"NeoNlitic has become a statement event. Each museum, art gallery, cultural consumption space that hosts the NeoNlitic exhibition, transposes the exhibited works into new forms of signage, thus giving them new identities. The creations are able to find their rightful place in every space and to present to the public the contemporary interpretations of Neolithic symbols. This time, the Buzău County Museum will host NeoNlitic, and thus the public will have access both to the artifact exhibits in the museum's permanent archeology exhibition and to contemporary interpretations of archaic cultural products made by national and international NeoNlitic artists. ", Says the curator.

The exhibition is curated by Mihaela Ion, cultural manager & curator with over 12 years of experience in the field of international creative and cultural industries and a doctorate in art history, founder of Atelierul Magazine and White Night of product creators and designers, two of the the most important Romanian projects destined to promote the creative and cultural communities in Romania.

The newest project was implemented after the complete restoration of the building (carried out in the period 2010-2015, based on the financing of 36,906,590 lei / 8,201,464 Euros offered through the Regional Operational Program 2007-2013).

In the 1980s and 1990s, the museum's collections became substantially richer as a result of archaeological research, acquisitions, and donations. In addition to the consistent collections of history and archeology, the museum's fund has grown steadily, enriching itself with valuable goods ethnographical, artist, numismatics and in the field of mineralogy and al natural sciences.
