Research is one of the most important concerns of our museum. Therefore, between 1990 - 2007, field campaigns were carried out applying "emergency ethnology" in the depopulated Saxon villages in Rupea area and the Hârtibaci Valley and partly in Bârsa County.
The Gustian researches in Drăguş were resumed between 1987-1988 and 1999-2000.
The Ethnographic Museum of Braşov coordinated the European programme for the rural wool processing facilities, La Vâltori – Lisa Complex (documentation, reconstruction and integration in the tourist circuit).
We documented and researched the intangible cultural heritage in the southeastern Transylvania (Pentecost at Şona, Boriţa/The Mask custom at the Csangos in Săcele area, agrarian practices and rituals in southern Transylvania – the Ploughman, Vad, the wedding ceremony, Vlădeni, Rupea, Boholţ).
We researched the border area of Braşov-Borş highway (2006-2007, Mândra, Şercaia, Hălmeag, Vad).
The field campaigns took place in the south-east of Transylvania, the depopulated Saxon villages (62 localities) being a priority.
In Olt County, a major interest focused on the settlements which have not been systematically searched so far, located on the right side of the Olt river (Rucăr, Feldioara, Galaţi, Calbor, Boholţ, Şona).
Emergency investigations were made with regard to the registration of the last peasant hydraulic installations (mills, sawmills) in the following localities: Berivoi, Bucium, Copăcel, Dejani.
Researches have been resumed in the localities that were not part of the emergency research programme in Rupea area (Bogata, Dopca, Fântâna, Hoghiz, Lupşa Cuciulata, Racoşul de Jos).
