The existence of the Ethnographic Museum “Dumitru Ulieru” in Pietroșița has its roots in the 1970s. At that time, Professor Dumitru Ulieru came to the village to teach history at the community school. His desire was to collect objects from the people of the village, reminiscent of the village’s past. His passions, history and ethnography, as well as the help of his wife and students, were of great help in organizing an exhibition.

The collection was initially stored in the school, then this mid-19th century house belonging to Aurica Șerb, the daughter of a local landlord, was chosen. The school collection included objects relating to the occupations of the villagers, folk costumes specific to the area and items of furniture. Thus, in 1978, the museum was integrated into the heritage of the Târgoviște Museum Complex, and in 1998 it was named after its founder, Dumitru Ulieru.
