Collection(s)Upon the death of the writer Cezar Petrescu (9th of March 1961) his wife, Florica Petrescu, his brother and sisters inherited the house. The heirs offered it as a donation to the state which was accepted in 1964, and the museum opened officially on the 17th of December 1967 in the presence of the family, local and county officials, representatives of the Ministry of Culture and the Writers' Union, as well as friends of the writer's. In 1982, the family donated some of the writer's personal belongings. The lawyers Elena and Dionisie Hobilescu raised the building in 1918. Cezar Petrescu, who lived there with his family between 1937 and 1961, bought it in 1937. The building underwent partial repairs in 1977 and 1992. The exhibits include pieces of furniture (the study desk), personal belongings, Romanian rugs, pottery; sculptures signed by Oscar Han, paintings (Iosif Iser, Tonitza); the writer's library of over 10,000 volumes (half of them in French), of which 627 volumes with dedications from other writers. The documentary exhibition presents original documents, family papers, marriage certificates, diplomas, letters and manuscripts, photographs and first editions of the writer's works. There are also translations by Cezar Petrescu (1892 - 1961) from his works into other languages, graphics made by the writer. The press study on the second floor comprises newspaper and review collections gathered from his high school years.
