Working as a branch of the National Museum of Art, the Art Collections Museum is housed in the 1812 Romanit Palace. The museum was set up in 1978, and its patrimony consists of the collections amassed by means of sundry extensive private donations. In time, the collections have come to count some 12,000 works of art, showcasing, in terms of international artists, names like Gustave Courbet, van Gogh, Pissarro, David Teniers and Antoine Bourdelle.

A special emphasis in laid on the works created by Romanian artists (Ştefan Luchian, Nicolae Tonitza, Nicolae Grigorescu, Constantin Brâncuşi, just to list a few) which form, in fact, the largest part of the fine art patrimony of the museum. On top of the fine art works, the Art Collections Museum also exhibits a miscellaneous collection of folk and decorative art (both Romanian and international works): furniture, textiles, carpets, icons, pottery and so on.
