The State Ethnographic museum in Warsaw is April 2 launching an exhibition entitled Vampires and Other Evil Blood Sucking Creatures, an event organized jointly with the Romanian Institute of Culture. The anthropological and ethnographic exhibition consists of pictures, objects, documentary photographs, video recordings and texts devoted to traditional Romanian culture and rituals related to the world of the dead. Visitors to the exhibition will learn about funeral customs in Transylvania, where the living still bury their dead with objects and magic spells to prevent them being transformed into evil, blood sucking ghouls. The exhibition will also address the popular Dracula myth. It will be accompanied by numerous events such as meetings with experts in film and literature, historians, anthropologists, ethnographers, doctors and even priests, all of who will give insights into the subject of vampires and vampirism.

There will also be a movie marathon entitled A Night with a Vampire, featuring films with the most famous incarnations of Count Dracula and other classic vampire stories. Finally, children will have a chance to meet a special guest vampire who will tell them stories.
