Located in an emblematic building of the city, the Communal Palace, the Folk Art Museum surprises with the multitude of traditional hand-made exhibits.
The museum is housed in a building with great significance for the history of the city. The edifice was built in the 1893 year and served for a period of time as the headquarters of the City Hall, being called the Municipal Palace. Over the years, the building had other destinations, but 1975 hosts the Folk Art Museum, a leading cultural institution of Constanta.
The idea of creating a museum of ethnography by the sea was born in the early '60s from the diligence of several similar institutions in the country: the Brukental Museum in Sibiu, the Museum of Folk Art and the Village Museum in Bucharest. Originally, the museum was conceived as an exponent of Dobrogean ethnography, so in 1975 the first exhibition was organized that offered a cohesive vision of life in the traditional Dobrogean village.
The floral, vegetal, zoomorphic, anthropomorphic motifs, alternating with strips of different widths, create specific ornamental compositions. Woolen fabrics for decoration or household use have the ornamental composition based on alternating worms, with geometrically chosen motifs, evenly and continuously distributed.
