The ”Haszmann Pál” Museum in Cernat

The Village Museum in Cernat was named after its founder Pál Haszmann. The museum is located in Cernatul de Sus, in the curia of Gyula Damokos, namely in the park and yard that surround it. The curia was built between the 17th and 19th centuries, being given its neoclassicist appearance in 1831. The area larger than two hectares and the curia with many rooms offer a unique possibility to set up an open-air ethnographic museum. The institution opened its gates to the public on February 25th, 1973. The current coordinator of the ever richer collection and museum activities is Pál-Péter Haszmann, while his brother, József-István Haszmann manages the Folk Art School. Their brother Lajos Haszmann, along with the extended family, provides financial support. The nature of the open-air ethnographic museum is given by the Szekely houses and gates, the water mill, the typical houses of the Szeklers’ folk architecture – all relocated to the garden of the Haszmann Pál Museum.
