Ghidul muzeelor i coleciilor din Romnia

Un Cicerone contemporan
Secolul trecut a fost cel n care a devenit evident c omenirea se afl ntr-o criz a administrrii informaiilor. Chiar i manualele dedicate gestionrii informaiilor au devenit prea numeroase pentru a mai putea fi uor reinute. Traversm o perioad de suprasaturare cu informaii. La ce bun, atunci, o nou carte care s adune, laolalt, date sintetice despre un domeniu anume n acest caz, al muzeelor? Pe de o parte, rspunsul st ntr-o fireasc dorin de cunoatere exhaustiv i enciclopedic a realitii. Pe de alt parte, informaia are un ciclu de via din ce n ce mai scurt, ceea ce face ca oamenii s nu mai aib rbdare pentru actualizarea la intervale de timp mai mari de un an. Un ghid al muzeelor (chiar i din Romnia) de acum trei sau patru decenii nu mai poate fi utilizat cu folos astzi, fiind de interes doar pentru istoricii muzeelor. Deocamdat, poate i din raiuni practice, ghidurile anuale rmn populare, poate, nu doar din obinuin. Pe de alt parte, va veni, probabil, vremea cnd informaia din asemenea ghiduri va avea nevoie de actualizri chiar mai dese. n cazul de fa, Ghidul muzeelor i coleciilor din Romnia reprezint ceva mai mult dect o simpl actualizare a unor date administrate (i inute la zi) pe o pagin de Internet. Este o carte de referin, pentru oricare profesionist al muzeelor, ca i pentru cei care le sunt, pur i simplu, apropiai. Ghidul reprezint un moment de analiz a ceea ce au obinut muzeografii romni, la 17 ani de la rsturnarea regimului comunist. Momentul reprezint, nc, unul care marcheaz nceputul unei noi etape de dezvoltare. Expoziiile permanente nu pot fi schimbate att de uor. Pentru multe muzee din Romnia, problema nnoirii expoziiilor permanente a fost una legat nu doar de eliberarea de barierele ideologice, ci i de posibilitatea alegerii unor maniere de expunere mai apropiate de public (cele audiovizuale, n primul rnd), de posibilitatea utilizrii unor materiale mai performante i de conexarea expoziiilor cu celelalte mijloace de expresie muzeal (prin conferine, lecii etc.). Cel puin primii ase apte ani, dup 1989, au nsemnat ani de acumulri, de studii, de schimburi de experien, de reaezare a ideilor i, totodat, de schimb de generaii. Apoi, de prin 1997, structurile organizaionale ale muzeelor au nceput s se schimbe. Corespunztor, acest lucru a nceput s se vad n activitatea muzeelor i chiar n modul de etalare a expoziiilor temporare i permanente. Acum, la sfritul lui 2006, putem spune c majoritatea muzeelor romneti au atins un grad de maturitate suficient de nalt, nct s ne permit s facem o evaluare: ncotro s-au dezvoltat muzeele din Romnia, ce modele au urmat, ce direcii i propun. Ghidul muzeelor i coleciilor din Romnia ne ofer o oglind destul de exact a situaiei muzeelor din Romnia. Este o oglind cu dou fee: pe de o parte, fiecare muzeu este prezentat cu o scurt fi istoric; pe de alt parte, prezentarea expoziiilor curente poate sugera dezvoltarea viitoare a muzeelor. Despre primul voleu al oglinzii se cunosc, deja, multe lucruri. Ghidul insist nu doar asupra coleciilor, ci i asupra cldirilor. Multe dintre ele sunt monumente istorice sau, n orice caz, cldiri cu valoare istoric. Viitorul, n mod firesc, prezint multe incertitudini i, desigur, nu toate sunt evidente. Muzeele se confrunt cu o dramatic lips de spaiu. Foarte puine sunt cele care au reuit s dobndeasc, dup 1989, spaii mai potrivite pentru funciunile muzeale. Restituirile de proprieti au dus, deja, n unele cazuri, la evacuarea muzeelor, iar alte situaii sunt de nregistrat n scurt vreme. Din pcate, autoritile nu au reuit s pregteasc, n toate cazurile, noi spaii de expunere. Patrimoniul a crescut considerabil, n ultima jumtate de secol, dar suprafeele desfurate ale muzeelor au rmas, cel mai adesea, aceleai. De aici, o lips acut de spaii, mai ales, pentru depozite, laboratoare i activiti cu publicul. Procesul de reorganizare a expoziiilor permanente se afl (raportat la scara ntregii ri) n plin desfurare. Paradoxal, muzeele care au reuit s i schimbe expoziiile n primii doi trei ani, dup 1989, se gsesc, acum, n faa aceleiai probleme ca i muzeele care au rmas cu expoziiile nemodificate: este necesar nlocuirea lor; de data aceasta, nu din motive de uzur moral, ci din cauza expunerii, realizate cu mijloace muzeotehnice foarte modeste i bazate de modaliti de exprimare expoziionale demodate. Pe de alt parte, ceva s-a schimbat fundamental n activitatea muzeelor din Romnia, i acest lucru trebuie spus, cu att mai mult cu ct Ghidul nu are cum s l fac remarcat: muzeele nu au fost niciodat att de aproape de publicul lor, ca acum. Desigur, mai sunt extrem de multe lucruri de fcut, dar este esenial c managerii muzeelor (mai ales, cei din tnra generaie) au neles c, dac vor s aib succes n activitatea lor, sunt obligai s se dedice mai mult publicului i acest lucru se va reflecta, mai devreme sau mai trziu, n felul n care sunt percepute instituiile muzeale i colectivele manageriale ale acestora, att de ctre autoriti i pres (din ce n ce mai important, ca factor de formare a opiniei publice), ct i de ctre public, n sensul restrns al termenului. Bineneles, n spatele acestei schimbri stau mari acumulri n direcia schimbrii, adesea, invizibile pentru public: muzeele s-au dotat cu mijloace tehnice moderne (mai ales, n domeniul tehnologiei informaionale), i-au trimis specialitii la programe de pregtire profesional n ar i n strintate, au angajat personal n specialiti noi (marketing, web design, relaii cu presa etc.), au legat relaii stabile de colaborare cu muzee din strintate (att din rile

vecine, ct i din Vestul Europei), i-au dezvoltat bazele de date, au mbuntit condiiile de conservare a patrimoniului .a.m.d.. Aderarea Romniei la Uniunea European va grbi, cu siguran, acest proces de schimbare. Tocmai de aceea, este de dorit ca Ghidul de fa s vad o nou ediie, la un an dup aderare, nregistrnd schimbrile fa de situaia actual. Din aceast perspectiv, Ciceronele muzeelor romneti trebuie s rmn la fel de atent la rapidul proces de nnoire muzeal, atrgnd atenia asupra formelor recente de exprimare expoziional i a celor stabile de comunicare cu publicul, prin activiti educaionale. Cu alte cuvinte, un Cicerone nelinitit de misiunea pe care o are i de importana cultural deosebit a demersului su. Preedintele Comitetului Naional ICOM Dr. Virgil tefan Niulescu

A Contemporary Cicerone

In the last century it became only clear the fact that humanity is hardly able to manage all information. Even the number of information management guides baffles our retentive memory. We are overwhelmed by data of all kinds. What is the good of a new comprehensive book on another domain - in our case, the museum world? On the one hand, the answer rests on a natural desire for knowing reality in an exhaustive, all-encompassing way. On the other hand, the information is more and more short-lived, entailing a yearlong validity for any given information by most standards. A guide to the museums (be they even Romanian) dating to three or four decades ago can be of no use now, as it seems relevant only to museum historians. For the time being, maybe out of practical reasons, the annual guides remain popular, and that might not come only from routine. On the other hand, updating could become necessary even more often. In the present case, the Guide to the Museums and Collections in Romania is more than a mere updating of data managed (and updated) on an Internet page. It is a reference book, for any museum professional, and for those keen on museums. The Guide is a landmark for the achievements of the Romanian curators, seventeen years after the upheaval that put an end to the communist regime. This landmark is also symbolic for a new development stage. The permanent exhibitions cannot be changed that easily. For many museums in Romania, the issue of renewing the permanent exhibitions relates not only to the emancipation from ideological constraints, but also an opportunity to choose friendlier display designs (first of all, audiovisual ones), a possibility to use more efficient material and to connect the exhibitions to the other means of presentation (conferences, lectures, etc.). At least for six, seven years after 1989, we gathered information and undertook studies; we exchanged experience, reconsidered out ideas and let the new generation settle in. Then, since 1997, the organisational structures of the museums have undergone changes. Those have become apparent in the activity of the museums and even in the display of the temporary and permanent exhibitions. Currently, at the end of 2006, we can say that most Romanian museums are mature enough to allow an evaluation: the development pattern the Romanian museums adopted, and followed, and their trends. The Guide to the Museums and Collections in Romania mirrors the situation of the Romanian museums. We can look both ways: on the one hand, each museum is presented in a short "historical" file; on the other hand, the presentation of the current exhibitions might suggest the subsequent development of the museums. The first image in the "mirror" takes shape in front of our eyes. The Guide emphasises both the collections and the buildings. Most of them are historic monuments or, at any rate, historic buildings. Naturally, the future has in store many uncertainties, and, surely, not all are obvious. The museums face dramatic space shortage. After 1989, very few of them succeeded in obtaining adequate premises for museum activities. The property retrocessions have already led to some of the museums being evacuated, and there is more to come. Unfortunately, the authorities failed to establish new locations for all the museums. The heritage grew considerably over the last fifty years, but the museum room stayed the same in most cases. Hence, an acute space shortage, especially for storerooms, laboratories, and public relations. The permanent exhibition reorganisation process is under way (across the country). Paradoxically, the museums that succeeded to change their exhibitions during the first two or three years, after 1989, are now facing the same problems as the museums that have their exhibitions unchanged: it is necessary to replace them; this time, not because they are obsolete, but because the display carried out by very modest museum technology means, following old fashioned exhibition outlooks. On the other hand, something has fundamentally changed in the activity of the Romanian museums, and that should be emphasised, so much more as the Guide cannot reveal it: the museums have never been as close to their public as now. Of course, there are still very many things to do, but it is crucial for the museum managers (especially the young ones) to understand that, if they want to succeed in their activity,
Ghidul muzeelor i coleciilor din Romnia 7 www.cimec.ro

they are obliged to dedicate themselves more to the public - and that will sooner or later reflect in the way the museum institutions and their managerial staff are perceived, both by the authorities and the press (an important factor for public opinion), and by the public, in the narrow sense. Of course, this change reflects the steps towards the change, that the public cannot see: the museums are endowed with modern technical means (especially information technology tools), sent their specialists to training programmes in this country and abroad, employed personnel for "new" jobs (marketing, web design, press relations, etc.), established stable relations with foreign museums (both from neighbouring countries and from Western Europe), developed the databases, improved the heritage conservation conditions, a.s.o. Romania's EU accession will certainly speed up the changing process. That is why the present Guide should have a new edition, a year after the accession, so that the possible changes should be put down. Considering that, the Cicerone of the Romanian museums should keep up the museum renewal process, emphasise the recent display patterns, and boost communication with the public by educational activities. In other words, a Cicerone in "turmoil" due to its mission and to its outstanding cultural importance. Dr. Virgil tefan Niulescu President of the ICOM National Committee

