Collection(s)This museum is first of all the repository of the heritage legacy of the "Association" Museum (established in 1905 and dismantled by a communist decree in 1950). Its heritage (moved to Brukenthal Museum in 1950) lay the foundation for the later "ASTRA" Museum of Transylvanian Civilization. The inventory includes 9,002 objects under the A prefix, in six collections: 6,523 embroideries, 1,025 folk costumes and textiles, 567 cult objects, 539 wood, bone and iron, 330 pottery and 18 dolls. Over the last half a century the collections increased to 46,314 items: 21,638 costumes and textiles, 9,868 embroideries, 7,137 pottery, 3,938 cult objects, 3,733.
