  • You may confuse this Museum, in downtown Cluj, with a similar one on the outskirts of the city where homes are rebuilt. This illustrates the activities of Transylvanian populations from archaic farming; in fact in some areas also currently agriculture is practised with very backward methods. Tools, costumes, photographs give an idea of the ethnographic history of the region. Small enough, the Museum may be worth a quick visit.

  • Very nice open air museum although some interactiveness would be welcomed. The tour with kids lasts maximum 2 hours.
  • The artifacts are interesting but the display, organizational and ilumination should be improved
  • Excellent temporary exhibition about migration and current changes in Romianan houses, villages and culture
  • While it does include some interesting artefacts, the museum is rather cramped and the lighting could be improved.
  • Well organised. Nice temporary expo.
