The etnografic museum is a small museum where you get a small but good overview over traditional costumes and handcrafted goods of romania.

Everything from agricultural tools, battle weapons, traditional art, photographs, home furnishings, and my favorite... the clothing display! Helpful packet guide in English as well. I really like the "touch and learn" section.... that's not common for museums ;)
