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.

De-a Balaurul




Avem agendă cu balauri. Și cu un castel păzit cu strășnicie de un dragon, care poate fi îmblânzit doar cu idei bune și cu povești nescrise încă. Despre prinți, prințese, regi sau mincinoși, închipuiți de copiii care au vizitat Atelierul de Creativitate de-a lungul vremii.

Povestea o scrii tu, după bunul plac, pe cele 49 de file goale, dar păstrând firul narativ pregătit de Balaurul cel cu șapte capete. Ești pregătit să-l înfrunți?

Agenda se găsește la Galeria de Artă Țărănească a Muzeului Țăranului Român (deschisă de marți până duminică, între orele 10.00 - 18.00) și costă 33 de lei.
