The Theodor Pallady museum is located on 22 Spătarului Street, near the Armenian church, in a quiet neighborhood of beautiful houses. Melik House (today Theodor Pallady Museum) is one of the oldest in Bucharest, built in 1760, in the traditional Romanian style. The name comes from one of the owners, Iacob Melik, who restored it in the second half of the 19th century, but retaining its original style. In 1970, the house was arranged as a museum, so now the collection of the spouses Serafina and Gheorghe Răut can be admired.
The museum has some remarkable canvases of the great Romanian painter Theodor Pallady, as well as a number of 800 different paintings (landscapes, nudes, portraits, interiors). They are exposed periodically, in thematic series. Among the 1,270 pieces in the collection of the Serafina and Gheorghe Răuţ spouses are works by French painters such as Lubin Baujin, Edmond Aman Jean, Carolus Duran, Camille Corot, or Dutch, such as Jan van de Capelle, by Romanian Paul Verona and Jean Al. Steriadi; also pieces of decorative art, ancient Greek-Roman, Egyptian, Khmer Indian, as well as Italian and French Renaissance sculptures.
