The Open Air Museum welcomes its guests with architectural monuments representing the four ethnographic regions of Maramures County: Chioar, Maramures, Lapus and Codru.
As you enter the traditional gate of Maramures you are transported into an archaic uni-verse, a smell of freshly cut grass and old wood, with each home telling a story about an-cient times and people who lived in simplicity and faith.
The traditional house is the core household that also includes several annexes such as a barn, a stable, a coop for pigs and poultry. All these are presented in our museum, along-side with technical installations (oil mills, thresher). The Maramures Village Museum recre-ates an authentic image.
Inside the house there is a functional assembly that reflects the occupation, the social status and the design style of the people. The ovens, the furniture, the decor pieces look like as if you lived in those times.
The History and the Archeology Museum in Baia Mare are truly an important stop for any visitor interested in this region’s past. Ever since 1979, the two sections of the museum have been hosted by the former Treasury building of Baia Mare – a beautiful architectural mon-ument in baroque style, built in the XVIII century.
Baia Mare’s historical center (locally known as the Old Center) was the place where the weekly fair was held in the town.
The Historical Center hosts about twenty of the oldest buildings in Baia Mare, built between the 15th and the 19th centuries, and it is indisputably the most beautiful part of the city.
The biggest museum of its kind in Europe, the Mineralogy Museum from Baia Mare has an impressive collection of what we call “mine flowers”.
All samples were collected by the miners from this area and they are not just spectacular, but also very important for the specialists.
