateevici, and Calistrat Hogaş; the interwar period (George Bacovia, Magda Isanos, Eusebiu Camilar), the Nicolae Labiş period. On the ground floor, there is the museum library. The exhibits include personal belongings of the writers, tapestry work, paintings from the 19th century, manuscripts of Mihail Sadoveanu, Cezar Petrescu, George Topârceanu, Otilia Cazimir, Mihai Codreanu, original photographs, first editions of the works of writers over a period of 150 years.
