Ethnographic Museum

The Ethnographic Museum of Botosani owns a collection that holds a privileged place in the county museum heritage, being the souldof the rural civilization. The first acquisitions for an ethnographic museum started in 1957-1958. Until 1983, 773 exhibits were collected, and in 2008 the inventory held 3428 exhibits. Their value is given by their age, some of them being dated from 1819, 1826, 1853, 1878, 1903, 1904 – religious objects, pieces of furniture, fabrics, ceramics) and by their decorating patterns that include colours specific to the area. The Ethnography Museum was reopened at the end of 2012, in a new location, Ventura House.
