Cucuteni Archaeological Museum was founded in 1984 in order to protect the funeral Thracian-Getae necropolis from the Vth century BC. The constitution of the museum from Cucuteni enabled the museographs from the Museum of History of Moldova to fit in the building that houses the princely tomb, a permanent exhibition. It was organized on two levels of construction, using some of the panels and showcases, but not very suitable to fulfill the museography conditions.

After two famous princely graves of IV - III BC centuries were discovered to Pietraria in 1976, Tun mayor was ordered to preserve them. In this way appeared the unique museum from Cucuteni, impressive, just above the archaeological site, in 1984. Building plan was implemented by engineer Gheorghe Marin Nicolai.

Construction in situ, the museum also hosts local history pieces, and showcases with original archeological pieces dating from the Cucuteni culture period. The funeral Dacian-Getae necropolis is located in the northern edge of the village Cucuteni, on Gosan hill, the point La pietrarie, being dated from the fourth century BC. Presents eight barrows (burial mounds), of which three have been systematically investigated by archaeologists, the biggest of them (heap no. 2, 3.30 m high with a diameter of 35 m) being defended by a special construction built in 1984.

The manner of construction of the building without poles, hosting the mound, allows a beautiful general overview of the sectioned tumulus.

The theme of the exhibition was focused on illustrating local history, since the Paleolithic period until the nineteenth century, based on excavations in the area, mostly through the presentation of copies of archaeological materials. Moreover, these data were integrated into the broader frame of the whole Cucuteni civilizations of Moldova, and the Thracian-Getae-Dacian civilization. Thus, an exhibition has been created but which no longer meets current requirements of museology.
