The Museum of Alexandru Ioan Cuza University in Iasi is a fascinating institution that combines academic heritage and archaeological research. Located on Titu Maiorescu Street in Copou, this museum has been functioning since 2011 as a department of the university. 

The building itself dates back to 1911 and features a Neo-Romanian style with Art Nouveau elements. 

The museum's mission is to preserve and showcase the history of higher education in Iasi. Here are some highlights:

1. Academic Collection: The museum houses a diverse collection related to the university's history. You'll find exhibits on the evolution of disciplines, academic achievements, and important figures. For instance:

- A Rector’s Office display includes furniture, academic medals, and university symbols like the silver hammer and trowel used during the university palace's construction in Copou.

- Exhibits commemorate significant events, such as the university's official opening and various anniversaries, through flags, photos, and documents.

2. Scientific Mission: Beyond preserving artifacts, the museum serves as a formative space and promotes academic exchanges. It's a platform for researching the past of higher education institutions and academic culture.
