About "Stephen the Great" Museum

Museum "Stephen the Great" (Stefan cel Mare) from Vaslui was inaugurated on 27 September 1975, being appreciated at that time and after, as the youngest museum in the country. It’s the best museum realized in terms of thematic, scientific and muzeotehnic.
The museum consists of 7 sections:

Ancient history and archeology

Medieval history

Modern and Contemporary History

Culture and Civilization

Thesaurus - Numismatics - Medalist

Ethnography and Folk Art

Contemporary Romanian Art

In this museum is very well illustrated the epoch of
Stephen the Great through: documents emitted by the ruler to "Royal Court" - Vaslui, fragments of pottery (terracotta, rosettes, discs, tiles, terracotta etc.), textile fragments (from clothing accessories ) and, especially, coins (2 anepigrafe silver coins, from Alexander the Good) and valuable venetian ducats or Polish and Hungarian coins. These pieces were discovered by archaeological excavations from "Royal Court" Vaslui and from the "St. John the Baptist", Vaslui (1490).
