The museum is hosted by the Cantacuzino Palace, one of the most beautiful buildings in Bucharest.

The palace was constructed at the beginning of the 20th century and its architectural style is represented by a combination of rococo and neoclassical French elements with elements of Art Nouveau.

The decorative elements are represented by mural paintings, sculptures and sculptural ornaments. In 1956 a museum was founded here in the memory of the great Romanian composer George Enescu, who actually lived in the house behind the palace with his wife, Princess Maria Cantacuzino.  

The museum has permanent exhibitions with various belongings of the great composer such as documents, musical drafts, diplomas, musical instruments and other personal objects.
