Museum of Viticulture and Pomiculture Golești


The museum was established in 1939 by Royal Decree issued by King Carol II. The main building, around which the medieval ensemble of Golești was built, is the Golești Manor. It was built in 1640 by Stroe Leurdeanu and his wife Vișa from Golești. Surrounded by defensive walls, the complex includes: the guardhouse, from where Tudor Vladimirescu was arrested in 1821, the Bolnița or House of the Poor, the Slobodă School, the Memorial History Exhibition, temporary exhibitions, the Turkish Bath and the area dedicated to creative workshops for children, all these buildings being grouped around the manor house.

Next to the manor house courtyard is the children’s park and the open-air Ethnographic Museum, dedicated to the two ancient occupations of viticulture and fruit growing. Houses, outbuildings, institutions and specialised buildings from Romanian villages, specific to the period 1800-1900, have been dismantled and reassembled at Golești.

The museum is set on an area of 14 hectares and offers the visitor a picturesque image of country life — both of the nobleman and the peasant. Green spaces, fruit trees, fresh air and the sound of nature complete the good mood can be found at the Golești Museum.
