The building is a historic monument, attested in 1543. For three centuries it was a place for collecting taxes. Over time, the building underwent changes, the present aspect dating from 1804. From 1848 the "Tax House" lost its original role, as it received various public functions. In 1962 the monument was taken over by the Braşov County Museum, that organized in 1964 the first history - ethnography permanent exhibition. Since 1990 it has been the subsidiary of the Braşov Ethnographic Museum. The museum shelters historical documents, various folk costumes, peasant craftsmen’s artefacts, tools, household artefacts, traditional rooms.
