What on earth this is billed as an art Museum for I fail to understand ! Downstairs is a load of stained glass pictures of Christ and then upstairs is just a load of cabinets filled with old clothes so not really sure what it's all about ! No pictures allowed but I took them on phone !

So lovely, it would be better if they had the information in multiple languages to make it more accessible to wider audience however the items they have are stunning and show a lot of the local history. Beautifully crafted clothes are a must see for anyone visiting and wanting to see local culture.

Entrance is cheap, 5 lei, if I remember correct. But if you want to take pictures, you'll have to pay an additional 20 lei and that's a lot. The museum has lots of traditional clothing, pottery, paintings and more arranged by area. Very interesting. Though it's very small. We were out in 20 minutes.

With a range of craft skills on show this museum has some interesting exhibits, especially for people who are arts and crafts minded. Others get a chance to take a glimpse at a side of Romanian culture which helps you better understand their world.

I had some spare time and I went to visit the old town part where I found this nice museum. Clothes, furniture and much more since long time ago. One hour back in grandpa's shoes !

This museum is a treasure from outside to inside. Architectural interest and then a warm friendly welcoming awaits. The museum represents many regions with their folk costumes, handicrafts, household items and religious artifacts. And OH those beautiful painted Easter Eggs are truly special. And don't forget to look upward at the ceiling paintings. It is located on Tomis Boulevard next... More

If you want to be in touch again with your routes this is the place! I like the folk costumes and all the ceramic objects that where used in households. How wonderful it used to be before: magic, faith and practicality combined!
