RECONSTRUCTIONS

The project "Conservation and restoration of the ethnographic heritage in ASTRA Open Air Museum - Dumbrava Sibiului" includes reconstruction activities that focus on ethnographic monuments dismantled on-site and brought for restoration in the museum which is thus getting closer to finalizing the thematic project designed back in 1963, that of traditional civilization in all its aspects. So far, the following monuments have been rebuilt:

BRAID LACE MANUFACTURER HOUSE from SCHEII BRASOVULUI, BRAŞOV COUNTY

The house being reconstructed is typical for the Scheii region architecture of the mid 19th century, as it dates back to 1853 according to the inscription in Romanian language, Cyrillic characters, marked on the beam from the "front house".

STONEMASON HOUSEHOLD from CUPŞENI, MARAMUREŞ COUNTY

Cupseni household-workshop includes the house of Filip Marin (Cupseni village) and the barn of Buda Vasile (Ungureni village) to which additional annexes were added later so that, besides stoning, other common occupations could be presented.

MINER HOUSE from ALUN, HUNEDOARA COUNTY

In 2005, a miner house from Alun village, Bunila, Hunedoara County, belonging to the Herbann family, was saved and brought in the quarantine area of the ASTRA Museum of traditional folk civilization. The house dates back to the early 19th century.

FRUITER HOUSE from BĂLĂNEŞTI, GORJ COUNTY

Even from the first thematic project, the presentation of two households was included in the sector of traditional food processing: one for viticulture (Vlădeşti, Gorj County) and one related to fruit tree culture (Bălăneşti, Gorj County). Bălăneşti household truely has great ethnographic value due to its being a proof of the Gorj peasant building skills.
