Through its vocation as an institution engaged in training of human personality, enrols, among other factors of education, as a stringent requirement on the spiritual life of the town. Here visitors come in contact with the relics of a distant age.

The museum began its work in late 1965, by making a permanent exhibition called "The Peasant Rising of 1907". This first museum institution from Rosiori de Vede was the result of a happy initiative made by a group of local intellectuals: Prof. Petrica Voivozeanu, Prof. Florea Costache, Professor Anastasius Stirbu, Colonel Ion Mailaf. Older collections have been mentioned by the great historian Nicolae Iorga, in his writings from 1940. Following the institution reorganization, during the years 1984-1987, Rosiori de Vede museum’s thematic has been enriched and shaped with local history issues. The scientific level and the content ideas of the exhibition have raised, the graphics and presentation form of the exhibits have improved.

The Municipal Museum of History Rosiorii de Vede, includes the history of this settlement over 600 years. This corner of the country, has an unparalleled rich past in history, its presence in the country history has been reflected in many materials from archaeological excavations in the area: Mycenaean sword (fourteenth century BC), hoard of Peretu (sec. IV, i. AD), many iron tools and weapons of Albesti Dacian fortress (IV-III BC), patella from Socetu (sec. III - IV) with inscription in Latin and findings from Dulceanca ( sec. IV-VI).

We also have to mention the Transalutanus limes, an of impressive defensive system about 6 m high, dating from Roman times. It began in Turnu Magurele, passing Putineiu, Rosiorii the Vede, and finished in Rasnov. The lime was a subject of archaeological research during the years 1981-1982 by Ioana Bogdan Cataniciu, archaeologist who searched the Roman camp from Urlui, found SV from the town.

Since 2004, considering the new approaches to museography and museology, the Municipal Museum of History has changed the permanent exhibition profile on local history. There were made two salons: the ethnography salon and the urban ethnology of daily life of Rosiori de Vede salon, with sequences from the late nineteenth century and first half of the twentieth century.

The archeological exhibition was reorganized in which the main objects are: Mycenaean sword (fourteenth century BC), discovered by chance in 1937 in the SW part of the town, the hoard of Peretu (IV century BC) discovered in a princely tomb, belonging to a representative of the local Thracian-getics aristocracy and the patella from Socetu (sec. III - IV).
