The National Village Museum (Muzeul Satului)
Bucharest (Bucureşti)
2001, 2005

The National Village Museum (Muzeul Satului) in Bucharest was founded in 1936 as an open-air museum, the third such museum in Europe at the time. Its design owes much to sociologist Dimitrie Gusti, who between 1925 and 1935 managed to put together a team of specialists who roamed much of the country in order to document village life in Romania. Their fieldwork produced invaluable research as well as a wealth of photographs, now in the process of being digitized. The same teams of specialists also acquired the objects on display at the Village Museum.
