‘Paul Țarălungă’ Museum Complex

‘PAUL ȚARĂLUNGĂ’ MUSEUM COMPLEX

The complex, consisting of a museum and a botanical garden, is named after a former teacher of the village. Paul Țarălungă (1921-2012) was born in Prăjești and started to gather items since 1945. In 1970 he managed to open the museum, in which he also held lectures with his students.

In the museum there are objects exposed from the fields of: botany, zoology, archaeology, paleontology, ethnography, geology and even a numismatic collection. There is also a human embryo exposed, preserved in formaldehyde, in various stages of evolution. Many of the items in the exhibition were found in the area, like the wild cat, found in Prăjești in 1970. The botanical garden is unique, if referring to its rural location. During its glory period it hosted approximately 2000 species of plants and trees.
