Organized close to the Throne Citadel of Suceava, the BucovinaVillageMuseum exhibits the folk art architectonic heritage of the UpperLand. The youngest of the open-air museums in Romania, it was “born” in the 8th decade of last century, when the Bucovinan village had various monuments of folk architecture, and took shape after the 1990s, when new households and technical folk installations were transferred, rebuilt and open to the visitors.

Apart from the essential role of preserving, restoring and exhibiting the ethnographic cultural heritage, the Bucovina Village Museum has become prominent in the national cultural landscape through the organization of national and local cultural events – presentation of the area’s customs and traditions, organization of folk handicraftsmen fairs for the promotion of genuine folk creations, camps for students – therefore, the museum became a polarizing center for Suceava’s cultural life.
