We are Romanians, and even us would have liked a little more detailed explanations. The exhibits are quite interesting, the ones that depict life in rural Romania, and customs, but even they could benefit by more written details or even an audio guide. Other than that, we enjoyed our visit.

This museum contains plenty of information about the recent historie of Romania, especially the unification. The pieces that are shown are realistic and encourage imagination.

This is a place of great historic significance for the Romanian people - it takes 15 minutes to visit and the entry is free of charge; if you want to take photos you pay 15 RON. The building is inside the old citadel of Alba Iulia - the main attraction in the city of Alba Iulia.

Full of history and tradition. I liked it because of its architecture and because of the traditional costumes and old objects.

The building is beautiful and has an interesting history. The exhibition it holds is not so interesting. If you have a dustmites allergy, stay away!

For a place with free admission it was impressive. There were many exhibits & the self guided tour was very comprehensive.
