Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beautiful place with such rich history ! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and we learned quite a lot from him. The museum itself has quite a few artifacts from the time period and is a authentic reflection of those times.

Great place to visit but you need several hours to take everything in. Very informative with signs in English too. Lots of snack bars in the surrounding areas do you can make a day of it.

We stayed in Cartisoara 4 nights, between 2nd to 5th january 2018 and planned to visit this museum. My daughter was really anxious to see it and listen to Badea Cartan's story, but we never succeeded.
Even if it was open in theory, practically the gate was always closed during our stay. A neighbour helped us by calling the administrator, but he could not tell us when he will open the museum.
This experience was dissappointing!

It is a museum that is in Cartisoara village, near the road to Balea lake.
It is worth to visit the museum that represents the man that among other trips walked to Rome and promoted the Romanian culture.

The visiting hours and days are not so accesible, so first have a look at the scheddule on the internet.

A small museum in the countryside about Badea cartan.
Badea Cârțan (roughly: Brother Cârțan – the common nickname of Gheorghe Cârțan; 24 January 1849 – 7 August 1911) was a self-taught ethnic Romanian shepherd who fought for the independence of the Romanians of Transylvania (then under Hungarian rule inside Austria-Hungary), distributing Romanian-language books that he secretly brought from Romania to their villages. In all he smuggled some 200,000 books for pupils, priests, teachers and peasants; he used several routes to pass through the Făgăraş Mountains.

It is not the house of him and a lot of the exhibits are only reproductions that depict the life at that time.
It is a very interesting dive in the life of Badea Cartan a self literate and a supporter of the union between Transylvania and Romania.
It is also a dive in the mid 19th century life of the peasants from that area.

Badea Cârțan (roughly: Brother Cârțan – the common nickname of Gheorghe Cârțan; 24 January 1849 – 7 August 1911) was a self-taught Romanian shepherd who fought for the independence of the Romanians of Transylvania (then under Hungarian rule inside Austria-Hungary), distributing Romanian-language books that he secretly brought from the Romanian Old Kingdom to their villages. In all he smuggled some 200,000 books.

Cârțan made a journey on foot to Rome in 1896, and when he arrived at the city's edge after 45 days, said, "Bine te-am găsit, maica Roma" ("Pleased to meet you, mother Rome"). He wished to see Trajan's Column with his own eyes, as well as other evidences of the Latin origin of the Romanian people. After pouring Romanian soil and wheat at the column's base, he wrapped himself in a peasant's coat (cojoc) and fell asleep at the column's base. The next day he was awakened by a policeman who shouted in amazement, "A Dacian has fallen off the column!", as Cârţan was dressed just like the Dacians carved into the column.

He was buried in Sinaia, on soil belonging to independent Romania (Transylvania still being seven years away from its post-World War I union with Romania); on the stone cross atop his grave is inscribed the phrase: "Aici doarme Badea Cârțan visând întregirea neamului său" ("Here lies Badea Cârțan dreaming of the unity of his people").

Badea Cârțan was a peasant and this is a village museum that not only keeps his memory alive but also the spirit of a romanian village.
