It is not worth the money , it’s a waste of time as it doesn’t have anything related to Vlad apart from a coffin and a table .

It’s a very nice place,a little scary but you will find very good informations about Vlad Dracul. The price is good for the visit.

There's no doubt about it, this place is more of a tourist trap than a historical exhibit. It's almost tacky and the souvenirs are definitely overpriced to match. However the service and food were both excellent, so it's not a loss for a Dracula lover to come here. Would not recommend going to Sighisoara only to see this place though.

Casa Vlad Dracul is in the heart of Sighișoara citadel, about 70m from the clock tower. The three story historic building is alleged to be the birthplace of Vlad III Dracula (around 1431), now turned into a restaurant. Vlad was the second legitimate son of Vlad II Dracul, ("Dracul" indicating his membership in the Order of the Dragon). Vlad II lived in this house in Sighișoara (then in the Kingdom of Hungary), from 1431 to 1435 when Transylvania became an Ottoman tributary state during the Ottoman–Hungarian Wars. Although the building is centuries old, the interior has been completely rebuilt. The exhibit is in two fabric-draped rooms on the second floor, with portraits of Vlad III, heavy furniture, coffins and spiders scattered about. I found it disappointing. The restaurant downstairs offers traditional Romanian foods. Vlad III Dracul's alleged birthplace is open daily from noon to 8pm with an entry fee of 5 lei.

The exhibit opens around noon. Please do not come here exclusively for this, you will be disappointed. The whole experience is one jumping spider and a guy in a coffin. I suspect there were two jumping spiders but one didn’t work. It’s interesting but not what I thought it would be. There is a second room with some great statues and paintings, which was the best part of the exhibit for me.
