Established in 1932, the Tecuci Town Museum is currently housed in a building bequeathed by Teodor Cincu. In 1934, the museum obtained from its first custodian Mihai Dimitriu, his archaeology collection together with that of Professor Alecu Alesînschi. In 1974, the archaeological finds of Radu Vulpe and Ecaterina Vulpe from the excavations at Poiana-Nicore?ti were transferred from the Bucharest Institute of Archaeology. On display is an amazing collection of implements and pottery of the Neolithic Cucuteni and Cri? cultures, pottery of the Bronze Age Monteoru culture, food utensils of the Iron Age, Dacian ornaments and weaponry, a jug bearing the mask of Dionysius, Greek inscribed glass pot etc.

The Municipal Library has been named in honour of Stefan Petica, the celebrated Romanian poet.