Introducere

Ghidul de fa ofer informaii despre 740 de muzee i colecii de interes public din Romnia, aflate n 410 localiti: muzee, secii muzeale, muzee n aer liber, case memoriale, colecii steti, muzee bisericeti, expoziii permanente i galerii de art, parcuri arheologice, grdini zoologice i botanice, peteri amenajate pentru vizitare. Ghidul este organizat pe regiuni istorice, pe judee i pe localiti, n ordine alfabetic, ncepnd cu Bucureti, capitala rii i oraul cu cele mai multe muzee (peste 57). Ne-am gndit c n acest fel mbinm cel mai bine perspectiva geografic i sugestia unor trasee turistice i culturale regionale cu nevoia unei organizri clare, n care cititorul s identifice ct mai uor zona i muzeele care l intereseaz. Cuprinsul amnunit al ghidului ine loc i de indice geografic. Fiecare regiune este precedat de o hart care marcheaz localitile n care exist muzee i colecii. Regiunea, la rndul ei, este identificat pe harta rii ntr-un medalion. Pentru Bucureti dm att imaginea general a planului oraului ct i un detaliu al zonei centrale, unde se gsesc cele mai multe muzee. Pentru detalii geografice putei consulta harta on-line a Romniei realizat la CIMEC (http://map.cimec.ro), pe care putei selecta diverse teme de patrimoniu cultural (muzee i colecii, situri arheologice, lcauri de cult etc.), putei naviga i detalia zona de interes (deocamdat pn la scara 1:100.000 i fr hri de orae). Harta digital este legat direct cu bazele noastre de date, de unde putei afla informaii la zi despre obiectivele dintr-o localitate sau alta. Fa de ediia precedent a ghidului, publicat n anul 2000, volumul de fa este mai bogat att cantitativ (740 de instituii repertoriate fa de 690, cu toate c nu apar cele peste 60 de muzee desfiinate n aceast perioad), ct mai ales calitativ. Cea mai mare parte a informaiilor a fost actualizat i mbogit, adugndu-se, ca noutate, adresele de contact prin e-mail (peste 200) i adresele siturilor web ale muzeelor sau ale paginilor web n care acestea sunt prezentate de ctre ali parteneri (peste 230 de adrese). De asemenea, sunt semnalate muzeele care dein bunuri culturale clasate n Tezaurul patrimoniului cultural naional pn la data finalizrii textului pentru ghid. Pentru fiecare obiectiv gsii adrese complete, inclusiv adresa de coresponden, numere de telefon i fax, adrese e-mail i de situri web, program de vizitare, data nfiinrii, subordonare, date despre colecii i exponate deosebite, istoria instituiilor i a cldirilor care le adpostesc. Pentru echilibrul lucrrii i din cauza restriciilor de spaiu, unele descrieri de colecii au fost reduse, chiar dac n versiunea on-line acestea sunt mai ample. O alt noutate este traducerea n limba englez a denumirilor i descrierii muzeelor i coleciilor, ceea ce face ghidul accesibil i celor care nu cunosc limba romn. Din economie de spaiu, nu am mai tradus i adresa sau programul de vizitare, acestea fiind informaii uor de neles i de ctre strini. Datele provin din baza naional de date realizat i ntreinut la CIMEC Institutul de Memorie Cultural ncepnd din anul 1993, cu sprijinul financiar al Ministerului Culturii i Cultelor. Baza de date, accesibil i ntr-o versiune on-line permanent actualizat (www.cimec.ro), a pornit de la datele existente la CIMEC i la Ministerul Culturii i Cultelor, fiind actualizat, corectat i mbogit de-al lungul anilor pe baza rspunsurilor la chestionarele trimise la muzee i la direcii judeene pentru cultur, culte i patrimoniul cultural naional, dar i pe baza informaiilor culese din reviste i alte publicaii de specialitate, ca i a celor obinute de noi direct prin zeci de telefoane, e-mailuri sau contacte personale cu cei care lucreaz n aceste instituii. Prin eforturile noastre constante i cu sprijinul colegilor din muzee s-a constituit astfel cea

Introduction
This guide provides information on 740 public museums and collections located in 410 Romanian localities: museums, museum departments, open air museums, memorial houses, village collections, church museums, permanent exhibitions and art galleries, archaeological parks, zoological and botanic gardens, and tourist caves. The structure of the guide follows the historical regions, counties, and localities, in alphabetical order, starting with Bucharest, the capital of this country, and the city with the highest number of museums (57). We thought that in this way we make the best of the geographical perspective, while suggesting cultural regions and tourist attractions to readers searching for a clear organised view upon the museums and their locations. The detailed contents of the guide can serve also as a geographical index. A map marking the localities with museums and collections precedes each region. In its turn, the region is identified on the map of the country in a medallion. For Bucharest, we give both the general image of the city plan and a detail of the central area, where most museums can be found. For geographical details you can look into the on-line digital map of Romania made at CIMEC (http://map.cimec.ro), on which you can select various cultural heritage themes (museums and collections, archaeological sites, places of worship, etc.), navigate and zoom in the relevant area (for the time being at the scale 1:100,000, and no city maps). The digital map is directly linked to our databases, where you can find updated information on the sites in a locality or another. As compared with the previous edition of the guide, published in 2000, the present volume is richer quantitatively (740 recorded institutions as compared with 690, without taking into consideration the over 60 museums that ceased to exist during that period), and above all qualitatively. Most data have been updated and enriched, and completed with the contact e-mail (over 200) and web site addresses of the museums or of the web pages where other partners present these (over 230 addresses). Meanwhile, we point to the museums that hold property listed in the National Cultural Heritage Treasure until the date we completed the text of the guide. Each site is provided with full addresses, including the mail address, telephone and fax numbers, e-mail and web site addresses, opening hours, foundation date, subordination, data on special collections and exhibits, the history of the institutions and the buildings sheltering them. For reasons of fair balance and space saving, we shortened some collection descriptions even if in the on-line version they are kept longer. Another novelty is the translation into the English language of the names and descriptions of the museums and collections, which makes the guide accessible also to those who do not know the Romanian language. We did not translate the addresses and opening hours, as foreigners can easily understand these data in Romanian. The text comes from the national database carried out and maintained by CIMEC - the Institute for Cultural Memory since 1993, with the financial support of the Ministry of Culture and Religious Affairs. The database, accessible in a permanently updated on-line version (www.cimec.ro), started from the data available at CIMEC and at the Ministry of Culture and Religious Affairs. Over the years, we have updated, corrected, and enriched the content by considering the answers to the questionnaires we sent to museums and county authorities for culture, religions, and the national cultural heritage. We also gathered data from reviews and other relevant publications, and directly
Ghidul muzeelor i coleciilor din Romnia 9 www.cimec.ro

contacted institutions and authorities through tens of telephone calls, e-mails or personal contacts with people who work in these institutions. Thus, due to our constant endeavours, and the kind support of our colleagues, we could build up the most complex updated information source on the museum institutions in Romania. That does not mean that the dynamic reality we are living in fails to play tricks on us: in spite of our desire for exhaustive accurate data, we do not always learn on time about the founding or the dismantling of certain museums, about the change in the addresses or telephone numbers, about the changes in the opening hours, and others. The guide will provide you with data available to us up to the 1st of September 2006. We apologise to all those who might feel offended for not having been mentioned. We also apologise for the possible accidental inconsistencies, few as they might be. The on-line database will be updated on a permanent basis, as you are going to send us observations, corrections, and further data. Acknowledgements are due to all the museum institutions and colleagues who sent us information and pictures for the national database. We hope that the guide will prove a useful tool for all those who are keen on testimonies of the past, on beautiful and interesting things, travel, visit, and trip planning. The large or small museums and collections are waiting for you to discover them. Irina Oberlnder-Trnoveanu Deputy Director of CIMEC Bucharest, November 2006

By the middle of the 16th century, Prince Mircea Ciobanul employed craftsmen to rebuild the princely court on its old foundations. Burned by the Turks during the battles of 1595, the princely residence was entirely rebuilt by Matei Basarab. Upon his accession to the throne of Wallachia, Prince Constantine Brncovan built the princely mansion, named "the Large", masonry rooms for the princely guards, as well as the princely bath. The main entrance gate was fitted with a watch tower. The elegant palace impressed many foreigners arrived at the court. Damaged by fire, destroyed by earthquakes, left in ruin following the Austrian-Russian-Turkish war from 1768 - 1774, this princely residence was no longer inhabitable. Thus, Alexander Ipsilanti had to build a new princely court in Dealul Spirii - the New Court, in 1775. After it was built, the buildings of the previous residence, found in ruin, became known under the name of the Old Court. Lately the archaeologists had uncovered many evidence on the Old Court. The edifice bears the seal of the reigns of Grigore Ghica, erban Cantacuzino, and Constantine Brncovan. Its beautiful portal dates to the time of Prince tefan Cantacuzino. Only fragments remained from the old painting (Mircea Ciobanul's sons, and, later erban Cantacuzino's sons had ordered its execution). Currently, the Old House Architectural Complex is under restoration.

