About

The Haáz Rezső Museum in Odorheiu Secuiesc is an ethnographic, local history, art and natural history museum in the central area of ​​Szeklerland - a territory in the Southeastern part of Transylvania.
The Haáz Rezső Museum is one of the oldest institutions of education and culture, both locally and in the whole region. The first inventory (Protocollum) of the reformed college (an institution founded by Count János Bethlen), made in in 1797, has been preserved to this day, and is proof of the fact that besides the library, it also had a collection of antiquities, numismatics and geology. At that time, there was already a drawer of physics and natural sciences, a collection of natural curiosities, relics, the coats of arms of the benefactors, and flags.
While other initiatives remained unsuccessful, the collection of folk art founded by Rezső Haáz (1883-1958), an art teacher, counting about four thousand objects, became an individual museum. The collection is public since 1913, and in 1950 it became a state museum (raion), having its own headquarters in 1978.
The museum received one hectare of land in front of the grave of Balázs Orbán in Seiche. Starting with 1972, a row of the Szekler gates was erected - the beginning of an open-air museum.
