Although a relatively small place, you can get a great sense of the world which used to be the reality of villages around this area. Costumes, tools and pictures show you how Transylvanian peasants used to live, work and celebrate, which even today occurs in some remote places.

As the daughter of a Transylvanian Saxon Dad who was born in Bistritz, Transylvania, then part of Hungary but now part of Romania, it was great to visit this museum to imagine what it must have been like for my relatives to grow up in the Carpathian foothills and basin, mostly as Saxon farmers and merchants. The exhibits were well organized, with artifacts of everyday life displayed, such as for fishing, weaving, cooking, etc. They had a nice display of the various types of pottery from the different ethnic regions, a small display of musical instruments, an amazing display of embroidered and colorful clothing in a mirrored gallery that made me wish someone from Madison Avenue would come to be inspired, and maybe we'd see these types of outfits strolling down the catwalk at the next fashion show!!!! I wished that I could buy some clothes like these somewhere!!! It is my favorite kins of museum, I prefer information about folk life over royalty any day.

The museum is a bit hard to find. It is a bit out of the city. It is very big and there is english translation of the informations
