Outstanding small museum. Quality display and content. Focus on guild and lifestyle factors. Tools of daily living and clothing. 16th-19th century. A great exhibition set out based on craft and era. Nice small gift shop. Well worth the price of admission.

I think this is the most well organized museum in Brasov and a great one. I liked the temporary exhibition of dolls theatre. Great experience and for 7 lei (1.8 €) / ticket is worth it.

As I entered, I recived the card (with a smile) and was invited to step inside the rooms with different themes: crafts, guild related exibits, medicine... but as I entered the WWI exibit I felt chills on my spine. I was transposed in my grandfathers(1896-1997...yes,...More