The National Museum of Art of Romania has three art galleries and a royal history. The European Art Gallery, Romanian Old Art Gallery, Romanian Modern Art Gallery sum up works displayed in an attractive modern manner, and any visit is a pleasant, interesting way to spend time. The history borne by the building makes the visit a travel in time, as on the place where the Kretzulescu wings stands today, the boyar Dinicu Golescu raised, between 1812 and 1820, a house of impressive size for the contemporaries. During the time of Alexandru Ioan Cuza the building turned into a princely lodging, and during the time of Charles I, a winter palace. The king adorned it after his taste and was also involved with developing a painting collection, today the core of the European Art Gallery. The palace underwent a stage of modifications

during the time of Ferdinand and Charles II, and its changed in 1948, when it was decided to open here a museum of art and the reception halls of the central body were assigned to the State Council. During the events of December 1989, eighty per cent of the building was damaged, and over 1,000 works of art were deteriorated or destroyed. In 1990 the building in Revolution Square turned into the National Museum of Art of Romania. The European Art Gallery, sheltered in the Kretzulescu wing, reflects, due to the distribution of the 300 works, the main art schools of Europe between the 14th and 19th centuries. From the late Gothic and the Renaissance, continuing with Mannerism and Caravagism, up to the Baroque and Rococo patterns, Italian painting is represented by works of the masters Domenico Veneziano, Jacopo Bassano, Bronzino, Jacopo Tintoretto, Luca Giordano, Orazio Gentileschi, Jacopo Amigoni. The German art collection illustrates the German version of the international Gothic or the north Renaissance pattern due to remarkable works by Bartholomus Zeitblom, Lucas Cranach the Elder and Hans von Aachen. Religious fervour and burning temperament characterize the Spanish paintings by El Greco, Francisco Zurbarn, Alonso Cano, Antonio Pereda. Realism, the mystery of the light and shade or the epic picturesque of the scenes can be found in the works of Flemish artists (Bartholomus Spranger, Pieter Brueghel the Younger, Pieter Paul Rubens, David Ryckaert III) and Dutch artists (Rembrandt Harmensz, Van Rijn, Jan Davidsz, De Heem). The French art halls are spanned by works from the 16th - 19th centuries. Important artists include: J.B. Oudry, Nicolas de Largillire, Gaspar Dughet, Joseph Parrocel, next to Claude Monet, Paul Signac, Alfred Sisley. The sculpture collection includes remarkable creations by Auguste Rodin, Antoine Bourdelle, Jules Dalou and Camille Claudel. The Romanian Old Art Gallery includes 900 pieces offering a unitary image upon the cultural life in the historical provinces: Wallachia, Moldavia and Transylvania from the 14th 18th centuries. Remarkable are the fresco fragments (those from Curtea de Arge [Arge Court] - 1526) and the icons (Wailing the Lord) - the 15th 16th centuries, Saints Simeon and Sava - 1522 - 1523, both from the monastery of Curtea de Arges, the Virgin with Child surrounded by prophets - the second half of the 16th century, Pngrai monastery), embroideries (Epitaphs of Cozia Monastery 1395 -1396 and of Neam Monastery - 1437, the Air of "St. Nicholas of Rdui" Church about 1493, the Stoles of Tismana Monastery early 16th century), manuscripts (the Four Gospels, achieved in a Byzantine workshop, whose text dates from the 12th century, the Four Gospels of Gavril Uric - 1436 - 1437, the Four Gospels of monk Dimitrie Gramaticul - 1512), gold and silver items (the censer from Tismana - 1508 1512, the shrine from Hurezi - 1691 -1692, the precious metal vessel with artistic incrustations from Precista Monastery in Bacu 1491 - 1496, the procession cross from Slatina Monastery - 1558), wooden and stone sculptures (the imperial doors from the church in Crligul (Bacu) - early 16th century, the rib with the coats of arms of Moldavia from "Three Hierachs" in Jassy, 1637 - 1638). The gallery includes a Treasure to which three halls are dedicated, where one can see secular and religious items out of precious metals and stones, jewels and costume accessories from the 14th - 19th centuries. The Romanian Modern Art Gallery reconstructs, due to the 700 paintings and sculptures, the path of Romanian art from early 19th century - illustrated by the departure from the religious art of Byzantine inspiration - to the age of the great classics of Romanian art. The two centuries of art, revealed by numerous artistic trends and tendencies, are represented both by famous names, relevant for the entire Romanian culture, and by less known outstanding artists included for the first time in the permanent exhibition of the National Gallery. The tradition of portraits and the formalism of the "painters of thin" are illustrated

in the Gallery by the works of Anton Chladek, Giovanni Schiavoni, Iosef August Schoefft, while Theodor Aman' and Gheorghe Tattarescu's paintings show how these two artists gave Romanian painting a new interpretation of academicism and neoclassicism. Outstanding personalities of national art like Nicolae Grigorescu, Ioan Andreescu, tefan Luchian, Nicolae Tonitza, Theodor Pallady, Gheorghe Petracu, Constantin Brncui, Dimitrie Paciurea, Corneliu Baba, Alexandru Ciucurencu, Ion uculescu, many other artists complete the general configuration of the represented period, including: Iosif Iser, Camil Ressu, Francisc Sirato, tefan Dumitrescu, Ion Jalea, Jean Al. Steriadi, Nicolae Drscu, Samuel Mtzner, Petre Iorgulescu Yor, Dimitrie Ghea, Rudolf Schweitzer-Cumpna, Lucian Grigorescu, etc. The constant tendency of Romanian culture to intertwine with European trends is revealed in the Romanian modern art exhibition by the vanguard works of Victor Brauner, Marcel Iancu, Hans Mattis-Teutsch, M. H. Maxy, Arthur Segal. One of the halls of the gallery is dedicated exclusively to the sculptor Constantin Brncui and gathers youth and maturity works, such as: Ordeal, Child's Head, Sleep, Prometheus, Prayer, Danaid, Silence of the Earth.

Colecia "Vasile Grigore", declarat ncepnd cu data de 25 mai 2004 de utilitate public, nsumeaz numai n spaiile de expunere peste 500 de piese i ni se nfieaz ca un ansamblu care vizeaz treptat aproape toate domeniile artelor frumoase. n tradiia colecionarilor K.H. Zambaccian, Anastase Simu, Dr. Dona, selecia de lucrri din donaia Vasile Grigore conine lucrri de pictur, sculptur i grafic romneasc interbelic (Theodor Pallady, Gheorghe Petracu, Iosif Iser, Nicolae Tonitza) i contemporan (Alexandru Ciucurencu, Comeliu Baba, Gheorghe Vntoru, Ion Musceleanu, Lucian Grigorescu, Constantin Blendea, Henry Catargi, Ion Popescu Negreni, Ion Irimescu, Mihai Buculei, Vladimir Predescu, Traian Bradean, Jean AI. Steriadi). Dragostea pentru arta popular romneasc a maestrului i pasiunea de a aduna obiecte autentice au dus n final la alctuirea unei colecii etnografice deosebite, la care au contribuit diferite genuri de art: icoane pe lemn i pe sticl, ceramic, obiecte de cult i scoare care ntregesc ansamblul slii. Spaiile de expunere sunt pe dou nivele, piesele sunt dispuse n cele cinci sli, reprezentnd apte seciuni mari (pictur, grafic, sculptur, art popular romneasc i art decorativ european, oriental i extrem-oriental). Spaiile de expunere comunic ntre ele printr-o scar interioar, pe al crui palier, o serie de exponate introduc vizitatorul n tematica slilor n care va pi. Legtura cu arta universal este discret i ntotdeauna vzut din perspectiva artei romneti. n selecia de stampe japoneze, ntre care se numr artiti celebri ca Hiroshige, Utamaro, Kunisada, se poate observa puterea revelatoare a liniei, ca n cazul graficii romneti. Pictate manual sau imprimate, piesele de porelan de provenien japonez i chinez impresioneaz printr-o cromatic strlucitoare i prin preiozitatea suprafeelor pieselor. Ceramica englezeasc de tip Delft, faiana german, ruseasc i francez nu sunt dect cteva tipuri realizate, prezente n colecie. Pe aceeai linie a obiectelor de "uz casnic" se nscriu i piesele de metal, gravate, ciocnite, poansonate sau perforate. Cu o cromatic armonioas, covoarele orientale de rugciune revin ca o realitate istoric n aproape toate slile muzeului. Marchetate, intarsiate sau pictate, exemplarele de mobilier ofer indicii despre marea ndemnare i sensibilitate a ebenitilor francezi, olandezi sau japonezi. The "Vasile Grigore" collection, on the 25th of May 2004 listed as public property, only in the exhibition room comprises 500 pieces displaying an assembly gradually illustrating almost all the fields of the fine arts. Following the tradition of the collectors K.H.

kinds of art: wooden and glass icons, pottery, religious objects and, last but not least, rugs completing the ensamble of the hall. The link with world art is discrete and always seen through the perspective of Romanian art. The selection of Japanese prints, including famous artists such as Hiroshige, Utamaro, Kunisada, reflects the strong power of lines, like in Romanian graphics. The porcelain pieces, painted by hand or printed, from Japan or China, impress by their bright colours and sophistication of the surfaces of the pieces. The Delft English pottery, the German, Russian or French faience are a few of the types of the collection. The domestic artefacts also include engraved, hammered, stamped or perforated metal pieces. Harmoniously coloured, the Oriental prayer carpets suggest a historical reality in almost all the museum halls. Inlaid, intarsiated or painted, the pieces of furniture reveal the great craftsmanship and sensitivity of French, Dutch or Japanese cabinet-makers. Ideea nfiinrii i-a aparinut profesorului Dimitrie Gusti, dup 10 ani de cercetri i achiziii pe teren. Planurile de amplasament iniiale au fost executate de Victor Ion Popa. Pentru organizarea Muzeului Satului Romnesc (aceasta a fost titulatur iniial a instituiei), edilii Bucuretilor, convini de prof. D. Gusti, au atribuit un teren de 4,5 ha situat ntre os. Kiseleff i lacul Herstru. Sarcina construciei lui a fost ncredinat lui H.H.

to 1875 when, upon Titu Maiorescu's proposal, under the National Antiquities Museum, the first textile art department emerged, with "things made in the countryside: clothes, carpets, cloth, etc.", of which the treasure-collections of the museum have preserved several exhibits to this day. Spiru Haret had the idea of founding such a museum, that was established on the 1st of October 1906 as an autonomous folk art museum: the Museum of Ethnography, National Art, Decorative and Industrial Art located in the building of the former Treasury. The outstanding art historian Alexandru Tzigara-Samurca was appointed director. He conferred a prestigious scientific and cultural status to the institution, and changed its name first to the Museum of Ethnography and National Art, and in 1912 to the Museum of National Art. In 1931 the folk art exhibition was inaugurated. In 1953 it moved to the tirbei Palace building, in Calea Victoriei, where it functioned for 25 years, under the name of the Museum of Folk Art of the Republic, under the leadership of Tancred Bneanu, a remarkable ethnographer. In 1978 it merged with the Village Museum under the name of the Village and Folk Art Museum. In 1990 the museum, bearing the current name, returned to the former premises at the highway. The building, listed as a monument of architecture, sheltering the Romanian Peasant Museum, was built by the architect Nicolae Ghika-Budeti, a brilliant representative of the Romanian architecture school. The museum presents costumes, pottery, furniture, wooden and glass icons, xylographs, religious items, fabrics, carpets, tools, as well as an important collection of foreign folk art, emerged due to the endeavours of the ethnographer Tancred Bneanu. All the collections include about 90,000 items. After 1990 six wooden churches from the Arad and Hunedoara counties were acquired, four of them conserved "in situ", and two, in the museum precinct. The museum manages also the exhibition opened in the precinct of the stone House from Hereti. The museum owns goods listed in the National Cultural Heritage Treasure.

