Treasures and other valuable objects in a unique exhibition of the Romanian museum community


The National Network of Romanian Museums, in partnership with the National Museum of the Romanian Peasant, proposes to the general public, the community of cultural and creative industries, the political and administrative environment a unique exhibition on the value of cultural heritage and museum collections for society. The exhibition “The Museum for you!” will take place from November 9 to December 31, 2022, at the Tancred Bănățeanu Hall of the National Museum of the Romanian Peasant, and is configured around a curatorial concept that relates, by analogy with the miracle of life and nature, the stories of dozens of pieces of treasure or heritage from the collections of several museums across the country, in a visual show that cannot be missed.


The intention of this exhibition is to build a lasting relationship with the political, administrative, and all kinds of audiences, offering them unique and memorable experiences of knowledge and interaction with museum collections in order to understand their economic, social, cultural and educational values. What you will see and appreciate was the result of an impressive collaborative effort involving the participation of 26 museums of different types and fields: ASTRA National Museum Complex – Sibiu, Moldova National Museum Complex Iasi, National Museum of the Romanian Peasant, Zalău County Museum of History and Art, Casa Mureșenilor Museum – Brasov, The Ethnographic Museum of Transylvania – Cluj-Napoca, ICEM Tulcea – Institute of Eco-Museum Research, Museum of Mountain Banat -Reșița, Museum of Dacian and Roman Civilization – Deva, The Art Museum- Brasov, Museum of History – Turda, Vrancea County Museum, Golești Museum, Museum of the Lower Danube – Calarasi, Buzău County Museum, Maramureș County Museum of Ethnography and Folk Art, Mureș County Museum, Teleorman County Museum, National Museum of Geology, Maramureșan Museum – Sighetul-Marmației, The National Museum of Agriculture Slobozia, National Museum of Maps and Old Books, National Museum of Romanian Literature – Bucharest, George Enescu National Museum, Baia-Mare Art Museum and “Curtea Domnească” National Museum Ensemble – Târgoviște.


It is the first “blockbuster” curatorial approach in Romania, born out of the need for museums to be reconsidered by administrative and political authorities and seen as institutions that can substantially change the economic and social dynamics of a community.

This exhibition project is part of the “Museums Meet Museums” cultural brand of the National Network of Romanian Museums and was implemented with the financial support of the National Cultural Fund Administration and the Dr. Gheorghe Telea-Bologa Memorial Centre Association in Sibiu.

The interior architecture project was carried out by Studio Zeppelin.
