AddressRahovei, 3


Drobeta Turnu Severin is the first modern city in Romania that follows a predetermined plan (and then will also appear Alexandria). The city is seen as the western gateway of Romania (until 1918), in permanent relationship with Europe. The Art Museum is located inside the most imposing architectural edifice. This palace is the image of the modern development of the settlement.

The palace was built around 1890 by a team of Italian architects-builders. The architectural style is occidental eclectic with Baroque influences. Its imposing volume justifies its assessement as the most representative monument of civil architecture in the town of Turnu Severin.

The few, but suggestive exterior decorations, in baroque style, are representative - window frames decorated with floral and mythological elements (a stylized form of Medusa), columns with composite column heads, from the entrance in Risalit, trophies that crowns the facade cornice, imposing gable with two arcs.

But what gives grandeur and elegance to the palace is the inside decoration. Eclecticism is visible. On the ground floor, space reserved for receptions, meetings of the public life of the family, dinners, we can observe the late baroque influences, with the insertion of Oriental art. Door and window frames are marked by refined stucco, with vegetable, floral, geometric, stylized elements, with the putti and other symbols with many meanings.

The monumentality, elegance are features of general equilibrium, one that is measured here by a select atmosphere. Also, contributes to it the fact that every room has a special charm given by the particular aspects of decorations. The art elegance of the palace is represented by mural paintings with allegorical scenes and landscapes of the Iron Gates, the dome decorated with oriental influences and mosaic of mirrors, the paneling made of oak and gilded friezes. To these are added heavy chandeliers, of gilded bronze and Venetian glass, beautiful lacery in metal and glass, decorative late Baroque masterpieces belonging to the eighteenth-century in Europe.

This portliness building is hosting since 1990, the Art Museum in Drobeta Turnu Severin. The Art Museum is an impressive institution in the city life, a necessity of contemporaneity. In terms of an economy in permanent development, the Art Museum follows the completion of the three functions (storage-conservation, research, recovery) in the cultural life of the town Drobeta.
The museum's collection totals a rich heritage that includes pieces of great artistic value, national ranking, so the storage has been and is a primary objective.

Over 50 speciality studies presented at scientific sessions, published in professional journals, introduced these values in the national and European scientific circuit. With a rich and valuable heritage, the museum has over 40 exhibitions of its patrimony.

This touristic site
is among the first in the country that has developed its research activities through thematic projects. Those that offer the possibility of recovery of intellectual abilities and skills of the participants, apart from other educational professions, are projects of museum-school system.

The nonconformist thinking, always in step with the evolution of society itself, the Art Museum made themes that deliver to the students that knowledge which the school doesn’t have the capability to detect and no means to enforce it.
