  • Interesting place, with a lot of history shown. The only downsize is that it's maybe a little too small. But definitely worth the visit!
  • Awesome. Don't hurry, watch and read. Two most interesting floors are Guild Floor and Medical Floor.
  • The museum is arranged in the interiors of the clock tower and it is outstanding! One single observation: the light is not enough, many objects and artifacts from the exhibitions are in a poor light, you cannot see the exact details... Otherwise, wow! There you may discover an amazing museum with thousands of objects, artifacts, documents, maps and so on - and, if you ask me, all those are very interesting, including the mechanism of the clock tower - I've posted a short movie! The people are nice, polite, professional and very well intended - they will give you lots of information, great information!
  • Very interesting artifacts related to the old city. The guilds that operated in the city. Great view from the top.
  • Amazing craft and artefacts from the area, from early Neolithic to the 20th century. I'm thankful to Mrs. Voichita who shared many wonderful insights about the objects. I wish there were more people like her to share their knowledge and experience with the public. Thank you!
