The event was presented to the public by Irina-Margareta Nistor, well-known film critic and Ovidiu Cârstina, general director of the Museum of History. You can see art works made by a number of 64 professional artists, most of them are members of the Visual Artists’ Union from Romania, from the territorial branches, as well as from the branches from Bucharest.
The actual museum of history was opened for public in September 1986 in the building of the former “Justice Palace”, whose construction begun with money obtained, according to documents from that period, on February 23, 1901, and the neoclassical style construction was finished the following year. After 1918 a new floor was added. At this location is the museum’s main exhibition, where the visitor is told about the history of the Romanian people from the Paleolithic age until 1918. The museum’s lobby and the big hall on the ground floor offers the visitor temporary exhibits occasioned by the celebration of some important monuments in the history of the Târgoviște City, photographic and art exhibitions, as is this exhibition ,,Contemporary art from Romania”.
