Main profile:

The Bistriţa Museum was founded under the name of the Rodna Regional Museum in one of the wings of a former Minorites monastery. In 1976, the Archaeology and History Department moved to the "Silversmith's House", a historic monument of architecture dating from the 16th century, in the Renaissance style. In 1984 the Ethnography and Folk Art Department moved to the old City Hall. In 1988, all the collections were transferred to the present place. From 1974 the institution was managed by George Marinescu until 1992. Currently the museum is housed in the building of the former barracks of the 63 Infantry Regiment, dating from 1898. The museum owns collections of ethnography and art, natural sciences, fine arts, etchings collection, history, and archaeology. The archaeological collection includes items from the Bronze Age belonging to the Wietenberg culture, bronze deposits, Dacian and Celtic graves inventories, the hoard from Şieu-Odorhei (2nd - 1st centuries BC), Roman and mediaeval hoards, mediaeval tools and weapons. The ethnography collection includes tools, traditional rural installations, folk costumes, peasant house (Şanţ), wooden church. The geology collection is made up of mine flowers, petrography collections (especially the unique sandy concretions collection), palaeontology and micropaleontology collections.
