“A bit too small”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2013

The area of Brasov has a lot to offer regarding its etnography, but you won`t find much in this hall(or better said room).

“This is a gem! Textiles are fantastic and beautifully conserved.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2013 via mobile

We stopped in on a Saturday afternoon. We were the only attendees and were treated to a personal tour by the curator on duty. It was wonderful. Most of the interpretation is displayed in English -- very helpful. This should be a first stop for any traveler. The collection is rich and well conserved and exhibited. How amazing that the large jacquard loom was fired up just for us! We will try to visit Cartisoara and Lisa based on the advice of the curator and the lovely pieces in the collection from these villages. This is a must while in Brasov.

“Working Jacquard loom”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2012

I enjoyed the exhibition on weaving, and seeing the working Jacquard loom (computer predecessor, if you didn't already know that) is a treat.
