Collection(s)The building is a historic monument, the former house of the writer Vasile Ignat and of the martyr Ioan Ciordaş. It was built at the end of the 19th century in Baroque dominated eclectic style. The museum has functioned in the present location since 1965, and at first presented an eclectic collection. Since 1985 it has been organized as a history and ethnography museum representative for the Beiuş - Vaşcău area. At present it has an ethnography department displaying "folk crafts" items, a history department, and two temporary exhibitions halls. Most of the collection is made up of ethnography and folk art exhibits (about 3,000 items): costumes, interior fabrics, household utensils, tools, furniture, pottery, icons, woodenware from Budureasa. The oldest ethnography item is a house beam dating from 1741. The history and archaeology collection includes Neolithic and Bronze Age finds, Dacian civilization artefacts, Middle Ages and modern history exhibits.
