Romania has many unique museums in the world, and one of them is the "Ion Ţugui" Museum of Spoons. This unique museum is located in Câmpulung Moldovenesc, in the memorial house of history professor Ion Ţugui, on Gh. Popovici street, no. 1.
The Wooden Spoon Museum is home to the largest collection of wooden spoons in the country and the only one that has been organized as an exhibition. Many people collect certain objects during their lifetime, and this professor has gathered wooden spoons from all over the world. Although seemingly ordinary objects, they are an example of a different kind of art - the wooden spoon has evolved from an ancestral utensil to an ethnographic object, steeped in history.

Visitors who enter the "Ion Ţugui" Wooden Spoon Museum are overwhelmed by the large number of objects they find. Over 6,000 exhibits are on display here, ranging from wooden spoons to coins and hand towels. The spoons can be seen everywhere - in rooms, on corridors, on stairs, and even on windowsills. They are not arranged randomly, but according to the material from which they were made or the place they come from.

The "Ion Ţugui" Wooden Spoon Museum preserves its collection on stands, and each object in the house has a label that shows the year of the respective spoon, as well as its place of origin and owner, if applicable. The part of the museum where the so-called "curiosity spoons" are displayed is very interesting. Here, you can find the "spoon of bachelors", "spoons of engaged couples", "spoons of married couples", "the spoon with bells" (used by women to signal their husband) or "the spoon with two bowls".
