  • Worth the time. The priest working there is a very intelligent hardworking man full of knowledge. He is able to say so many about the exposition. It just gives good past vibes. 100% should visit and donate.
  • The host is an amazing guy who has a lot of history knowledge. I totally loved the host and the way he presented the museum.
  • Best place to see in Brasov. They have charismatic geezer who is working there for 50+ years. There is a lot of history there and genuine old books, maps.
  • This is a great place. Maybe one of the greatest I have ever seen lately and mostly because of the man who takes care of it. His name is father Oltean and he is a great person. He has discovered most of the old books that are displayed there and he tells the visitors a story for every corner of that old school. This is a mus see when visiting Brasov. It is a place that shouldn't be missed. It is located near the old church St. Nicholas in Unirii square.
  • Great part of Romanian history, guy working in museum is really educated and interesting. If you are walking around Brasov, be sure to stop by.
