Memorial museum "Paul Constantinescu"
Address: 15 N. Balcescu, nr. 15, Ploiesti, Romania
phone: 044/12.29.14

The museum was inaugurated in 1993, December 20, at the anniversary of 30 years from the death of the musician Paul Constantinescu.

The house that hosts the museum was the house of the composer brother. The exhibits from the museum remember the musician life and work.

The scores and records exposed in the glass cabinets of the museum are reflecting the spiritual wealth brought to the Romanian music by the composer.

The museum is an homage brought by the people from Ploiesti to the composer and his creation, as a house of music and Romanian spirituality for all beauty lovers.
