Collection(s)The Ministry of Arts took the initiative to found the museum, and forwarded some money to this end. However, in 1922 the ministry transferred the task to the "Prince Charles" Cultural Foundation that appointed a commission for making proposals for the future museum. The commission charged Romulus Vuia to carry out in summer 1922 a research and acquisition campaign in the ethnographic areas of Pădureni and the Haţeg Country. That campaign resulted in a collection of 1,230 pieces and 160 ethnographic photographs. The collection laid the foundation for the official recognition of the Ethnographic Museum of Transylvania. Between 1922 and 1925, the museum was housed in the Museum of Arts and Professions, 5 Bariţiu Street. In that building, in the spring of 1925, they opened the first exhibition displaying the acquisitions from Pădureni and the Haţeg Country. Between 1925 and 1935, the museum functioned in the Mihai Viteazu Square building. In 1928, the permanent exhibition opened officially. The "Reduta" Palace, housing since 1959 the Ethnographic Museum of Transylvania, dates from the 16th century. In the 18th - 19th centuries here was one of the most important inns of the town. The exhibition included the following theme sectors: exhibits from nature, hunting, fishing, agriculture, animal breeding, textile domestic industry, furrier work, pottery, construction elements, kitchen pots, costumes, clothing, and folk traditions. After the Dictate of Vienna (1940), the museum moved to Sibiu where it functioned until 1945. The museum was reorganized in 1958, and the collection has been much enriched over the last 40 years, as the collections rose to 55,000 items. The museum has also a library of 12,000 volumes.