Muzeul a fost nfiinat la 10 iulie 1991 i deschis pentru vizitatori n decembrie 1991, ambiana integrnd istoria a dou monumente succesive n timp - Mnstirea Cotroceni i Palatul Regal. Mnstirea Cotroceni, ctitorit de erban Cantacuzino (1678 - 1688), a fost demolat n 1984. Palatul Cotroceni a fost destinat s reprezinte reedina principilor motenitori ai Regatului Romniei, Ferdinand i Maria. Aici s-au desfurat evenimente politice decisive pentru soarta Romniei: Consiliul de Coroan (14/17 august 1916) care a decis participarea Romniei la primul rzboi mondial; aici au fost primii, n decembrie 1918, delegaii din Transilvania, Bucovina i Basarabia care i-au exprimat adeziunea la Unire; s-a semnat pacea de la Buftea-Bucureti n mai 1918; Consiliul de Coroan din septembrie 1939, au fost primite personaliti romneti i strine. Palatul Cotroceni a fost construit ntre 1893 - 1895 de arh. francez Paul Gottreau. Palatul a fost extins n secolul al XX-lea, n cteva rnduri, cele mai importante refaceri fiind realizate n perioadele 1900 - 1910 i 1915 - 1925; pentru a veni n ntmpinarea cerinelor reginei Maria, cteva interioare au fost schimbate, arhitectul Grigore Cerchez promovnd stilul neo-romnesc. ntre 1971 - 1986, palatul a suportat o ampl aciune de refacere, cnd spaii importante au fost restaurate conform martorilor de epoc, n timp ce alte interioare au fost reamenajate n spiritul reedinelor princiare europene din secolul al XIX-lea. Rezultatul l-a constituit diversitatea stilistic a decoraiei de interior. Cele mai reprezentative spaii astfel configurate sunt: Holul de onoare, Marele salon de recepie, Apartamentul n stil Neorenatere german, Henric al II-lea, Louis al XV-lea, Louis al XVI-lea, Rococo, Empire, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau. Sunt expuse piese de art decorativ brncoveneasc i post-brncoveneasc, n spaii medievale. Menionm: cuhnia, trapeza, chilii, pivniele caselor domneti (secolul al XVII-lea), ancadramentul uii bisericii.

The museum was established on the 10th of July 1991 and opened for visitors in December 1991. It integrates the history of two successive monuments - Cotroceni Monastery and the Royal Palace. Cotroceni Monastery, built by erban Cantacuzino (1678 - 1688), was demolished in 1984. Cotroceni Palace was meant to represent the residence of the Crown Prince and Princess of the Kingdom of Romania, Ferdinand and Mary. Here took place crucial political events of Romania: the Crown Council (14/17 August 1916) that decided Romania's participation in World War I; in December 1918 here were received the delegates from Transylvania, Bukovina and Bessarabia who voiced their willingness to unite with Romania; in May 1918 here was signed the peace of Buftea-Bucharest; the Crown Council took place here in September 1939; Romanian and foreign personalities were received here. Cotroceni Palace was built between 1893 and 1895 by French architect Paul Gottreau. The palace was extended in the 20th century more times - mostly from 1900 to 1910 and from 1915 to 1925; in order to meet the demands of Queen Mary, several interiors were changed by architect Grigore Cerchez, who used the Neo-Romanian style.

1971 and 1986, the palace underwent a vast restoration, as large spaces were restored according to witnesses from the beginning of the century, while other interiors were refurbished following the pattern of the European princely residences from the 19th century. It all resulted in a variety of styles of the interior decoration. The most representative rooms are: the Hall of Honour, the Great Reception Salon, the apartment in a German NeoRenaissance style, as well as the Henry II, Louis Quinze, Louis Seize, Rococo, Empire, Biedermeier and Art Nouveau apartments.

The museum is organized as a true geology manual open both to specialists and for those who know less about geology. It is destined to those who take a look into the interesting world of crystals, coloured or fluorescent minerals, rocks and fossils, wishing they could have a real understanding of the Earth, its composition, origin and history (the oldest rocks date back to 1,900,000,000 years ago). The minerals and fossils described for the first time in Romania, the reconstruction of livestock that populated the Romanian territory in the geological past (reptiles, birds, hominids) next to real size dinosaurs are a few of the visitor attractions. The museum owns goods listed in the National Cultural Heritage Treasure. n anul 2001 Guvernul Romniei a decis nfiinarea Muzeului Naional de Art Contemporan (MNAC) n aripa E4 a Palatului Parlamentului, ce va fi integral renovat. Muzeul a fost constituit prin fuziunea dintre Oficiul Naional pentru Documentare i Expoziii de Art (ODEA) i Departamentul de Art Contemporan, din cadrul Muzeului Naional de Art al Romniei, a crui activitate a ncetat n anul 2001. n octombrie 2004 noul sediu al MNAC a fost deschis publicului n aripa E4 a Palatului Parlamentului. Potrivit declaraiei lui Mihai Oroveanu, directorul muzeului, MNAC opteaz pentru "o formul de expunere novatoare, aceea de "museum in progress", o instituie care s nu se mrgineasc s arhiveze i s gestioneze pasiv i complezent o colecie, ci care s propun proiecte stimulative, s imagineze noi juxtapuneri, noi corespondene, s participe la o aciune de sintez a artelor contemporane, din care s nu lipseasc filmul, muzica, literatura, dansul". In the year 2001 the Romanian Government decided to found the National Museum of Contemporary Art (NMCA) in the wing E4 of the Palace of Parliament, that will be entirely restored. The museum was established following the merger between the National Office for Documentation and Art Exhibitions (NODAE) and the Department of Contemporary Art that belongs to the National Art Museum of Romania, that ceased the activity in the year 2001. According to Mihai Oroveanu's statement, as the manager of the museum, the NMCA chose "a new display formula, that is a museum in progress, an institution that does not confine itself to achieving and managing collections passively and self indulgingly. It is an institution that puts forward challenging projects, figures out new ways of intermingling, and harmonizing, while taking part in an action encompassing the contemporary arts, that should involve film, music, literature and dancing". Sunt expuse 667 hri, gravuri, desene, litografii, precum i o serie de obiecte specifice tematicii muzeului. Exponatele sunt dispuse n cele 16 sli ntr-o suit ce respect latura tiinific mbinat n mod armonios cu cea artistic, cutnd s pun n valoare evoluia istoric a realizrilor cartografice pe ntregul mapamond i, mai ales, a celor care se refer la spaiul geografic al rii noastre. Dintre exponatele cele mai de seam se cuvin menionate hrile realizate de marii geografi ai secolului al XVI-lea dup informaiile provenite de la marii geografi i istorici ai antichitii ca: Strabon, Ptolemeu, Herodot i alii.

The remarkable exhibits include pieces of great value such as maps achieved by the great geographers of the 16th century after the information provided by the great geographers and historians of antiquity: Strabo, Ptolemy, Herodotus and others. The great geographers and creators of the Renaissance, a period when maps were produced on a mathematical basis, include S. Mnster whose Cosmography dominated, by numerous editions, the mapping production from the second half of the 16th century. The great geographers G. Mercator and A. Ortelius, the initiators of scientific mapping, are present by their works next to other outstanding geographers of the age. The maps created by them that regard the Eastern European region play a central role. The few exhibits achieved in recent history illustrate, in their turn, certain historical moments.

Deine bunuri culturale clasate n Tezaurul patrimoniului cultural naional. The idea of organizing a stamps museum is not new. It dates from the last ten-year period of the 19th century, when there were some private tries of organizing this kind of museum. The General Department of Telegraph and Postal Services tried hard to establish a Postal Museum, but this was only achieved around 1891. The new museum was presented to the public at the General Exhibition of 1906, when the well-known architect Grigore Cerchez, general manager of the Post at the time, rebuilt an old postal inn on the Exhibition precincts and presented there various items of postal history and the stamps of the General Department of Telegraph and Postal Services. However, the museum was short-life. In 1958, on the occasion of Romanian Postal Mark centenary, the Minister Council emitted a decision of founding a philately museum, decision that unfortunately was not materialized. It 2004 it was decided to give the title of museum of national importance to the National Philately Museum. The year 2004 marks the rebirth of this museum, by the will, determination, decision and

