Collection(s)The exhibits include religious art items: icons, painting on wood, cloth, glass and metal, rare books, priestly garbs, artistic embroidery and religious vessels. The exhibition is located in a storeyed building, in eight rooms and two halls. The museum building was built in 1848 and bore the name of xenodochium. It used to host guests. Over the time, before it was a museum, that building had housed several institutions: medical school, shelter for the orphans of World War II, and after the war here emerged the handicraft wares, that functioned until 1958. In 1967, the site of the Saint Archiepiscopate of Bucharest underwent overall repair of the building and brought it to the its current form. The earthquake from 1977 badly damaged the building and the Patriarchate had it repaired. The earthquake from 1990 damaged the building again. In 2000, the consolidation and restoration of the building was completed.
