Museum of Romanian Peasant

The Museum of the Romanian Peasant is part of the large family of European Museums for Folk Arts and Traditions. It is a National Museum, functionning under patronage of the Ministry of Culture. Owner of an impressive collection of objects, placed in a historical monument building, (new Romanian style), The Museum of the Romanian Peasant has managed to put in practice a special type of museology. The original poetics developped in relation to the object was certain one of the reasons why in 1996 the Museum was awarded the EMYA - European Museum of the Year Award. The personnelized style of display in the halls has a certain number of extensions which sometime happen to go beyond the door of the Museum: that is, not only openings, concerts and conferences, but also publications and unconventional ideas, like the Missionary Museum or the Village School, for instance.

Open to the public: 10:00 - 18:00 daily, except Monday.
