We paid the museum a visit, it wasn't quite what we expected though. It wasn't really about Brasov, but more about the people who lived in it. My wife enjoyed it more than me; fashion bits photographs of weddings. I'd have preferred more about industry and history! There was English translation in most rooms. There was a temporary exhibition on... More

If you enjoy an eclectic mix of artefacts jumbled together in cases, you'll like this place. You may prefer a more interesting narrative with useful information about the story of the area, perhaps a working media display? It really wouldn't take much to make this place more cohesive and I hope someone does.

The ticket was not very expensive, there is a discount for students and children. The objects are in good shape and well preserved. They paint a clear picture about the crafts and people of Brasov. It was a pleasant experience

This is a must see museum of a sensitively reconstructed urban dwelling that shows the evolution of Brasov's cultural and commercial development over many centuries. Don't miss the top floor for excellent information of the natural environment as well.

A small museum divided into two levels.The upper level is devoted to the last 400 years whilst the lower level is devoted to prehistoric and medieval times.The museum gives a real insight to Brasov's development throughout the centuries.

The movie at the beginning of the tour lets you experience Brasov from the perspective of the first settlers. Move on to the exhibitions and learn of the artisans’ and tradesmen’s contributions to the development of the city. Learn about the businesses that made Brasov and become inspired.

We hadn't read anything about this museum beforehand but just stumbled on it. A great discovery. It's small with some really lovely items and gives a good sense of the history of the city. But then we're partial to intimate museums of this kind.
