Very interesting museum housing a wide array of 19th century glass painted icons as well as a beautiful selection of 18th and 19th century wooden icons. You also get to see a whole host of traditional regional costumes that would have been worn in different parts of the country. You will also see some fine examples of pottery and cotton... More

I`ve been to a lot of folk museums,and frankly i didint have high expectations of this rather concealed building ,located near the Lupa Capitolina. I went in and i was amazed. There were so many traditional costumes,each with their original stories. It was amazing.

I know we went here on our sightseeing trip (I photographed the building, which is quite attractive), but whilst I have an unusual capacity for remembering places such as this, I only have the vaguest recall of the content. I think we were in and out in not much more than 10 minutes!

A small museum in a very beautiful classic Romanian architecture style building. It is nicely located in old Constanta. It is a quiet and cozy museum.

I have been going to this museum since childhood. First out of obligation, be it parents or teachers; someone would always drag you there. :) It always keeps surprising me somehow with the richness of details of an icon or that of some traditional outfit. See for yourself and maybe you'll end up buying a traditional outfit.

A display of decorative household items and an amazing collection traditional costumes from different parts of Romania. Lots of elaborate weaving and embroidery. Guys were not as fascinated as the women, who were mostly ecstatic.
