The idea of an ethnological park came in 1929 from Romulus Vuia who wanted to build an ethnographic museum center, where indoor and outdoor exhibitions complete each other.

The museum was arranged as an economic entity in which households were to be inhabited by the family representative from the areas included.

Between 1929-1940 in the Ethnographic Park were brought the following buildings: House from Vidra (1929), a sheep pen from Poiana Sibiu together with the shepherd and 75 sheep (1930), The Trinity of Lupsa (1931), the Household of Telciu (1932).

In parallel, the formalities to bring the following tourist attractions were made: Household no. 397 from Poiana Sibiu, The Cave (Bran), House of the potter Moses Terme from Leheceni (Bihor), Households from Arieseni (Apuseni Mountains), Fildu de Sus Wooden Church (1727).

Along with the Vienna Award (30 August 1940), the Ethnographic Museum and the National Park set in Sibiu, where they work until 1945 when, in July, the staff and assets return to Cluj.

Of all the existing buildings before the war, in the Ethnographic Park, only the House from Vidra resisted, all others were destroyed during the war. In 1956, Theodore Onisor and Valer Buturuga rearranged the theme park, creating four thematic areas, while implementing in the same time the name: The Ethnographic Museum of Transylvania Outdoor Section.

Museum’s sections are:
  • Plant and craft workshops;
  • Types of household and regional folk architecture monuments;
  • The ethno botanic (traditional plants, agricultural building border);
  • The ethno zoological (animal breeding, construction of border pastoral villages).
