The name of the Minovici family is related, as far as the modern medicine and science of Romania is concerned, to the history of the legal medicine research in the late 19th and the early 20th century. However, the collections featured by the Dumitru Furnică Minovici Museum of Ancient Western Art have nothing to do with the field in which the family worked so thoroughly and with so much dedication, managing to enhance the public health system of the capital, amongst others.

Dumitru Furnică Minovici was the nephew of the three Minovici brothers (Mina, Ştefan and Nicolae), and he set up the namesake museum of art between 1940 and 1941. While visiting the Dumitru Furnică Minovici Museum of Ancient Western Art, tourists can admire a splendid collection of applied and decorative art (furniture, stained glass works, tapestries) pegged out here and there by fine art works (chiefly, paintings).

The Dumitru Furnică Minovici Museum of Ancient Western Art might not be the most spectacular or even the most comprehensive museum in Bucharest, but it is well worth a visit, since it does complement the sightseeing tour of the city.
