     The founder of Mures County Museum was Aurel Filimon. At the 1st of May 1021, The Town Hall from Tirgu Mures nominated him as the keeper of the Museum. The Museum from that time consisted in an archeology collection - made in 1882 by Ferenc Kovacs - a priest who, together with Farkas Deak made some diggings in Cristesti. In those times it was well-known a collectioner of archeological findings named Domokos Teleki, from Gornesti. In Apold was operating in those times, a Museum realized after the model of Brukenthal Museum from Sibiu, including a collection of furniture, ceramics and documents. We have to mention also, the Pinacoteca (Art Gallery) from the Palace of Culture, which was made in 1913.
     In 1921, the Museum from Tirgu Mures was holding an archeology collection and a ethno-popular art collection, constituted by Aurel Filimon. These collections composed the first permanent exhibitions of the museum. It was opened for the public in 1934 in the Palace of Culture. In present, the County Museum includes the following divisions: (Archeology-History, Arts, Nature Sciences, Ethnography and Popular Art).
     In the County's main localities, there are also some other museums like the History Museum from Sighisoara; The Ethnographic Museum from Reghin, The History Museum from Tirnaveni. Beside these, you can find in our county some memorial houses, church-museums and private collections.
     The museum collections are constituted from values of national cultural patrimony. The number of the museum objects increases every year, through donations, purchasing and collections. The staff of the museums consists in well trained personnel: scientific researcher, museologists, conservators etc.
     The Museum's patrimony is made in evidence through permanent, temporary or itinerary exhibitions, through congresses and national communication sessions as well as through articles and studies published in "Marisia" Year -Book. The Year-Book includes three fascicles: archeology-history, Etnography-Popular Art and Nature Sciences.
