    We went by what they had read on the internet. The room where the union of Transylvania and Romania was signed. It is a room where you can find photos from the era, some memories, a bit of the history of Romania. Perhaps for a Romanian means much more for a tourist like me. You take 15-20 minutes to see it, the pass is free.

  • Ostensibly, this is one of the most historic places in Romania: the hall where the union between Transylvania and the rest of Romania was decided. But instead of providing an adequate explanation and a relevant display, the place is full of dusty, haphazardly-collected set of exhibits all attempting to show how the ethnic Romanians have been in Transylvania for centuries, in what smacks of an effort to protest too much. The main hall displays huge portraits of King Ferdinand with no explanation or context. And it also houses irrelevant temporary exhibition panels; when I visited it in August 2016, it had an exhibition explaining how to tell fake gold from real (!). Nothing about the political context to the Union, the people behind the event, or its world-wide implications, despite the fact that huge amounts of material exist. A massively missed opportunity to educate people about the history of Romania; all you get is a massive hall with random exhibits, a few fading black-and-white pictures of Romanian peasants and some scattered dusty pottery. Heartbreaking for someone who appreciates and loves Romanian history. Ah, yes: the website of the museum managing the Hall was last updated in 2015!