efforts of the friends of philately and of the Post. The inauguration took place on 1st October 2004, during the U.P.U. Congress in Bucharest. The museum is located in a state-owned building, managed by the National History Museum. The location where the National Philately Museum carries on its activity is allotted free of charge. This is a neoclassical building, erected by the design of architect Al. Savulescu. The Central Post Office was located here until 1970, when refurbishment works started and the National History Museum was moved in the building. The National Philately Museum presents part of Romanias Post treasury in the three exhibition halls filled with philatelic and postal items. George I. Lahovary Hall (named in honour of the Romanian representative to the Congress for the constitution of the UPU at Berna in 1874) is entirely dedicated to the Romanian postal stamp. Within a modern system of display one can admire the renowned first issue of Bull Heads, the stamps of 27 and 54 Parale, and also the beautiful stamps of United Principalities and Cuza issues. Of special interest are also the sheets of lithographiated classical issues "Charles I with whiskers and beard", same of which are unique in the world as there are no other known of similar large format. These sheets are already reference items, mentioned in prestigious philatelic works. The presentation of Romanian issues is continued until 1962 and between 1990 and 2002. One can appreciate that most Romanian stamps are unique being presented (until 1956) in unperforated sheets. Artists drawings are in fact creations, exceptional graphics works, signed often by great artists, consecrated names of Romanian graphics. On the presentation cards of the proofs or trial colour, sometimes, mentions leading to changes in the stamp graphics or colour print are visible, next to signatures and cachets. The imperforated sheets, printed after the accepted essays, have the hand made mention "good for printing" next to the signature and cancellation of those entitled to approve the issue (imprimatur). These sheets, as well philatelic items as period documents, are really useful to the research of the Romanian postal stamps, offering important and interesting information (original printing varieties, like those published recently by Mr. Sergiu Gabureac in Filatelia magazine, as elements regarding the composition of the sheets). The genuine dies used to the printing of different issues are shown in the glass cases of Lahovary Hall. One can admire the famous dies of the first issue Bull Head, and also the unissued value, the lithographic stones (absolutely novel items!) used to the printing of classical lithographic stamps and other different dies of engraved or typographed stamps, dies for frames or of value figure dies and so on. Cezar Librecht Hall (first director of the Post of the United Principalities) dedicated to the history of the Romanian Post, exhibits genuine items, copies and dummies all illustrating aspects of the Post evolution of more than 100 years. Clothes of the ancient carters, bugles and postal clothes, a postal desk, postal carriages, trunks for values, different printings etc. The evolution of the philately is presented in Dimitrie C. Butculescu Hall, witch has the name of the first President of the Romanian Philatelic Society. This is the place where philatelic temporary exhibition are organized. By permanent exhibition the medals got by the Romanian Post to the international or national philatelic exhibition and also different publications and philatelic works are exhibited. A special place is dedicated to Filatelia magazine. The museum owns goods listed in the National Cultural Heritage Treasure.

At one moment, the administration of the local theatre disposed four rooms within the theatre for I. Srbus Museum of the Theatre. In 1976, the same administration turned the four rooms to another destination, so the collector donated his collection to the museum. In 1986, the collection was moved to the deposit neighbouring the "Clio" hall. Between 1990 and 2000, the museum organized eight temporary exhibitions based on the pieces of this collection.

The archaeological site from the Roman period near the village of Jupa has been the most thoroughly excavated in Banat and the best known in the archaeological literature. The overall surface is about 27 hectares. It is known that the ancient locality bore the title of municipium and belonged to the most important cities in the province of Dacia. Tibiscum lay close to the capital of the province Colonia Ulpia Traiana Dacica Sarmizegetusa, and its territory belonged to it. The place where the ancient Tibiscum was raised is known under the name of "Fortress" or "Over the Walls". This complex of ruins includes a camp, a military vicus and the civil settlement, that is the city. C. Mannert identified the ancient ruins preserved close to the locality of Jupa as Tibiscum at the beginning of the 19th century. The first archaeological excavations began in 1875 due to Ortvay Tivadar, on the right bank of the Timi River, uncovering the largest part of the civil settlement. Between 1923 and 1924 Professor G. G. Mateescu, from the University of Cluj, conducted the first systematic excavations at Tibiscum. From 1977, the archaeological area found on the left bank of the Timi River, including the camp and a part of the military vicus, was organized in the Tibiscum Archaeological Reservation. The museum of the site presents archaeological finds from the Roman period.

However, the Romanian Academy and the local authorities took an interest in ancient vestiges only after the Independence War (1877 - 1878) and the integration of Dobrudja in the Romanian state. Remus Opreanu, the first Romanian prefect in Dobrudja, and the school inspector Ion Bnescu gathered vestiges in Constana and from its surroundings and sheltered them in the building of the Prefecture. The small museum fell apart because of a fire in 1882. The rescued monuments were sheltered in the "Pavilion" of the public garden. After many shifts, the National History and Archaeology Museum was completely reorganized in 1977. The museum building was raised in the early 20th century, with a specific Romanian architecture for the local administration. The Constana City Hall gave it to the museum in

Toi au semnat, cu aceast ocazie, n "Cartea de Aur" a Muzeului Regional al Dobrogei, cum s-a numit instituia la vremea respectiv. n timpul primului rzboi mondial, muzeul este distrus n ntregime. Este reorganizat i inaugurat oficial, pentru a doua oar, de aceast dat n locuina personal a directorului colii, la 29 mai 1926, de Regele Ferdinand i Regina Maria. n primii ani ai regimului comunist este desfiinat, piesele arheologice sunt duse la muzeul din Constana, iar coleciile de art, etnografic, geologic, fotografic, sunt mprtiate. Dup 1975 a fost reluat ideea renfiinrii muzeului de la Hrova i pe msur ce au nceput cercetrile, n aezarea neolitic, n anul 1985, n necropolele, aezarea civil ori fortificaiile antice, n anii 1987 - 1989 i mai ales dup 1993, ca urmare a cantitii uriae de materiale arheologice de importan excepional, aceasta a devenit o necesitate imperioas. Pentru reorganizarea muzeului, autoritile locale au pus la dispoziie, n anul 2000, actuala cldire care a fost amenajat. Dup ncheierea lucrrilor, n anul 2005 Ministerul Culturii i Cultelor a avizat funcionarea Muzeului Carsium ca secie a Muzeului de Istorie Naional i Arheologie Constana. La 1 februarie 2006 muzeul este deschis publicului iar la 20 aprilie este inaugurat de Regele Mihai i Regina Ana. Muzeul ilustreaz, prin cele mai reprezentative descoperiri de la Hrova i mprejurimi, dezvoltarea civilizaiei materiale i spirituale din spaiul dunrean, din neolitic pn la nceputul epocii moderne. Sunt expuse piese cu valoare deosebit, unele prezentate n expoziii internaionale sau naionale, tipice culturilor neolitice (Hamangia, Gumelnia), culturii epocii metalelor, dezvoltrii civilizaiei romane, romano-bizantine i medievale la Dunrea de Jos. The museum was established by early 20th century by Professor Vasile Cotovu. The royal family attended and signed in the Golden Book. World War I caused the disorganization of the institution. Vasile Cotovu reorganized it for the second time in 1926 and inaugurated it next to King Ferdinand and Queen Mary. It was dismantled in the first years after World War II. After 1975, the idea of re-establishing the Hrova Museum was vivid again so much more that in 1983 the researches in the Neolithic tell developed here, with exceptional results. Meanwhile, the researches in the ancient cemeteries and at the Carsium fortification led to the discovery of a large amount of archaeological material, some of them unique. In the year 2000 the museum was organised as a department of the Constana Museum of History and Archaeology and moved to the current premises, that was set up until 2005. Carsium Museum illustrates the material and spiritual civilization on the territory of the locality of Hrova, representative for the Danubian space, for the Neolithic (Hamangia, Gumelnia cultures) the metal age; it illustrates aspects of

TULCEA
Institutul de Cercetri Eco-Muzeale Institute for Eco-Museum Researches
Muzeul tulcean a luat natere n anul 1950, prin organizarea Muzeul de tiine ale Naturii. Din anul 1965 a nceput s funcioneze sub denumirea de Muzeul "Delta Dunrii", cu 4 secii: istorie i arheologie, etnografie, tiine ale naturii, art, fiind primul i singurul muzeu tematic din Romnia acceptat la acea vreme, cu denumirea de Muzeul Deltei Dunrii. n timp, muzeul s-a extins prin organizarea altor uniti muzeale. Cea mai important realizare este organizarea n 1975 a Seciei de istorie i arheologie din Parcul "Monumentul Independenei", n interiorul unui prim pavilion, ulterior extins prin construcia celui de-al doilea edificiu. Alte realizri importante se refer la organizarea Muzeului de Art (1972) i a Muzeului de Etnografie i Art Popular (1989). Implicarea instituiei muzeale tulcene n diversificarea unor forme de valorificare a ntregului patrimoniu cultural a dus, n cele din urm, la modificarea structurii organizatorice a vechiului Muzeu al Deltei Dunrii i transformarea lui n Institut de Cercetri Eco-Muzeale. Legiferarea i reorganizarea muzeului tulcean s-au fcut prin deciziile nr. 118, 119/19 martie 1993, Institutul urmnd s-i desfoare activitatea n domeniile: ecologie, etnologie, istoria artelor, istorie i arheologie. n prezent, fiecare obiectiv muzeal al Institutului desfoar activitatea sa proprie prin care ncearc s mbine riguros activitatea tiinific de cercetare, conservare, restaurare, valorificare i mbogire a patrimoniului cultural, cu aciuni care s evidenieze activiti sinergetice cu alte domenii. Noua strategie a instituiei are n vedere faptul c produsul su cultural trebuie dezvoltat ntr-un context de integrare care s implice educaia, turismul, dezvoltarea regional, cooperarea transfrontalier i transnaional, urmrind crearea unor efecte multiplicatoare prin aciuni pluridisciplinare. Tulcea Museum was established in the year 1950 by the foundation of the Natural Sciences Museum. Since 1965 it has been the "Danube Delta" Museum with four departments: history and archaeology, ethnography, natural sciences and art. It is the first and only theme museum in Romania accepted at that time, under the name of Danube Delta Museum. In time the museum has grown due to the emergence of other museum units. The most significant achievement is the 1975 emergence of the History and Archaeology Department in the "Independence Monument" Park, inside an initial pavilion, later extended due to the construction of the second edifice. Other important achievements involve the emergence of the Art Museum (1972) and the Ethnography and Folk Art Museum (1989). The endeavours of the Tulcea Museum institution towards diversifying the forms of valorisation of the entire cultural heritage in the end led to a changed organizational structure of the Old Danube Delta Museum and its turning into an Institute for Eco-Museum Researches. Tulcea Museum was reorganized by the decisions nos. 118, 119/the 19th of March 1993, as the Institute would conduct its activity in the fields: ecology, ethnography, art history, history and archaeology. Currently, each museum of the Institute conducts its own activity trying to rigorously mingle the scientific activity of cultural heritage research, conservation, restoration, valorisation and enriching with actions pointing to synergic domains. The new strategy of the institution considers that its cultural product has to develop in an integration context involving education, tourism, regional development, international cooperation, aiming at creating diverse effects by multidisciplinary actions.

