The Art Museum - The Baroque Palace
The Museum was established after the art section got separated from the Banat Museum, which functioned, for a while, in a wing of the present building.
The Museum became an independent institution starting 2006, with Prof.Marcel Tolcea as director. With the completion of a large part of the restoration of the palace and the exhibition space, the Museum, now expanded, was officially opened on December 21.
The Museum includes a unique collection of works and personal belongings of painter Corneliu Baba, totalling 90 items. Another three sections include the contemporary, decorative and European art collections.
The museum heritage also comprises Romanian, Banat and religious painting collections, which are currently not exhibited, due to the lack of space.
The ground floor is dedicated to temporary exhibitions.
