The Timisoara library belonging to the Romanian Academy functions in this eclectic-secession building built in 1891. It is in fact the former Welauer house, which has been modified and changed into a museum, to lodge the collections of the History and Archeology Society, founded in 1872, by Ormos Zsigmond. Ormos started the collecting of the museum pieces with acquisitions and donations.

These objects formed the basis of the History and Archeology Society, and later on that of the Banat Museum. In 1882, as chief of the Timiș Comitat, Ormos Zsigmond launched a call subsidy for the construction of the museum, hoping to attract as many founding members as possible. Due to the increase in number of the exhibits, there were more people than the building could host. Since 1941 here functioned the Communal Library, and since 1953 the Academy Library. During the years the bas-reliefs have disappeared, only the Minerva statue survived.
