If you've read Elie Weisel you will immediately be moved to be in the at which he was born and spent his early years. Read "All Rivers Run to the Sea" before you visit for background information. The docent, Alex, was excellent. So sad that Jewish history in Romania is not well known. This small house contains a lot of information and is arranged as it was before WWII when a thriving Jewish population lived in Sigheti. Highly recommend.

Small but very informative and interesting. Though they were actually closed for Easter they offered to open up especially for us so we could visit, what a service! All in all well worth the visit.

Glad we went for the little walk to see the birthplace of Elie Wiesel. The place is kept as it where back in the day. Lots of photos of course.

This is a fabulous museum and one of the only places where you can get detailed information about what happened to the Jewish community in 1944. Very few locals even know that 30% of the local population was deported to Auschwitz where the overwhelming majority were immediately put to death. There is little of the original house, so the museum serves as a reminder of what Jewish life was like in Sighet. A must visit.

We’re grateful that Elie Wiesel was able to get his parents’ house and store back so that he was able to donate it as a museum. None of the furniture is original as others lived in the house after Elie Wiesel and his family were deported to Aushwitz Concentration Camp in May of 1944. However the furniture matches the period. The employee of the museum gave a small group of English speakers, a thorough history of the home and the Jews in the area which was so professional that it could have been a college lecture. Many pictures from an earlier age with the last room being totally dedicated to Elie Wiesel who won the Nobel Peace Prize.

The exhibits and the house are interesting, especially to learn more about the history of the large Jewish population in Maramures (not only Sighet but also the surrounding villages).
What made our visit truly exceptional was the historian that was 'on duty' that day. He offered several times to answer questions. We took up that offer and had a really interesting discussion with him, ending up talking about other topics of Romanian history as well. It's good that the town of Sighet has and keeps this museum with such excellent staff.

If you are passing Sighet, it's a must place. The small museum gives you an idea of the Jews life and community in Maramuresh before the Holocaust. And of Ellis Wiesel life.
