In 1908 five Saxon collectors from Braşov initiated the Braşov Collectors Association Museum whose founder was Iulius Teutsch. The museum developed and in 1912 was named the Village Museum of Bârsa Country. It ceased its activity at the end of world was two, and a part of its collections were transferred to the University of Brasov, and another part to the Braşov Regional Museum, founded in 1950. In 1967, the Braşov County Museum was enriched with the ethnography department which in 1990 became an autonomous institution having a juridical status (decision no. 227 from the 11th of June 1990). The building that hosts the exhibition was raised in 1902 and restored in 19...79. It had several uses: dance hall, students’ culture house, printing-house, and later museum, exhibiting pieces of ethnography and folk art, pottery, glassware from the 18th - 19th centuries, folk costumes and textiles, painted eggs, glass, metal, leather, bone icons. It also has a documentary stock. The collection comprises 13,600 items dating from the 17th - 20th centuries representing the following ethnographic areas: Bârsa Country, Bran, Rupea, Făgăraş Country, the Hârtibaciu Valley. The central pavilion of Braşov shelters the exhibition "Life in Transylvanian Towns - the 17th - 19th centuries" illustrating the life of the small Transylvanian towns from two centuries ago. The museum owns goods listed in the National Cultural Heritage Treasure.
