Presentation - Museum Of History And Ethnography Bicaz Bicaz
History and Ethnography Museum from Bicaz was founded in 1958 through the complex research achieved by the Romanian Academy in the accumulation lake area of the hydro-electric station “Dimitirie Leonida” in Bicaz. Since 1966 the musem has been functioning in the building of the former village theatre „Ion Kalinderu”. Built at the beginning of the XXth century, the museum building is registered as historic monument. The permanent exhibition of the history and ethnography museum is structured on three distinct rooms that illustrates the monographic history of Bistriţa’s Valley, as well as the 102 paintings donated to the town by the painter Iulia Hălăucescu.
