Located in the Székely Land, an ethno-cultural region in eastern Transylvania, Cristuru Secuiesc (Székelykeresztúr) is the most significant economical-organizational and educational center of the Cristuru basin. Among the main sights of the town are the old building of the Unitarian School (built in late Baroque style on the turning of the 17-18th centuries), the town hall, the bronze statue of Petõfi Sándor (made by András Márkos in 1971), and the Molnár István Museum.

The Molnár István Museum and open-air ethnographic section are one of the most significant country museums of the region. The exhibits include archaeological finds from the Neolithic and the Bronze Age, pottery; ethnography items: folk technical installations; mineralogy items; local fauna specimens, and a herbarium. Established in the building of the former Casino in 1946, it was reorganized in 1960. Molnár István (1910-1997) was a Hungarian teacher, ethnographer and curator.
