Golesti Museum Complex is located on the left bank of the river Doamnei, at a distance of 10 km from Pitesti city, DN road 7 Bucharest - Pitesti, in the village Stefanesti.

The idea of founding a museum, in an area with many historical traditions as that of Golesti, was put in practice in 1958, the museum complex currently occupying an area of about 14 hectares and incorporating two major sections:

1. Museum of History - Ethnography
2. Museum of viticulture and fruit growing outdoors in Romania

The Museum of History - Ethnography illustrates to the visitors four permanent exhibitions: ethnography and folk art section of the Arges county, teaching section (school Golesti) Golesti Mansion memorial exhibition, the history section of Golesti.

Golesti House
was built in 1640 by master Stoica, with the support of Leordeanu Stroe, married with Visa from Golesti; it should be reminded that the boyars Golesti ruled Campulung and Bucharest houses and have built the monastery Vieri-Fagetu (common Colibasi) Valea Monastery (village Titesti) and the church from Golesti.

Between 1942-1943, they made many renovations creatin a museum in the mansion. The memorial exhibition includes ancient furniture, books and other objects, paintings that belonged to Golesti family and their close relatives: Dr. Carol Davila, Ana Racovita married, their son, playwright Alexander Davila.

The second museum, the vine growing and fruit growing outdoors in Romania, was inaugurated in 1966, stretching over an area of 10 ha. This museum is found among the specialized museums and is seen as one of the largest and most important museums of Romania, unique in Europe for thematic profile. Its specificity lies in its organization into two complementary sectors.

The most important sector is the peasant's homes brought from the main fruit and wine growing areas of the country, structured as a Romanian village, with church in the center, the inn, fountains and crucifix at the turning of the roads.

Each wine or fruit household covers besides the living house, dependencies, working tools and facilities related to the main and related occupations: animal breeding, farming, bee etc.
