The Museum of the University of Bucharest participates, as every year, in the Night of Museums event, organized by the National Network of Museums in Romania, a member of the Network of European Museums (NEMO).
Thus, on Saturday, May 13, 2023, members of the UB academic community and the public are invited to the UB Museum (Mihail Kogălniceanu Boulevard, no. 36-46, sector 5, Bucharest – within the Palace of the Faculty of Law of the University of Bucharest) with a special weekend program and entry to the permanent exhibition, as well as to the temporary exhibition dedicated to the 85 years of Science education at the University of Bucharest.
The Museum of the University of Bucharest will be open between 12:00 and 20:00.
For this year, on the occasion of the Night of Museums, now in its 19th edition, the organizers have organized the exhibition entitled A journey through the history of science education at the University of Bucharest (1863-1948).
The UB Museum aims to offer visitors a foray into the fascinating world of sciences: mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, geology, and geography.
In the research of this exhibition, several works of professors from the analyzed period, various periodicals and other works were used, including written documents from several archival funds, many unpublished, and photographs or other types of objects.
The exhibition, complemented by rich documentary material that can be accessed digitally, presents important and unique details on Romanian science and education: reconstructions of the Bucharest academic community (teaching staff, auxiliary and non-teaching staff and graduates) and of the complex structure around which the Faculty of Science has developed.
Among other things, the subjects of study, the schedule of students from the various majors, the real estate heritage, as well as the contributions of female personalities to Romanian science and education are illustrated.
The subjects covered by the exhibition concern the outstanding personalities of Romanian science, student life and other aspects that are linked to higher education in Science (and not only the one in Bucharest).
“We will discover together who were the main outstanding Romanian personalities in these sciences and what was the contribution of the University of Bucharest in all this scientific progress, through the Faculty of Sciences, originally the Higher School of Sciences, created in 1863. […] We will present for the first time, important details for Romanian science and education: reconstructions of the Bucharest academic community (teaching staff, auxiliary teaching staff, auxiliary non-teaching staff and graduates) and of the complex structure that the Faculty of Sciences had”, is the message sent by the organizers.
