European Night of Museums Celebrated by National Army
CHISINAU, May 20, 2013 — The Center of Military Culture and History hosted on May 18 the European Night of Museums, an international event organized in all the museums of the country.
Acting Defense Minister, Vitalie Marinuta, called the guests, including children willing to know more about the history of our nation, to visit the Military Museum and follow our ancestors’ deeds. “There is not future without past and the exhibitions of the military museum show us evidence about the glorious brave deeds of our predecessors”, Minister Marinuta said at the opening of the event.
The agenda of the National Army Military Museum included medieval fights, historical clothes, alphorns, groups of drum players and march with torches. The guests also had the possibility to visit temporary exhibitions of religious icons, white weapons, flags, historic banners, as well as the latest exhibition on the evolution of photo-video supplies. Yet, the most important element of the event was the exhibition dedicated to the heroes fallen in the war for independence of Republic of Moldova — “Martyrs of Nation”.
To raise the interest of the audience for the archaic clothes, everyone had the possibility to take photos with soldiers wearing medieval clothes and historic characters.
The Military Museum started organizing the Night of Museums in 2008. This year, the co-organizer of the event was the Museum of the Customs Service.
The European Night of Museums is a successful event carried out by the Ministry of Culture and Communication from France.
