There is an ethnographic museum like this also in Oslo that brings together the homes and churches from the countryside to show modern folks how they used to live. In Romania there were homes that look Tyrolean as well as some half sunk into the ground -- actually a clever way to be warmer in winter and cooler in summer.... More

We drove past and decided to explore this museum. What a gem! The well-preserved costumes gave me an idea of what Romanians used to wear. It explained why there is such beautiful embroidery in Romania. The curator was very helpful to lead us around and explain the exhibits to us. It helped that no other I visitors were around. There...

For starters the lady at the desk did not charge us in, we're not sure why but didn't complain! The textiles are interesting as are the other objects.

The area of Brasov has a lot to offer regarding its etnography, but you won`t find much in this hall(or better said room).

We stopped in on a Saturday afternoon. We were the only attendees and were treated to a personal tour by the curator on duty. It was wonderful. Most of the interpretation is displayed in English -- very helpful. This should be a first stop for any traveler. The collection is rich and well conserved and exhibited. How amazing that the...

I enjoyed the exhibition on weaving, and seeing the working Jacquard loom (computer predecessor, if you didn't already know that) is a treat.
