The Museum of Jewish Theatre in Romania

Located on the ground floor of the House of Museums, the Museum of Jewish Theatre in Romania is permanent exhibition displayed in 11 rooms, paying tribute to the history of Jewish theatre in the city where the first theatre in Yiddish in the world was founded.

The first room illustrates, through a manuscript notebook, the beginnings of Jewish theatre and the life of its founding father, Abraham Goldfaden. The next four rooms contain advertising posters of the State Jewish Theatre of Iașiʼs first years, a puppet show set, props, programs, a costume workshop, models of the building demolished in 1963, and a gallery with photographs. The next rooms are dedicated to the Barascheum Theatre and the State Jewish Theatre of Bucharest, which still functions to this day. The last one is an interactive room, where people can engage in various theatrical activities.
