The Village Museum of Bucovina in Suceava, situated next to the Princely Citadel, shows true examples of local architecture, as wooden buildings were brought here from different villages in the region.
The exhibits reflect the structure, organization and activities of a traditional village from Bucovina, including houses, workshops, taverns, churches and even a watermill. Among the most popular exhibits are the bell tower from Vama, which dates from 1783 and is still used for religious services, and the tavern from Şaru Dornei. The interiors are also decorated respecting the ethnographic particularities of the area. Inside the buildings, visitors will find traditional furniture, ovens and textiles, some of them recreating not only the daily activity of the Romanian peasants, but also specific ceremonies such as baptism and funeral.
The museum is a living cultural entity, as it hosts numerous outdoor folk festivals, craft fairs for promoting the authentic traditions and creations and creation camps for pupils.
