The house sheltering the Anton Pann memorial exhibition is a monument of urban architecture, built by the middle of the 18th century, with turret and basement. The exhibition was intended to reveal the travels on Vâlcea land, from 1826 - 1828, 1836 - 1840, of the man who rose to public awareness as "witty as a proverb" and who taught music at the school organized by Râmnic Bishopric. Anton Pann (1794, Sliven Bulgaria - 1854, Bucharest) took refuge in 1812 in Bucharest, and in 1827 was appointed religious music teacher at the Seminary in Râmnicu Vâlcea. The house-museum moved 37 meters away from its original site due to town planning. The exhibition illustrate...s the interior of a modest market town dwelling from the middle of the 19th century. The exhibits include pieces of furniture (a sofa, a library, a table, chairs), decorative tin, brass and German silver items, and portraits of personalities from that time, such as: Mother Meletina, abbess of "Dintr-un Lemn" convent and the printer Ion Popovici, who was related to the writer's life and work. In the second room of the exhibition there are on display an interior that once comprised painted furniture specific of the Transylvanian area, which emphasizes the links that Anton Pann used to have with that region. In the last room of the museum there are on display musical works, folklore collections, poetry and stories by Anton Pann. ("Noul Erotocrit", Sibiu, 1837, "Fabule si istorioare", Bucharest, 1841, "Povestea Vorbei", Bucharest, 1847, Nastratin Hogea, Bucharest, 1853, etc.), pointing to the value of his printing and literary activity.
