Villa Kligman was the home of one of the most famous Jewish families from Chişinău. It was built in 1898 on behalf of the lawyer Moses Kligman. Two ionic columns adorn the entrance. Today, the one-story building seems to have fallen out of time among the monumental buildings on the Stefan cel Mare boulevard. It housed the local art museum in Soviet times.
