Collection(s):

The museum was inaugurated in November 1996. The vicar Alexandru Marinescu deserves the credit for developing this collection. A part of the collection is a donation from the Barbu Catargiu family to the local church, raised by Pană Filipescu, like the Catargiu family's chapel where there is Barbu Catargiu's tomb and that of his father. The collection comprises wood icons (18th - 19th centuries), but also icons carried out by other techniques (glass, medallion, chromolithography etc.), religious vessels, rare religious books, and priest garbs.
