The Dosoftei House is a building from the second half of the 17th century, in which in 1679 the metropolitan bishop Dosoftei settled the second typography in Moldavia.

With two facades, arched and right-angled windows, the edifice was restored between 1966-1969. Here the old literature department of the Romanian Literature Museum was opened in 1970. Among the important pieces of the museum, one can count: a Slavonian manuscript, from the 14th century (1350-1380), a "Missal" printed by Macarie in 1508 (the first Romanian printing), the oldest copies of the Moldavia Chronicles, written by Grigore Ureche and Miron Costin, the "Homily" of the metropolitan bishop Varlaam (the first printing in Moldavia, 1643), the "Psalter" (1673) of the metropolitan bishop Dosoftei and a "Gospel" (1682) of the same bishop.
