Open – air Exhibition   
The Szekler wooden houses and gates represent a special part of the museum’s collection. Their particularity is given by the fact that they cannot be kept in stock, and they cannot be handled as monuments with certain functions. That is why their retaining and maintenance causes the Museum great worry. t was at the end of the 19th century when the ethnographers realised that the building techniques and constructional particularities of the Szekler wooden houses and gates were dying out. The industrialization started to make its presence felt in the rural region as well, and therefore the rural population stopped building its traditional houses in the traditional way. The imitation of the city houses started to gain ground in the villages as well, and the neglected, old houses became the symbol of misery and poorness in the eyes of the rural population.
