Museum Night - 2020 edition

Press release


The year 2020 has proved to be difficult in many ways. Buzau County Museum was forced to give up most of the actions that the public had already become accustomed to. However, we managed to offer our visitors the most diverse cultural and educational experiences, experiences that had in the center the cultural heritage.

A major event of the European museum world, so long awaited by the public but also by us, every year, is Museum Night. The international organizer, France, even though it is facing serious problems caused by the second wave of the pandemic, has decided not to cancel the event. As a member of the National Network of Museums in Romania, the Buzău County Museum does not want to draw the curtain over this moment. Therefore, given the local, national and international epidemiological situation and the measures taken by the authorities, out of respect for the cultural heritage we manage, out of respect for the museum institution and out of respect for the public, we will be here in on the night of November 14, 2020 to mark the moment. The exhibition halls will be open, the audio and video equipment will work as if nothing had happened, the souvenir shop will be open, but visiting will not be allowed. We will meet online from inside the museum (headquarters and external collections) starting at 19.00 on the museum's facebook account. Until then, we are preparing a photo-video montage of the editions from the past years.

Buzau County Museum

Buzau County Museum is the main museum institution in Buzau County. Its foundations were laid by Basil Iorgulescu and the development of the collections led to several stages of expansion. The current headquarters is the third. From 1977 until now it is housed in the building of the former Girls' School. The building, built between 1931 and 1937, is included in the list of historical monuments, being one of the most imposing buildings in the city.

The permanent exhibitions were opened here in 1980-1981, being subsequently modified and updated in 1986, 1990, 1999-2001, 2004, 2015-2017. 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.

Under the auspices of the institution, a series of books were published ("Mousaios Library"), 2 annual scientific bulletins ("Mousaios" and "Annals of the Buzău”), Catalogs and monographs, fruit of the scientific research activity carried out within the museum institution.
