Collection(s)The collection presents decorative fabrics imported from Italy; embroideries; manuscripts bound in precious metal covers; wooden sculptures; tombstones found in the church. The monastery has a valuable library. Between 2003 and 2004 important religious items confiscated between 1971 and 1973 were returned in order to be displayed in the museum on the occasion of the events commemorating 500 years from the death of Stephen the Great. Twenty-five embroideries, religious books and other valuable items were recovered. Meanwhile, they received back also eight icons depicting eight of the apostles. The most valuable items include the Four Gospels Book from Humor (1473), a cross (dating from 1503, the oldest on Romanian territory) with three arms, carved out of wood and a censer, made out of golden silver, given as a gift to Metropolitan Teoctist in gratitude after the high hierarch tapped Stephen the Great prince. Another very valuable item is a lace embroidery with the Ascension or the tomb cover of Lady Mary of Mangop.
