The ”Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University Museum which functioned until October, 26th 2010, fulfilled its mission according to the human and material resources it had been allotted, while the new organization involves an important transformation, both in terms of quantity and quality. The institution, as a department of the University, aims to exploit its dual heritage, given by the academic vocation and archaeological research.

Based on this historical and symbolic inheritance, the University Museum has two complementary compartments, respectively the Cucuteni Civilization Museum and the Academic Museum. Besides tradition, a unitary conception makes the link between these administrative parts, so that the activity of conservation and exhibition will be accompanied by a framework proper for getting acquainted with the University past, in all its aspects.
