The exhibition is an adventure in the literary and political world of the subject’s time. The most beautiful book illustration by famous Romanian artists, interactive and animated installations. Twenty-three musical instruments as they would have been during the first half of the 19th century, a sound archive, sheet music, secular and religious arrangements for voice and instruments composed by Anton Pann. This is the first permanent exhibition of the house that keeps the memory of the writer and his times alive, presented in a curatoral concept by the architects Constantin Goagea and Justin Baroncea.

The property has a large yard, where the owner would house is printing press.
