The Ethnographic Museum Săcele functions in a historical monument building, documentarily attested in 1543, which served as a collecting place for quitrents for three centuries.

The permanent exhibition illustrates segments of life specific to the traditional civilization of the Carpathians (occupations, crafts, technical installations, a living space and traditional costumes). The exhibits highlight aspects of the multicultural character of Săcele area by suggestively presenting a world common both to the shepherds and the Csangos. In the courtyard of the museum there is a hydraulic hammer fulling mill. The fulling mill, which thickened wool fabrics, was transferred from Târlungeni to the courtyard of the museum.

The urban-rural relationship indirectly revealed in the exhibition brings to the fore the phenomenon of acculturation, as the settlements in the area of Săcele have been strongly influenced by the urban way of life being located in the proximity of Brasov.

The museum offers visitors the opportunity to purchase our publications and traditional objects made by local craftsmen.