The Art Museum is hosted by a neoclassical building, raised between 1863 and 1865, as an administrative palace of Tulcea Sangeac, called at the time Pasha's Mansion, that underwent changes in time. After Dobrudja reunited with Romania, it became the headquarters of the Tulcea County Prefecture in 1878. On the ground floor there were the County Court of Justice, the quarters of the bailiffs and the Jury Court. Between 1950 and 1970, it functioned as the Tulcea District Council. It became the quarters of the Art Museum on the 23rd of August 1982. The Tulcea Art Museum takes pride in holding a significant heritage that constantly grew over the last ten years, from 4,365 by the end of the year 1991, to 7,015 works currently, so that it owns seven collections, as follows: the modern and contemporary painting collection,

counting 932 works; the modern and contemporary sculpture collection, counting 420 works; icon collection from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, counting 797 works; modern and contemporary graphics collection, counting 4,016 works; engraving plates collection (unique in this country), counting 400 works; the Oriental decorative art collection from the 18th and 20th centuries, counting 311 pieces; the decorative art collection from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, counting 139 pieces.

Motivele ornamentale tipic orientale: "garoafa", "chiparosul", "zambila", "fructul de rodie" etc., completate de firul metalic auriu si argintiu, se combin n compoziii cromatice i decorative de o valoare estetic deosebit. Ali-Gazi-Pashas mosque (late 18th century) belongs to a recently restored mediaeval historical assembly hosting Oriental art collections: copper artefacts, clothes, and decorative fabrics. Panaghia House stands in the close vicinity of Ali-Gazi-Pashas mosque and is built in the architectural style of the Babadag of yore. The Oriental art exhibition organised in Panaghia House presents pieces belonging to the traditional folk art of the Turks and Tartars in Dobrudja, and pieces belonging to the Oriental art made in manufactures, and later, industrially. The folk art of the Turks and Tartars in Dobrudja (fabrics, embroideries, costumes, ornaments, domestic copper vessels and ceremony vessels) reflect its Oriental origins. Certain traits of this art reveal, however, the intermingling with the art of the local population in the Balkan Peninsula and in Dobrudja. The typically Oriental ornamental motifs: the carnation, cypress, hyacinth, pomegranate fruit, etc. completed by the golden and silver thread mingle in colour and decorative compositions of a special aesthetic value. n centrul localitii Cerna, n vecintatea bisericii satului, atrage atenia o locuin de meteugari de la nceputul secolului al XX-lea.

Are o absid semicircular ieind, naos rectangular mprit n trei nave prin stlpi de sine stttori, care sprijineau, n spaiul vertical al edificiului, un acoperi de lemn n dou ape, nvelit cu olane. Nu avea nartex, n schimb avea pilatri angajai n capetele sudice ale navelor laterale, n scopul susinerii unor arcade transversale i care compartimentau spaiul interior al navelor laterale, de o parte i de cealalt a intrrii n nava central, intrare larg situat pe axul absidei. n zona central a absidei, sub pavimentul altarului, se afl o cript martiric monumental, complet ngropat, care adpostete un grup de patru martiri la partea superioar a martirionului - Zotikos, Attalos, Camasis i Philippos, respectiv doi martiri la nivelul inferior, care provin dintr-un mormnt martiric mai vechi. Martirionul de la Niculiel este un monument unic n Europa. Edificiul de protecie creeaz un spaiu interior elegant, aerat i plcut. Galeria perimetral destinat fluxului de vizitare asigur un permanent contact vizual cu monumentul, iar expoziia permanent de obiecte paleocretine, fotografii color i diapozitive completeaz muzeal vizitarea ntregului ansamblu paleocretin. Descoperirea monumentului s-a datorat unor ploi toreniale care, n primvara anului 1971, au provocat apariia unei poriuni din cupola criptei. Fiind amplasat n pant, ntr-o zon locuit i la intersecia unor ci de acces, monumentul a necesitat o cercetare ndelungat, care s-a desfurat n etape: 1971, 1975, 1985, 1994. The museum houses a paleo-Christian basilica from the end of the 4th century, situated above several martyr tombs. It has a projecting semicircular apse, a rectangular naos divided into three naves by individual pillars, that used to support, in the vertical part of the edifice, a wooden ridged roof, covered by gutter tiles. It had no narthex, instead it used to have pilasters fastened at the south ends of the lateral valves, in order to sustain some transversal archways, and compartmentalized the interior space of the lateral naves, on both sides of the entrance to the central nave, a wide entrance situated on the apse axis. In the central zone of the apse, under the altar pavement, there is a monumental martyr crypt, completely

buried, housing a group of four martyrs at the upper part of the martyrion Zotikos, Attalos, Camasis and Philippos, and two martyrs on the lower level, that originate in an earlier martyr tomb. The martyrion at Niculiel is a unique monument in Europe. The protecting edifice creates an elegant, aired and pleasant interior. The perimetral gallery destined to the inflow of visitors ensures a permanent visual contact with the monument, and the permanent exhibition of paleo-Christian artefacts, colour photographs and slides complete the museum collection.The discovery of the monument is due to torrential rain in the spring of 1971 that uncovered a part of the crypt cupola. As it is in a sloping position, in an inhabited area, and at a crossroads, the monument needed to be long studied during the years 1971, 1975, 1985 and 1994.

Dup anul 1989 Farul Mare de la Sulina a fost restaurat de Ministerul Culturii i Cultelor, iar din anul 2003 a intrat n administraia ICEM Tulcea. Cldirea are valoare istoric i se afl pe Lista monumentelor istorice din 2004. Construcia, cu o nlime de 17,34 m, de form tronconic, dispune la parter de dou ncperi mari, amenajate muzeal, spaiul de expunere fiind de 70 mp.

Se remarc piesele de mobilier care au aparinut scriitorului Jean Bart i fotografiile de familie ale acestuia, colecia de arme din secolele XVIII - XX, medaliile, documentele, hrile i fotografiile privind activitatea Comisiunii Europene a Dunrii. ICEM Tulcea has managed the Sulina Lighthouse since 2003, when it turned into a museum. The experts of the Archaeology and History Museum in Tulcea, which governs the museum, have arranged the two rooms on the ground floor. One of them is dedicated to the memory of Jean Bart a personality that at the beginning of the 20th century was at Sulina a sea commissary. The second one is dedicated to the European Danube Commisions - an international organization that transformed the small fishing settlement from the beginning of the 19th century into an important harbour with a flourishing economy. The exhibits of the Sulina Lighthouse Museum belong to the modern and contemporary history collection of the History and Archaeology Museum that belongs to the Eco-Museum Research Institute. One can remark the pieces of furniture that belonged to the writer Jean Bart and his family photographs, the weaponry collection from the 18th - 20th centuries, the medals, documents, maps and photographs relating to the activity of the European Danube Commission. As the name indicates, the Sulina museum was organized in a lighthouse, that was built by the European Danube Commission between 1869 and 1870. The project was designed by M. Engelhardt, a doctor, a collaborator outside the Technical Office of the European Danube Commisions. The project was managed by Sir Charles A. Hartley. Over the years the construction underwent several changes on the outside and inside, which did not affect the original structure. After 1989 the Sulina Great Lighthouse was restored by the Ministry of Culture and Religious Affairs, and in 2003 was taken over by ICEM Tulcea. The building has historic value and was listed in 2004 with the indicative TL II mA06023. The construction is 17.34 m high, in the shape of a truncated cone, has two large rooms on the ground floor, arranged for the museum, and the exhibition space is 70 sq.m. The rooms built around the Lighthouse, at number 7, that functioned as homes for the staff and deposits for the materials necessary for the operation of the lighthouse, are currently used as museum annexes. At the same time the inner courtyard confers a special atmosphere to the museum.

Dac la casele foarte vechi (secolele XVI - XVII) lipsete prispa, n secolul al XVIII-lea aceasta este generalizat, este format dintr-o succesiune de stlpi cioplii i ornamentai, care formeaz frumoase arcade ce dau o not specific. Multe construcii au pe lng valoarea arhitectonic i valoare documentar deosebit din cauza inscripiilor. Porile sunt realizri de excepie n Maramure. Poarta a fost marc social a proprietarului. Preponderent pe stlpii porilor apar "pomul vieii" ca simbol al vieii fr de moarte, nsemne solare i stelare, mrci cretine, dar i arpele, cocoul sau figuri antropomorfe, toate ca mrci ale unei profunde credine ncifrate i pierdute n negura vremurilor. The museum was designed as a specific local village, that evolved over the time from the "scattered" "spread" type to the "gathered" type. The houses and homesteads were grouped according to the main subzones of historical Maramure. Broadly, the museum emerged as a reservation of folk architecture monuments. The plan of earlier houses comprises two or three rooms, but by the end of the 18th century emerged more evolved houses with several well partitioned rooms. The walls of the constructions are of wide thick beams ended in the "blockbau" system. The roofs are gabled. While earlier houses (16th - 17th centuries) lack verandas, in the 18th centuries almost all had one, made of a sequence of carved decorated pillars forming beautiful archways of a specific pattern. Many constructions have not only an architectural value, but also a documentary one due to their inscriptions. The gates are exceptional pieces in Maramure. The gates used to be social tokens of the owners. The prevailing pattern on the pillars is the "life tree" as a symbol of life without death, solar and star designs, Christian emblems, but also the snake, cock or anthropomorphic figures, all of them marking a long lasting deep faith from immemorial times.

