Collection(s)At first the museum was a department of the Harghita Museum Complex. The two curators Marc Dorel and Suciu Zorel began the proper work of organizing the museum in 1997. They were supported by the Local Council of Topliţa and a few collaborators. The museum opened to the public and the first exhibitions tool place on the 17th of July 1998. The museum is housed in a former mansion of the noble family Urmanczy, built in 1906. The building that was nationalized and used for the town hospital, until 1988, was entrusted for organizing a town museum. The works for arranging the building began in 1989 and interrupted after 1990 were resumed in the '70s, on the upper floor where the first exhibitions opened and where the museum functions. The exhibits include items illustrating the aspects on the traditional trades in the area of Topliţa: agriculture, animal breeding, shepherding, forestry, traditional crafts, hunting, fishing, picking up from nature, objects illustrating the folk costumes, house decoration, traditional installations, objects illustrating the specificity of spiritual life.
