Collection(s)The museum is organized in a homestead, consisting of a dwelling house, sheds and other outer buildings. The house was built in 1969 and acquired by the spouses Flutur in 1981. Once the museum was established, it was necessary to have a larger space for display, and thus house was extended, a shed about 200 sqm was built and the courtyards were also organized as exhibition spaces. The collection has been formed and enriched over time since 1968. In 1981, the owners, Aurel and Lucreţia Flutur bought a homestead in Chişcău, their native village, where they established a museum. In 2005 it received notice of principle for operation. In the museum the objects are grouped to some extent by categories: industrial artifacts, machinery and installations, thrasher, tractors, fireman’s device, stationary engine made in Budapest in 1907, which was in perfect working order. The small, yet valuable collection of history consists of lances and spears dating to the Middle Ages, military objects from the modern and contemporary period: hats, bags, war prosthesis. The world of traditional village is represented by household utensils, costumes, pottery: pots and jugs from the famous potteries in the area: Criştior, Carpinet, Leheceni, Sălişte de Vaşcău and more. Traditional crafts and occupations are represented: smith’s work, mining, leather manufacturing, footwear, cooper’s work, potter’s work, agriculture (tools and agricultural machinery, of which we mention a wooden plough), viticulture, apiculture, sheep breeding. There are roadside crosses, wooden crosses and a fountain. We can also admire other objects, from bells and sheep bells in all shapes and sizes to old phone models, typewriters, calculators, sewing machines (we mention the sewing machine made of wood by a farmer) to the sledges for hills and plains, a mobile bread oven and a gypsy wagon.