Ellie Wiesel s-a nscut n anul 1928 la Sighetul Marmaiei, primii 15 ani petrecndu-i n Romnia. Sighetul Marmaiei are, pe lng amintirile copilriei, i amintiri tragice legate de pierderea familiei sale n timpul deportrilor din perioada horthyst, cnd foarte muli evrei au czut victime acestor evenimente. n anul 1944 Ellie Wiesel mpreun cu ntreaga familie i ceilali evrei din Sighet i Maramure, n numr de peste 38.000, au fost deportai de ctre horthyti i naziti n lagrele morii. Tnrul adolescent va fi marcat toat viaa de crimele i ororile de nenchipuit petrecute n lagrele de la Auschwitz, Birkenau i Buchewald. Cunoscutul romancier, dramaturg, eseist i memorialist Ellie Wiesel a pledat att n trecut, ct i n prezent pentru pace. n prezent Ellie Wiesel, laureat al Premiului Nobel pentru Pace, este titular la catedra de tiine Umaniste a Universitii din Boston, 55 de universiti din ntreaga lume decernndu-i titlul de "Doctor Honoris Causa", printre care i Universitatea Yale. Prima sa carte de memorii, "La Nuit", apare n 1958, i cuprinde experienele sale n lagrele de concentrare germane. Din acel an, sub semntura sa au aprut aproape 40 de cri, toate inspirate din suferinele evreilor n timpul celui de-al doilea rzboi mondial. Din lucrrile sale transpare interesul profund fa de situaia evreilor i a altor grupuri, care au suferit persecuii i umiline din cauza religiei, rasei i a originii naionale. Ellie Wiesel was born in 1928 at Sighetul Marmaiei, and spent his first 15 years in Romania. Sighetul Marmaiei reminds him of childhood memories, but also tragic memories relating to the loss of his family during the deportations from Horty's period, when many Jews fell victims of these events. In 1944, Ellie Wiesel together with the whole family and the other Jews from Sighet and Maramure, counting over 38,000, were deported by the Horthys and the Nazis in death camps. The young adolescent would be marked for life by the unimaginable crimes and horrors that occurred in the Auschwitz, Birkenau and Buchenwald camps. The wellknown novelist, playwright, essayist and memoirist Ellie Wiesel has always pleaded for peace. Currently, Ellie Wiesel, a winner of the Nobel Prize for Peace, is a titular of the Humanities chair of Boston University, while 55 universities worldwide awarded him the title of "Doctor Honoris Causa", including Yale University. His first book of memoirs, "La Nuit", issued in 1958, accounts his experiences in German concentration camps. From that year onwards, he signed almost 40 books, all of them inspired by the ordeal of the Jews during World War II. His works reveal his profound empathy with the condition of the Jews and of other ethnic groups, who suffered persecutions and humiliations because of their religion, race or national origin. Ansamblul muzeal evoc personalitatea lui Vasile Lucaciu, supranumit "Leul de la ieti" (1852 - 1922), cunoscut lupttor pentru drepturile romnilor din Transilvania. Vasile Lucaciu i familia sa au locuit aici aproape 30 ani. Ansamblul este alctuit din: casa parohial (secolul al XVIII-lea), coala (1905), Biserica Sfintei Uniri a Tuturor Romnilor (1890), cu mormntul lui Vasile Lucaciu, Locul de adunare, Izvorul Maicii Romnilor de la Siseti, coloanele de piatr pentru statuile lui Traian i Decebal, altarul vechii biserici de lemn, biblioteca familiei Lucaciu. The museum assembly includes the vicarage (18th century), the school (1905), the Church of the Sacred Union of All Romanians (1890), with Vasile Lucaciu's tomb, the Gathering Place, the Romanians' Mother Spring of ieti, the stone columns for Trajan's and Decebalus' statues, the altar of the old wooden church, the library of the Lucaciu family - all of them bearing witness to the strong personality of Vasile Lucaciu - "The Lion of ieti" (1852 - 1922), a tribune of the Great Union.

Cldirea actual a Muzeului a aparinut unei familii de etnici germani, n 2003 a fost amenajat (i s-a mai ridicat un nivel). La parter dispune de o sal de istorie n suprafa de 40 mp. La etaj exist o sal de 70 mp pentru expoziia de etnografie, una de 20 mp pentru obiectele de cult, precum i o teras de 30 mp pentru expunerea obiectelor muzeale mai mari. nceputurile Muzeului din Vieu de Sus se leag de constituirea primelor colecii de obiecte etnografice i istorice, n jurul anului 1970 la colile generale i la liceul din localitate, aici deschizndu-se i un mic muzeu ntr-o sal de clas. Avnd la baz aceste colecii, s-a format un muzeu al oraului sub tutela Muzeului din Sighetu Marmaiei care, din pcate, n-a supravieuit n condiiile crizei comuniste din anii 1985 - 1989. Cldirea s-a degradat i a fost nstrinat, iar piesele, n marea majoritate, s-au pierdut, ceea ce a mai rmas s-a depozitat n condiii improprii. Muzeul a fost redeschis n 2001, a fost renovat i reetajat. A urmat refacerea fondului muzeistic prin restaurarea obiectelor ce au mai rmas din vechiul muzeu, s-au fcut noi achiziii, s-au primit donaii, astfel la 1 Decembrie 2003 Muzeul de Istorie i Etnografie Vieu de Sus a fost deschis spre vizitare publicului larg. Secia de istorie este gzduit ntr-o sal ce conine: obiecte i ilustraii (reproduceri de documente, fotografii), dispuse n cinci vitrine i pe nou panouri de sticl, s-a nfiat o sintez a istoriei locale. Secia de etnografie este gzduit n dou sli: n prima, sunt ilustrate, prin poze vechi i obiecte de lemn, principalele ocupaii ale locuitorilor: agricultura, pstoritul, lucrul la pdure, prelucrarea cnepii i a lnii, arta popular i ceramica, de asemenea, ntr-o vitrin nchis, sunt prezentate elementele portului popular ale etniilor ce au convieuit n aceast zon, iar n sala a doua sunt prezentate elemente ale vieii culturale i religioase a locuitorilor zonei. The present building of the Museum belonged to a German family. It turned into a museum in 2003 by adding a new storey to it. On the ground floor there is a 40 sq.m. room dedicated to the History Department, offices and an exhibition room of 30 sq.m., as well as a storage room for the objects of the Museum. On the first floor there is a 70 sq.m. room dedicated to the Ethnography Department, a 20 sq.m. room for cult objects, a 20 sq.m. restoration laboratory, a 10 sq.m. office and a toilet, as well as a 30 sq.m. terrace for bigger objects on display. The beginnings of the Museum of Vieu de Sus are related to the first collections of ethnographic objects, around the year 1970, in the local general schools and high school, where a small museum was opened in a classroom. Starting from this collection, a small museum was opened under the protection of the Museum of Sighetu Marmaiei which did not survive the harsh communist period of 1985-1989. The building becomes a relict and it was eventually given and most of the exhibits were lost. After the revolution the local community succeeded in re-opening the museum in 2001 and the building was renovated. The next step was completing the collections, restoring the old objects and buying or receiving new ones as donations. On the 1st December 2003 the Museum of History and Ethnography of Vieu de Sus was opened for the public. The History Department is hosted by one room where objects and pictures (reproductions of documents and photographs) are displayed in five show cases and nine glass panels presenting the local history. The Ethnography Department hosted in two rooms In the first room the occupations of the local people are illustrated with old pictures and wooden objects: agriculture, shepherding, work in the woods, processing hemp and wool, popular art and pottery. In a closed show case are presented elements of popular clothing of different peoples that have lived here.

Biserica mnstirii Galata este ctitorit de domnitorul Petru chiopu, fiind ridicat ntre anii 1582 - 1584. Biserica a fost construit din crmid i piatr cioplit, sprijinit pe contraforturi i a fost consolidat n mai multe rnduri, ceea ce a fcut ca zidirea s reziste la cutremure i incendii. Zidul de piatr ce nconjoar Galata s-a construit ncepnd din anul 1735, iar partea superioar a turnului clopotni s-a adugat n vremea lui Mihail Sturdza. Mnstirea Galata se numr printre puinele monumente de art medieval care, n pofida timpul scurs i a interveniei restauratorilor, i-a pstrat n mare parte autenticitatea i unitatea compoziional i stilistic. Pictura original a bisericii nu se mai pstreaz, fiind distrus, odat cu catapeteasma i alte obiecte bisericeti, de incendiul din 1762. n prezent se mai pstreaz doar cteva fragmente de fresc, unul din cele mai importante fiind tabloul votiv. Lucrrile de restaurare din anii '70 au scos la iveal morminte domneti (Despina i Vlad, doi copii ai lui Petru chiopul i Maria Amirali - soia voievodului - decedat n 1588). Este pe Lista monumentelor istorice din 2004. Prince Petru chiopu of Moldavia built the church of the monastery between 1582 and 1584. The church was built of bricks and cut stone, supported on abutments, consolidated several times, which helped the construction survive earthquakes and fires. The stone wall surrounding Galata started to be raised in 1735. The upper part of the bell tower was added during the time of Michael Sturza. Galata Monastery counts among the few monuments of mediaeval art that, in spite of the time elapsed and the restorers' intervention, has preserved

most of its authenticity and compositional and stylistic unity. The original painting of the church has not been preserved, as it was damaged, together with the catapetasma and other church items, by the 1762 fire. Only a few fragments from a fresco have survived, one of the most important being a votive picture. The restoration works from the '70s uncovered princely tombs (Despina and Vlad, two children of Petru chiopul and Maria Amirali - the prince's wife - deceased in 1588).

The "in situ" construction protecting a princely tomb from the 4th - 3rd centuries BC shelters also local history elements, as well as windows with original archaeological finds dating to the Cucuteni culture period. Located in the north end of the village of Cucuteni, on Gosan Hill, in the location of "La pietrrie", the Daco-Getic tumular cemetery dates to the 4th century BC and has eight tumuli (burial mounds). Three of them were systematically excavated by archaeologists, the largest of them (mound no. 2, 3.30 m high and 35 m in diameter) being protected by a special construction raised in 1984, upon the centenary of the discovery of the Cucuteni culture. The mound shelters a kind of stone precinct, round in shape, having an access path in the south-east part. Within the precinct we uncovered four cremation tombs, a main one for which the mound was raised and three secondary ones. The construction of the edifice (without supporting pillars) sheltering the mound makes it possible to view the cut tumulus fully.

It was raised during the time of Peter I Muat. The first documentary mention dates to 1395. During the time of Alexander Lpuneanu (1564 - 1568) the fortress was partially destroyed. In the year 1691, the fortress was defended by a small group of frontier guards against the siege of the Polish army headed by John Sobietski. The works conducted during the time of Stephen the Great strengthened it, due to the defence ditch flanked by strong bastions, the very high walls, the access paths, which made it impossible to transport the battle "machine" for destroying the walls, Neam Fortress became one of the strongest fortresses in Moldavia. In the year 1866 Neam Fortress was listed as a historic monument. The wall reconsolidation works, conducted between 1968 and 1972, under the leadership of the well known architect tefan Bal, were designed to conserve and maintain the monument as it had been, without reconstructing the vanished parts. From lack of reliable information, they executed only some terraces necessary for a safe visitation of this historic site. n urma spturilor arheologice desfurate, cu intermitene, din 1939 pn n 1963, s-a organizat primul nucleu expoziional. n 1957 a avut loc deschiderea oficial a muzeului, ntro cldire de lng parcul oraului. n 1968 muzeul a fost reorganizat n cldirea fostului Sfat popular raional, n 1977 a fost reorganizat i transferat n actuala cldire, iar n 1986 a avut loc o nou reorganizare, devenind Muzeul de Istorie i Etnografie Trgu Neam.

