Collection(s)The village is located on Hârtibaciului Valley, a special area between Târnave and Făgăraş mountains with a rich natural and cultural heritage. Here there are Dacian and Roman finds, old wooden churches, but the pride of the area with visibility at European level is the Saxon fortified churches. In Alţâna, a former medieval Saxon settlement, attested from 1291, there is a fortified church dating from the 16th century, an information office and a weaving center opened at Gerendy House, noble house dated 1508, and an intense cultural life that cherishes Romanian and Saxon traditions, music and traditional dance, many leading musicians originating from Hârtibaciului Valley. The owner, architect Eugen Vaida, is one of the most active promoters of local culture. He is supported by his brother, Stephen, restorer with many professional successes, continuing to enrich the collection of ethnographic objects and to restore objects and buildings. The current collection includes approx. 1,400 objects: costumes, hats, furniture, Romanian and Saxon pottery, glass icons, chests (1837, 1851), a wedding standard, towels, coins, tiles, Dacian millstones found in the area and an extremely rare piece: a human shape stone of sacrifice laid the foundation of a Saxon house in the 18th century.
