#HaiLaMuzeu (4). History-Archaeology Department, the place where we learn our past
The History-Archaeology Department of the Oltenia Museum in Craiova is one of the most interesting, both as an exhibition space and as objects presented.
So, if you want to know who we are and how we got here, we advise you to come and visit this museum, built in 1906. From ancient times, to Michael the Brave and beyond, to the modern and contemporary era, specialists in History-Archaeology knew how to arrange the life of the past so that it would be as attractive as possible.
The most beautiful exhibits related to our history are here, a visit to the museum being a real history lesson, not only for students, but also for those who want to learn and remember who we really are.
The collections present in this section range from the archaeological and medieval ones to the numismatic ones. Prehistoric Oltenia, Rediscover History and Oltenia Rediviva are, by the way, basic exhibitions of the museum that should not be missed. It is no coincidence that we left last the modern-contemporary collection, which contains, among others, the Titulescu Fund, with 1,029 pieces related to the great Romanian personality, but also a unique staging of the communist period in Romania, both for the nostalgic and for those who want to learn, perhaps, unknown things about that period.
What the specialists from this section tried and, moreover, succeeded in was to perfectly reproduce the beautiful era of the gentlemen and ladies of the belle epoque, when the streets of Craiova really had a special charm. So, you can discover the buffets, Unirii Street, the clothes typical of the times and the beauty of a different atmosphere.
Fortunately, if you do not manage to get to the History-Archaeology Section soon, the excellent virtual tour made on the official website of the museum is at your disposal.
We remind you that the History-Archaeology Department, like the other sections of the Oltenia Museum, is open to the public from Tuesday to Sunday, between 9:00 and 17:00. Don't forget the Facebook page of the Oltenia Museum, where you will find the latest information about exhibitions, events and, why not, unique things about exhibits.