Situat n partea sudic a Masivului Piatra-Craiului, zona Rucr - Dmbovicioara se caracterizeaz printr-un relief carstic variat, spectaculos. Lung de peste 250 m, aceast peter are aspectul unei galerii puin ramificate, traseul su fiind puin ascendent; ea poate fi strbtut uor, avnd plafonul mai nalt dect statura omului (circa 2 m). Interiorul ofer condiii optime de vizitare. Fauna caracteristic unor asemenea forme carstice se arat relativ srac, pn acum nu au fost semnalate specii cavernicole, n schimb s-au gsit resturile fosile ale ursului de peter (Ursus spelaeus). Localnicii o cunoteau nainte de 1579, an n care Dmbovicioara este atestat documentar, de pe vremea lui Mihnea Turcitul. Mai trziu, n 1767, J. Fridvalsky o citeaz n lucrarea tiinific "Mineralogia Magni Principatus Transilvaniae", ea constituind prima form carstic de acest fel din Muntenia, pomenit ntr-un studiu de specialitate. Situated in the south part of Piatra-Craiului Massif, the Rucr Dmbovicioara area is characterized by a varied spectacular carstic relief. This cave, over 250 m long, looks like a slightly branched gallery, with a slightly upward track; it can be crossed easily, as its ceiling is higher than mans stature (about two meters). The interior offers excellent conditions for visitation. The fauna characteristic of such carstic forms proves to be scarce, as until now no cave species were found. Instead, the fossil remains of the cave bear (Ursus spelaeus) were found. Locals had known it before 1579, the year when Dmbovicioara was documented, during the time of Mihnea Turcitul. Later, in 1767, J. Fridvalsky cites it in the scientific work Mineralogia magni Principatus Transilvaniae, as it constitutes the first carstic form of this kind in Muntenia, mentioned in a relevant study. Sunt expuse obiecte de art din perioada medieval. The exhibition presents fine arts objects from the mediaeval period.

He graduated brilliantly from the Buzu Theological Seminar in 1945, and in 1949 he became a theology graduate. In 1975, he obtained the title of doctor, a month before his death. He boosted monastery life in Transylvania, as there religion was not flourishing like in Muntenia and Moldova. Father Diometie's life is closely linked to the Rme Monastery community (in 1959 he was appointed confessor-priest). He was a remarkable theologian, confessor priest, endowed with excellent household abilities. The museum was established by the brothers of Father Dometie in 2001. The building was Father Dometie's native home. It should be mentioned that only two rooms host the collections, as the exhibition space is about 25 sq.m. The exhibits include family photographs of the Father's, diploma copies, books on his life, a priestly garb, icons, and craftsman's items.

In 1891 Basil Iorgulescu demanded from the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Public Education the permission to build in Buzu a collection of archaeological and historical pieces, that had been gathered by him during more than 10 years of searches in the county. Consequently, in 1895 the first public collection of archaeological, anthropological and historical pieces emerged in Buzu, exhibited in one of the halls of the "Bogdan Petriceicu Hasdeu" High School. We may consider that moment as the birth date of the first museum of Buzu. The first permanent museum exhibition (located in 145 Unirii Street) dates from 1955, when the heritage was made up of pieces taken over by the school collections and the materials coming from the archaeological excavations at Srata Monteoru and Aldeni. In February 1968, the town museum became a county museum. From 1971 new themes were elaborated, based especially on the archaeology and history museum heritage. Simultaneously, the first museum storerooms were organized, according to scientific criteria.

Dumitru Berciu din anii '50 s-a nfiinat Muzeul Raional Giurgiu, n cadrul Regiunii Bucureti, pornit de un grup de entuziati. Muzeul a nceput cu o colecie de tiinele naturii, apoi a cptat un profil mixt, adugndu-se colecii de art i arheologie. Dup 1968, odat cu reorganizarea administrativ, a devenit muzeu judeean pentru Ilfov. Dup 1990 a revenit la vechea denumire, ca muzeu judeean. Cldirea este monument istoric, sediul fostei Prefecturi de Vlaca. Un prim corp dateaz din secolul al XIX-lea (1877 - 1878), iar n 1903 se mrete i se modernizeaz. Muzeul deine colecii de istorie i arheologie (material litic din paleolitic, ceramic i idoli din neolitic din epoca bronzului i a fierului, unelte, ceramic, podoabe), monede (13 tezaure monetare, o colecie alctuit din 2.500 de piese din aur, argint i metal comun), arme, documente din evul mediu i din epoca modern, etnografie.

Legally it was established in 1934, but it lacked a place of its own.

In the '50s a group of enthusiasts, founded the County Museum of Giurgiu, starting from the excavations of Professor Dumitru Berciu. The museum first had a natural sciences collection, and later archaeology and art ones. After 1968, following the administrative reorganization, it turned into a county museum for the county of Ilfov. After 1990, it resumed the old name, as an independent county museum. The building is a historic monument, the former premises of the Vlaca Prefecture. The first body dates from the 19th century (1777 1778); in 1903 it was enlarged and modernized. It conserves and exhibits pieces of history; archaeology: lithic pieces from the Palaeolithic, pottery and idols from the Neolithic, the Bronze Age and the Iron Age, tools, pottery, ornaments, coins, weapons, documents from the Middle Ages and the Modern Age; ethnography items.

Other three halls illustrate mediaeval history: the artillery missiles collection of Giurgiu fortress, sgrafitto pottery. The modern history halls present the period from 1821 to Alexandru Ioan Cuza: marble coats of arms on the frontispiece of certain buildings, map collection, including the design of the Giurgiu Fortress of 1790, worked out by the Austrians, a recent acquisition; the one hundred year history of the Giurgiu shipyard; collection of over 19,000 periodicals: the complete collections of "Resboiul", "Fundaiile Regale", "Viaa Romneasc", "Flacra", "Furnica" etc., paintings (Sava Henia, Vermont, Corneliu Baba, Basarab, Theo Sion, tiubei etc.), sculptures

dinspre lac, se afl cel mai rafinat element de arhitectur al palatului: splendida "loggia" de inspiraie veneian, cu trei arcade. Azi apare ncadrat de dou foioare, adugate n timpul renovrii din perioada 1860 - 1880, remarcndu-se prin coloanele lor cu capiteluri sculptate n piatr. Foiorul de pe latura de rsrit a palatului este de asemenea sprijinit pe opt coloane de piatr, avnd o balustrad bogat decorat. Bolta foiorului fusese acoperit cu pictur mural cu motive geometrice i vegetale, din care se mai pstreaz cteva fragmente. La etaj - probabil n sala sptriei - exista o mare fresc ce istorisea, n panouri de cte doi metri, cltoria domnitorului la Adrianopol, n 1703, i ntlnirea lui cu sultanul. Fragmente din aceast fresc se mai pstrau nc la jumtatea secolului al XIX-lea, dar majoritatea picturilor, stucaturilor i decoraiilor interioare au fost distruse de turci n 1775. Incrustaiile bogate reunesc elemente stilistice caracteristice att renaterii ct i barocului. Domeniul Mogooaia cuprinde azi un parc englezesc, cu grdini n stil italian, o curte n care se afla palatul, cuhnia, gheria, turnul porii (ante 1702), casa de oaspei (secolul al XVII-lea, refaceri n 1927 - 1936), iar n exteriorul ei serele "N. Bibescu" (1890), paraclisul "Sf. Gheorghe" (1688), i capela Gheorghe Bibescu (secolul al XIX-lea). Palatul adpostete donaia Liana i Dan Nasta, o colecie de art comparat (circa 300 de piese), n slile parterului i n anexe fiind prezentate anual circa 12 expoziii temporare, tematice sau de art contemporan. n casa de oaspei funcioneaz un centru de conferine i rezidene. The centre manages the Brancovan palaces of Mogooaia and Potlogi (1698, the courtyard 1681 - 1700). The Brancovan Palace of Mogooaia was first documented on the 24th of April 1698. The construction was completed on the 20 September 1702 (as the inscription above the main door reads). Stephen, son of Prince Constantine Brancovan lived in the palace. Set by the lakeside, in a rectangular courtyard surrounded by strong walls, the palace has a rectangular, regular plan, having three storeys: basement (cellar), ground floor and upper floor. The cellar is remarkable due to its sizes and solidness. A central pillar divides the space into four rooms, each covered by a cupola with pendants. The ground floor comprises eight rooms for the prince's servants, while the entire upper floor used to be inhabited by the princely family. At the upper storey, on the faade looking out the lake, there is the most refined architectural element of the palace: the magnificent loggia, Venetian in style, with three arches. Nowadays it is framed by two turrets, added during the restoration from 1860 - 1880, that can be remarked due to their columns with capitals carved in stone. In addition, the turret on the east side of the palace stands on eight stone columns, with a richly decorated balustrade. The vault of the turret had been covered with mural painting with geometric and floral motifs, of which a few fragments are extant. On the upper floor, probably in the High Spatharus hall, there is a large fresco depicting, on two meter panels each, the travel of the prince to Adrianopolis, in 1703, and his encounter with the sultan. Fragments from this fresco were still extant by the middle of the 19th century, but most paintings, stuccos and interior decorations were destroyed by the Turks in 1775. The rich inlaid work mingls stylistic elements characteristic both of the Renaissance and the Baroque. Nowadays Mogooaia estate comprises an English park, with Italian style gardens, a courtyard where there are the palace, kitchen, ice house, gate tower (before 1702), the guest house (the 17th century, 1927 - 1936 restorations), and outside it "N. Bibescu" greenhouses (1890), "St. George" Chapel (1688), and Gheorghe Bibescu Chapel (the 19th century). The palace shelters the Liana and Dan Nasta donation, a comparative art collection (about 300 pieces). The ground floor halls and in the annexes annually present about 12 temporary, theme or contemporary art exhibitions. The guest house hosts a conference room and residences.
