The Craiova Art Museum (Romanian: Muzeul de Artă din Craiova) is an art museum in the city of Craiova, Oltenia, Romania.

The museum is housed in the Constantin Mihail Palace, built from 1898 to 1907 according to the plans of French architect Paul Gottereau.
The palace once belonged to Michael Constantine (1837–1908), a member of one of the richest families in Romania and is known as Jean Mihail Palace.
The palace is decorated with Carrara marble stairs, Lyon silk walls, Murano glass chandeliers, painted ceilings, partly gilded stucco, and Venetian mirrors.
It has hosted kings of Romania, in 1939 the exiled Polish president Ignacy Mościcki (1867–1946), and the former Yugoslav leader Josip Broz Tito (1892–1980).
