Born officially in 2014, when Museikon project was submitted for funding from the EEA Grants. A new museum of the icon revitalizes a restored historical monument building in Alba Iulia. It is the result of joint efforts of the Alba County Council, the Alba Iulia National Museum of the Alba Iulia Union, the Alba Iulia Orthodox Archbishopric and the University of Bergen University (Norway) to use the current standards collections of icons and old books held by the two Alba Iulian cultural institutions. The new cultural offer includes a permanent exhibition space (8 rooms located on the ground floor and the monument building floor), two temporary exhibition areas (the basement of the old build...ing and the new attic built in the 80s of the last century) and a trail of archaeological remains, whose inner and outer path brings to light the history of the monument and the city of Alba Iulia. Temporary exhibitions, conferences, painting and restoration workshops are periodically organized and two magazines are published: Museikon. A Journal of Religious Art and Culture and Museik-online. Collections: more than 5,700 wooden icons, glass icons, textile icons, paper icons, crosses, church vestments, various religious objects, ancient Romanian books, old foreign books.
