Old Prefect palace, also known as "Baroc Palace" was formed by the fusion and penthouse of two buildings. The fountain from the ground floor indicates that once there has been a yard. Since 1733 here has been the mining legal office and in 1735 the pay office of the military garrison.

It got its name, Baroc palace, in 1754 when it became the residence of the governor of the Austro-Hungarian Empire's region, the Banat. At that time the palace was decorated in Baroque style. Until 1849 it is the seat of the comitat, then between 1849 and 1860 here installed the leadership of the Serb Voivodin and the Timișean Banat. In 1861 it became again the seat of Timiș Comitat, they stayed in the building until 1918.

The Baroque decorating elements disappear at the end of the 19th century, when the palace becomes the House of the Comitat. This appearance is kept even today. After the first world war it becomes the seat of Timiș prefect's office. Between 1944 and 1958 it host the command of the Soviet troops stationed in the town. At the end of the '70s, when the first signs of deterioration can be seen, the Agronomic Institute leaves the building and the new proprietor, the Museum of Banat starts the renovation. In 2008, in this place opens up the Arts Museum.
