Collection(s)Collector Marius Matei, noting how the village loses its "treasures" of ancient civilization that awoke in his soul a sense of nostalgia, although it was only a teenager, decided to make a collection of ethnographic objects. There are more than ten years since, during which time he collected a lot from villages, becoming a connoisseur of traditional culture of Banat. At the foundation of his collection are woven items of grandparents and great grandparents, famous around Timişoara in the art of weaving, sewing, crochet and embroidery. Marius Matei collected in a selective way, based on well-established criteria, and due to his experience as museum curator, has organized it a rigorously, accompanying each piece with a card and inventory number. Clothing assemblies are composed by the ethnographic backgrounds, social status and age, offering visitors an image of the local clothes not only beautiful (Banat port is spectacular), but accurate. Exhibited in two rooms or carefully stored in closets, waiting to be admired there are more than 850 pieces of female and male costumes. The collector added to the picture of traditional culture of Banat jewellery (especially head ornaments with coins), interior textiles, sewing machines, old photographs, ceramics and other objects.
