The Romanian Peasant Museum’s building is placed in Victoriei Square in Bucharest, next to the Natural Science Museum “Grigore Antipa” and the Geology Museum. The construction of the building, including its design was assigned to architect N. Ghika-Budesti, leading member of the autochthonous school of architecture. According to the museographic view of the ethnographer and director Alexandru Tzigara-Samurcas, he was supposed to raise a “palace of autochthonous art” inspired by typical monastery interiors.

In 1941, after 29 years and many interruptions, the building, in its current shape is ready. Representative for the neo-Romanian style, inspired by traditional architecture, especially the brancovenesc style, the building is remarkable by its composition using mainly floral and zoomorphic decorations. The visible red bricklayer, the big windows under arches, the columns of the logia, the elegant silhouette of the main tower reminding of the bell towers in old monasteries make the building a true palace of art.

In the 60s a new wing of offices and auxiliary rooms is added in total discordance with the style conceived by Ghika-Budesti. A huge mosaic, characteristic for the quasi-proletkult period in Romanian Communism, individualizes the new wing.

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.
