Collection(s)The museum holds ethnography collections from Oaş Land area: furniture, pottery, costumes, textiles, household artefacts, tools. After 1990 new collections emerged, such as those of fine arts, documents, photographs and an art gallery was organized. The open air museum is located in the centre of Negreşti, in a small but picturesque and suggestive space, characteristic of the entire relief of the region. The main monuments are: the wooden church of Lechinţa village (from the first half of the 17th century), the houses of Racşa, Moineşti and Negreşti (from the 18th - 19th centuries), which, together with the adjoining constructions, recreate farm complexes. The visitors will be interested in the "live" functional sector, currently comprising a water mill, a falling mill, two whirlpools and a smithy. Since 1994 only the museum of Negreşti has produced the famous pottery of Vama, and since the summer of 2001 a pottery school-workshop has functioned in the museum, where several tens of pupils have been trained (the workshop was established in a beautiful house from the beginning of the 20th century - Contra House in Vama - and the complex endowment - six potter’s wheels, two kilns, a kneader, furniture comes from a project financed from Phare Programme funds. A traditional inn, a workshop for winter coats and a spirits house are going to be mounted.
