The first intent to organize a public Arts Collection in Braila was the one of the collector Anastase Simu (1854-1935). He donated 30 works of art to his ‘cherished native city of Braila’, in 1928, in order to be exhibited in the halls belonging to the townhall.
In 1938 the townhall created its own cultural department which was in charge of the Painting Gallery and started to enrich it. In 1950, the Painting Gallery became an independent institution, the name of which had been changed in 1955 into that of Arts Museum, to be later integrated as an Arts Section into the structure of Braila Museum, in 1967. Ana Maria Hartuche, now retired, was the Arts Section Head up until 2001.
