The Laboratory of the National Village Museum can offer the following services to third parties:

The estimate of these works includes the following elements:

  • 1. Preliminary diagnosis - assessment of the need for intervention 30-100 lei/object

    This price also includes any travel/transportation expenses for evaluations outside the institution;

As the case may be, specialist travel expenses, object transport expenses (to be drawn up depending on the transport requirements):
  • a. The cost of public transport tickets - minimum fare 10 lei
  • b. Traveling with the museum car in Bucharest 30 lei
  • c. Travel over distances greater than 80 km discount

    *For distances greater than 80 km, the settlement will be made by travel order, according to the law;

  • 2. Labor charges estimated number of hours x hour value

    The price will be calculated as follows:
    Price = Number of hours estimated to be needed for each operation x Value of the hour;

  • 3. Material expenses will be calculated later

    They include: specific substances, disposable instruments, consumables;

  • 4. Directing expenses 25%
  • 5. Other expenses 10%

Works can also be carried out at the client's premises, if minimum conditions are ensured in this regard, calculating actual execution costs, to which travel and transport costs are added.

For each speciality, the explanation of material and labor costs is presented as an estimate in the following appendices, as appropriate. If any of the necessary operations involve a high degree of difficulty, requiring labor and/or the consumption of additional materials, the estimate may undergo changes. If the degree of complexity of the performed works required a working time, respectively lower or higher material expenses compared to the estimated values, a post-calculation estimate of the works will be prepared. Insurance of valuables falls exclusively on the beneficiary.
