The Tulcea Ethnography and Folk Art Museum

Muzeul de Etnografie si Arta Populara

The quarters of the Ethnography and FolkArt Museum (the former headquarters of the National Bank of Romania – Tulcea Branch) is one of Tulcea’s emblematic edifices, and is, along with other constructions, a valuable example of architecture.

The construction is based on a design developed in 1924 and was built during the interwar period (1924-1927); consequently, at the end of an age when the national movement manifested in Romanian architecture.

Through its great diversity of the collections, the heritage of the Ethnography and FolkArt Museum reflects a unique cultural model generated by the ethnical cohabitation of Romanians and other populations. The 8000 objects make up an inestimable decodable ethnographic capital in the folk art and costumes, ethnography and photo-document collections. The collection of the museum: towels, metal pots, carpets, the Aromanian (Macedo-Romanian) collection. The museum objectives subordinated to the museum are: the EnisalaVillageMuseum, the BabadagOrientalArt Museum, the “Panait Cerna” Memorial House
