In 1991, Radu Micliscu, the last descendant of the family, returned to Romania, and in 1996 he took back ownership of his family’s heritage and reconstructed his childhood mansion. The palace was restored with the support of the architect Șerba Sturdza, nephew of Radu Miclescu, and has 11 rooms on the ground floor, 14 rooms on the upper floor, a reception hall in the central building and two other rooms.

With 298 rooms and 19 years dedicated to its construction (1906-1925), the Palace of Culture was originally the Palace of Justice and Administration in Iai.

The Voivodes Hall, with the monogram of Queen Mary, is the most beautiful and largest room in the palace, as it is visibly decorated by the other halls. The official inauguration of the palace took place on October 11, 1925, in the presence of the royal family, King Ferdinand and Queen Maria. In 1955 the Old Palace of Justice became a Palace of Culture, hosting some of the most important cultural institutions in the country, and today it has come together under the name of the National Museum complex “Moldova” Iai which includes four national museums: the Museum of History of Moldova, the “Ștefan Procopiu” Museum of Science and Technology Ethnographic Museum of Moldova, Art Museum and Center for Research and Preservation of Cultural Heritage.
