Cucuteni Eneolithic Museum | Romania

The Cucuteni Eneolithic Art Museum was inaugurated on the 24 June 2005, in the occasion of the ‘Piatra Neamț city’s Day, around the celebrating of 120 years since the discovery of the eponymous resort of the Cucuteni culture and the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the Museum of History and Archaeology.

Cucuteni Museum is basically fulfilling the wish of several generations of archaeologists and – at the same time – it is a recognition of the constant efforts made for over seven decades by the Museum of History and Archaeology Piatra-Neamt, which is the main institution of its kind in Romania that contributed to the research and valuing of the Cucuteni cultural heritage through numerous cultural, national and international scientific manifestations (sessions, seminars, symposiums, conferences) and through publications (magazines, collections, monographs, summaries, directories, catalogs, brochures, flyers), made entirely or in collaboration, thus, presently, the Cucuteni Culture is the prehistoric European civilization that is studied the most extensively.

The building that hosts this exceptional exhibition, is registered on the List of Historical Monuments (code: LMI-NT-II-m-B-10573) and it is located in the very historic center of Piatra Neamt, very near the builiding comissioned by the Mushatini (the Royal Court, the “Royal St. John” Church and its bell tower) and other major museums, which are part of the Neamt County Museum Complex (the Royal Court, the Art Museum and the Museum of Ethnography).
