Reestablished on February 5th 1990, the Romanian Peasant Museum is the continuator of a long museological tradition. In 1906 the first autonomous museum for peasant art was established. Lucky circumstances brought the art historian Alexandru Tzigara-Samurcaş as its first director. He renamed the institution the Ethnography and National Art Museum and from 1912 on, the National Art Museum. During the 40 years of Tzigara Samurcaş’ leadership the museum was in the avant-garde of European museology.

The so-called “liberation” of 1944 led to the “liberation” of the museum from its own home and its replacement with the Lenin-Stalin Museum.The National Art Museum moved, as a tenant, in Ştirbei Palace on Calea Victoriei, for 25 years and under a new name: the Popular Art Museum of the Romanian Popular/Socialist Republic. During this period, the museographers were forced to “forget” exhibiting some valuable collection pieces, especially the religious ones. However, they succeeded in increasing the heritage of the museum with three times as much objects of peasant art.

In 1978, the Popular Art Museum and the Village Museum are united in one institution. The unification mainly meant that most of collections of the Popular Art museum remained hidden in a long and unhealthy sleep until 1990 when the museum was reestablished and brought back to its home on Kiseleff no.3.

Citește românește!




Ministerul Culturii, în calitate de inițiator, cu sprijinul eMAG, al Uniunii Scriitorilor din România şi al Asociației Editorilor din România, a lansat o campanie de promovare a cărților românești, numită „Citește românește". Scopul proiectului este de a promova cărțile autorilor români, alături de a realiza o comunicare mai bună între autorii români și cititorii acestora. Concret, pe platforma eMAG vor fi disponibile peste 2100 de titluri provenind de la peste 1100 de autori, din domenii variate, de la cărți de ficțiune, istorie sau economie, până la cărți pentru copii.


Totodată, proiectul își dorește să crească consumul de carte, în general şi să acopere golul lăsat în perioada pandemiei de lipsa accesului în marile lanţuri de librării şi a organizării târgurilor de carte.
