If you had to choose between the two main artistic exhibits of Cucuteni culture creators – the art and ceramics – the painted Cucuteni–Trypillia ceramics can undoubtedly be considered the most significant achievement. It successfully stands out from the most severe examinations and any other comparisons, not only with other kinds of ceramics of the ancient times in Europe, but also with different kinds of achievements in the same domain of the folk’s art of all times, certainly being one of the most brilliant artistic eneolithic achievements of the era.

The Cucuteni Eneolothic Art Museum represents the achievement of the desire of several generations of archaeologists and recognition of the constant efforts made for over seven decades by the Museum of History and Archaeology in Piatra-Neamţ.
