“Small, but worth a visit”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

This museum is worth a brief stop. It was the first school in Romania (at least that's what I gathered from the staff member, who spoke little English). They printed the first Romanian bibles there, and had some things on display. It only takes 20 minutes or so to see, but combined with the nearby church and cemetary makes for a stop well worth seeking out. The entire experience, on a quiet Saturday morning, ended up being a minor highlight in my trip to Romania.

“Take the children!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Our 7-year old twins were fascinated by the printing press and the laborious process required to carve the plates. They were also very interested in the curse placed inside the books: "He who would steal this book shall be cursed; his blood shall smear over his body, and his left eye shall dry out." (or words to that effect!)

“Neat small museum with a friendly guide”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

This place was a neat surprise and a true gem! The priest who explained things to us had an awesome sense of humor. It has very impressive manuscripts and artifacts. Would not take more than an hour and it is worth seeing.

“A gem”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

A priest greets you in the class room as a teacher, reading about your country from a very, very old school book. The visit continues upstairs where they keep under lock and key several unique and rare books. Very interesting to visit.

“Lots of old documents”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

Impressive collection of documents and artefacts. The guide is an Encyclopedia, capable of telling lots of stories and answering all the questions.
