 museums from Husi

There are four museums in Husi: The City Museum situated in the center of the Town (str. General Teleman), The Viticulture Museum (in the old building of the viticol School), The Old Books Museum (inside the Bishopric of Husi) and the Caricature Museum (everywhere in the town, but mainly inside the building of the "Alexandru Giugariu" House of Culture). From these, the only functional is the caricature museum.


...The City Museum

The City Museum was set up in the autumn of 1956, thanks to a group of intellectuals from Husi, supported by the local authorities. The museum was set up from money gathered form the "M. Kogalniceanu" High-School (now "Dimitrie Cantemir") and "Cuza-Voda" High-School and through donations: prof. Stefan Bujoreanu - archeological collection (vases, tools, and Greek amphors discovered in Vetrisoaia), antique and medieval coins; prof Mihai Ciobanu - foreign medieval coins, that circulated through our teritory (polish, turk, hungarian) and comemorative bronze medals; the Bishopric of Husi - 2 paintings of Gheorghe Tatarascu, many stamps tied to the act of Uniting; School nr. 3 - the painting of Mihail Kogalniceanu painted by C. Angheluta; city Churches - 17 old books from the XVIIIth century.
At the beginning of the 1958 century the collective scientific committee of the museum was set up, made of: inv. Gheorghe Melinte, prof. Stefan Bujoreanu, prof. Mihai Ciobanu, Constantin Enache, Elena Chirica and Mihai Carausu. The Commitee worked under the helping of prof. univ. Ioan Gugiuman from the "Al. I. Cuza" University from Iasi, that had a series of conferences at the Radio Center of Husi on: "The history of Husi", "D. Cantemir, life and volumes" and so on. A century since the Uniting was celebrated with a temporary exhibition. At the beginning, the museum was inside the School Nr. 3, then in a building inside the city, since 1960, in the building of the Bishopric Palace, and since 1983 in the House "Adam Mitache" situated (today) on General Teleman str. nr.8.
The collections are separated: archeological, history and ethnography. Until 1979 there was a section for science of nature. The exponents show the old period of these lands, valuable being the ones regarding the geto-dacs, discovered at Bunesti-Averesti, through the contribution of the ex-director od the museum Violeta Venturia Teodoru (Bazarciuc).
The ethnography section lustrates, through objects with special documentary and artistic value, the gift of the local workers and the age of old traditional works: agriculture, viticulture, bee growing. Che casnic industry, textile, richly is represented by materials and fabric techniques. The museum has also a plastic art exhibition, with works of Gheorghe Tattarascu, Otto Brice, C. Angheluta, Adina Paula Moscu, Viorel Husi, and so on. The building in which the museums is currently working was built at the end of the XIXth century (1880) by Adam Mitache, ex-prefect of Falciu county (1907), ecliptic style, with many ornaments, inside and outside, ex-home and administrative palace, noted in the List of Architectural Monuments in 1992, at position 38 B 0146, severely affected by the earthquake in 1990 (foundation and suprastructure), infested with the Merulius Lacrymans mushroom since 1993 (wood, brick walls, mobile cultural patrimony), closed to visitors.
Today, the museum, that belongs to the local public domain si closed because of the state of conservation of the monument, without enough specialty personal (director V. V. Teodoru, killed during the schedule, in unknown conditions), without security, robbed in the summer of 2001.
Urgent measures for the restoration of the monument and the saving of collections, irreplaceable proofs of the history of Husi and ex-county Falciu.

...The Museum of VIticulture

The museum was created inside the Viticol School by prof. dr. Avram D. Tudosie in the years it functioned as professor here. His goodwill made a real sanctuary of wine and left the next generations important information about tools and the way wine was and is made at Husi. Hundreds of wine types make the collection rich. This museum is one of the few of this kind from the country.
