No information in English, German or any language other than Romanian - especially disturbing as Transylvania is an area historically inhabited by more people than the Romanians. Generally, would benefit from bringing the story into the 20th century - discussing what happened to the minoritites, etc.

Interesting collection of artifacts! I especially liked some of the random everyday items (medical instruments, cooking tools) that have really come a long way!

The Clock Tower is the most important objective in Sighisoara. There is lot of history and knowledge in that tower, and lot of distraction, too. Enjoy!

On the way to the top of the clock tower, we passed through the history museums. You can see some interesting artifacts, but not something extraordinary. The main attraction remains the view from the top.

the view from the top is rewarding but not much else...the rest is creaky floors and a bunch of old stuff which I didn't find too interesting.

If you are taking a trip to Sighisoara you must go visit the small rooms inside the museum. You can see the evolution of crafts in Transylvania, ethnographic artefacts, furniture, medical instruments, fine arts and a collection of clocks. :)
