‘RĂZEȘILOR GĂZARI’ MUSEUM OF THE TAZLĂUL SĂRAT VALLEY
The museum was opened in 2015, at the initiative of professor Constantin Parascan, who was born in the Prăjești village. He donated the land to the ‘Urmașii Răzeșilor Găzari de pe Valea Tazlăului Sărat’ cultural foundation and the local government built it. This is how the inauguration of the museum started. This place is dedicated to the yeomen of the area who exploited and manufactured petroleum. For decades their main occupation was the transport and sale of petroleum products.
The building is organised in minisections and hosts: the Archaeology section (with Cucuteni ceramics discovered on Ghindaru Hill), traditional household, crafts and peasants’ customs, the ‘History of school and education; – The Yeomen’ lifestyle’ and the section illustrating the history of the Orthodox worship. Outside of the museum there is a pavilion with objects that were found or donated. The most spectacular object is a part of an installation that was used to process the gas at that time.
