City Guide The Ethnographic Museum of Transylvania

The Ethnographic Museum of Transylvania

Founded in 1922 by professor Romulus Vuia, the Ethnographic Museum of Transylvania entered the elite group of Romanian ethnographic museums, due to the exceptional quality of its patrimony. It is currently composed of over 41.000 traditional objects from 17th-20th centuries and a documentary fund of over 80.000 items. The museum has two sections: the Pavilion Section and „Romulus Vuia” ethnographic Park (the open-air section). The Pavilion Section functions in „Reduta” Palace – historical monument that dates since the 16th century. The current pavilion exhibition, called „Traditional folk culture from Transylvania in the 18th-20th centuries”, depicts the way the Transylvanian peasants lived two centuries ago. As testimonies, we can see simple tools or ingenious equipments used in domestic activities, culminating with rich folk suits.
