An emblematic building designed in the spirit of the community palaces of Western Europe, combining several architectural styles: neo-gothic, romantic and neo-baroque.
Built between 1906 and 1925 on the edge of the former Moldovan medieval court, the building originally served as an administrative and judicial palace. In 1955 the purpose of the building was changed to a cultural one and it became the host of several cultural institutions in Iasi.

Currently there are 4 museums, which are operated under the name National Museum Complex "Moldova" Iași:

  • The History Museum of Moldova;
  • "Ștefan Procopiu" Museum of Science and Technology;
  • The Museum of Art;
  • The Ethnographic Museum of Moldova.

Beyond the architecture, the clock in the tower of the Palace of Culture has made an important contribution to the fame of the building. It inherited the memory of the old clock installed in the tower of the gate of the royal court in 1728, which for a long time marked the rhythm of the city.
