Collection(s)The museum includes a collection of glass icons by the folk painters Matei and Ţimforea, glass icons from Nicula, Făgăraş and Bârsa Country. The museum is a homestead from the middle of the 19th century made up of a house and a shed, endowed with furniture specific of the region and age, a collection of rare photographs representing costumes from the 19th and 20th centuries, bottom drawers made by local craftsmen during the 19th and 20th centuries, pottery manufactured by local potters. The first artefacts were collected in the 1960s by the mayor's secretary and the local priest. The museum building was donated by Mrs. Frâncu Silvia, the daughter of the former priest Vulcan, in order to become a village museum with a room dedicated to Badea Cârţan (1848 - 1911), the Romanian peasant who went to Rome on foot to see the Trajan's Column.
