Dimitrie Gusti National Village Museum

.
The Village Museum, lying on the Herăstrău lake shore in Bucharest, is one of the biggest and the oldest outdoors museum in Europe.
The idea of creating an outdoor museum appeared since the second half of the nineteenth century, Alexander Odobescu proposed the presentation in the Universal Exhibition in Paris, in a special pavilion, of monuments of popular architecture.
The creation of the National Village Museum was the goal of an intensive and sustained research, also as museographic experiments developed over more than a decade, coordinated by Dimitrie Gusti, founder of the Sociological School of Bucharest. Gusti organized between 1925-1935, with specialists in different fields and his students, research campaign with interdisciplinary nature, in a relatively large number of villages. At the end of those campaigns were organized, with items brought from the field, two major exhibitions in 1934 and 1935, as a prelude to the future open-air museum in Bucharest. In only two months, they could build the outstanding National Village Museum, they purchased from studied villages buildings (houses, household annexes, churches, plant) and indoor objects (furniture, ceramics, fabrics, tools, etc.),considered as representative for their places of origin.
The official opening was on May 10, 1936, in the presence of King Carol II and for the public a week later, on May 17.
