Collection(s)The museum emerged in 2005 in a new location. It shelters ethnography and folk art collections from northern Dobrudja. The ethnography collection comprises a movable heritage presenting the practice of traditional trades and crafts, the lifestyle by the end of the 19th century and early 20th century up to 1950. It includes agricultural and animal breeding artefacts; artefacts for the practice of various trades and for daily life; icons. The folk art collection includes common and decorative fabrics representative for all the ethic groups; costumes and ornaments. The ethnographical collection includes about 1,600 artefacts representing the tools used at practising the traditional trades and crafts. In the field of the processing of animal and vegetable produce for nourishment, the collection presents tools, devices, instruments, weapons, artefacts for fishing, bee-keeping, tree growing, vinegrowing, seed processing, agriculture, flour-milling, animal breeding, and hunting. The ethnographic heritage comprises a remarkable metal vessel collection (267 pieces). The collection is diverse due to the metal used (copper, iron, silver, and lead) and owing to the manufacturing and decoration technique (cutting, boring, hammering, rolling, polishing, incision, filing, riveting, bending, and casting). The museum holds a carpet collection (155 pieces) of a special documentary and artistic value. The woollen carpets were manufactured at the weaving loom and they beautified the traditional interior. The collection comprises carpets of various sizes, from narrow ones to long ones set on the wall or covering one of the pieces of traditional furniture to large ones rectangular in shape usually covering a wall (rug or carpet). The collection includes remarkable carpets with complex compositions made up of bunches of flowers, birds, town life scenes, depicted in a naturalist manner and arranged as medallions. The colours ranged from discrete ones (green, ochre, and dark blue) to strong ones (yellow, orange and red). Black (a background colour) and white (used to emphasize motifs) balance the colour composition. The presence of the Aromanians in Dobrudja is revealed by their contribution to the preservation of the traditions reflected in the heritage owned by the museum: 670 pieces (household and decorative fabrics, costumes). The thick woollen or goat's-hair fabrics of various colours used to prevail in the Aroman traditional house. The traditional male and female Aromanian costumes are made up of numerous diverse pieces (peasant woollen skirts, shirts, long coats a.s.o.). The one hundred ornaments were executed by ancient techniques (filigree, "au repoussé" hammering, engraving, and intarsia).
