It`s not a museum to visit. It's an old gate, dating 16th century. Looks amazing thinking if it`s age.

Worth seeing this original gate if you are in the city. Nothing to see inside as such, but you will likely pass it on the way to other sites.

This fairy tale gate, Catherine’s Gate in English, Ectaerinei in Romanian, is a spectacular gate dating back to 1559. The city’s coat of arms can be seen on the gate.

4 small towers surrounding a larger central one is an indication that the authorities in the town had the power to execute miscreants

Most people say this is a gate of the medieval town. In fact, this is only the barbican (the gate tower) of the medieval gate. The actual gate was a big fortress, around 70 metre (200 ft) long.

Note the spires on the gate. This indicates a city with the Warrant to mete out the death penalty. Picturesque and nicely restored.

Interesting. The name that was on the sign next to the gate, at Brasov, was "Porta Sanctae Katharinae."
