Collection(s)The folk architecture reservation presents in open air traditional wooden constructions from the 18th and 19th centuries from Vrancea villages, water mills from Milcov Valley, rural workshops, an inn from Odobeşti, a village school. Its structure was designed as a Vrancea village with all its characteristics. The open air department of the Vrancea Museum Complex is located in the natural environment of the Petreşti forest and comprises 73 authentic constructions grouped into 32 complexes with over 6,000 different artefacts. The museum comprises two distinct large sectors: folk technology and homesteads and public buildings. The latter presents a synthesis of traditional homestead and public buildings types from the main localities on the Putna, Zăbala and Milcov Valleys found within the borders of the present county. The mountain village houses have stone foundations, the round beams are joined at the ends by "cheutoni", are clay bound, and have shingled roofs. The houses specific of the valleys of sub-Carpathian hills usually have a vestibule, and two rooms, one of which is the kitchen, as well as annexes under the form of wine cellars built of massive beams. The plain homesteads have shorter houses, covered by reed or straw, they have corns, sheds and stables, and the exterior decoration usually is of perforated beams. The homesteads moved into the reservation illustrate also the traditional interior of the Vrancea home that comprises a large variety of pieces.
