Constanța Museum of Art, ConstanțaCod 1145

Museum of Art from Constanța is a county museum established  based on the collection of paintings and sculptures originated from the Art Gallery of Constanţa City Hall, enriched with works transferred from the National Museum of Art and through purchases and donations made by Marius Bunescu, Ion Jalea, Boris Caragea.

Stated as the second institution of its kind from Romania, after the Bucharest Museum of Art, the museum from Constanţa is housed inside a building with a  significant history for the seashore community. The impressive building that today houses collections of the Museum of Art was the first school built in Constanţa. The educational institution was built between 1891 – 1893 upon the initiative of the mayor from that time, who wanted to change the aspect of the city by several impressive buildings. The school was named “Prince Ferdinand and Princess Maria” and housed two individual and totally separate educational institutions: one for boys and one for girls.

The first school from Constanţa worked in this building until 1985, when the building was converted into an annex of the Art Museum which exists in Constanţa for several decades, but without a permanent office. It should be noted that the Art Museum from the seashore had a rich heritage, even before the institution was moved to the building of the former school. An important moment in the history of the Art Museum from Constanţa took place during 1990, when the works from the protocol villa of Nicolae Ceauşescu from Neptun were donated to the institution. At that time the museum took possession of paintings and sculptures of some famous Romanian artists.

Dedicated to painting, sculpture and graphics, the museum from Constanţa currently holds a collection of over 7400 works chronologically arranged, illustrating exemplarily the Romanian art. The museum galleries includes all major Romanian artists with works of art of rare beauty.
