Small museum with a collection of items and clothes used by people in Transylvania, mainly in the past decades and century. Worth a 1 hour visit. Cheap ticket.

If you are in Cluj, you must check this place. The history scents are all over you turn your head. Lots of objects that keep years of history behind them. I recommend this museum for anyone who wants to know more about Romania

The museum displays nice and interesting items, but the display is obsolete and looks dusty. More recently the museum accommodates exhibitions of fine arts of different quality. The shop has friendly staff but is not too rich.
