About Romanian Peasant Museum Centenary

One hundred years ago, the Museum of Ethnography, National Art, Decorative and Industrial Art was founded in Bucharest, nowadays the Romanian Peasant Museum. Now, on the anniversary of a new century of existence of the museum, Romfilatelia, the company specialized in editing and trading Romanian postage stamps, introduces into circulation the philatelic issue Romanian Peasant Museum Centenary.

The Romanian Peasant Museum is not just a museum; it is not that type of museum you only visit once in your life and then pass on to another. This museum was created so that, every time we want to return to origins, we could visit its rooms full of treasure collections from the patrimony of the peasant art and civilization. With its more than 100,000 items, including apparel collections, pottery, ornaments, furniture, icons on wood and glass, xylographs, religious objects, fabrics, carpets, tools, but also an important collection of foreign popular art, due to the way the museum space was conceived and due to the organization of more than 60 exhibitions of great cultural resonance on all the meridians of the world, the Romanian Peasant Museum decisively contributed to the general development of the theory and practice of ethnographic exhibition.
