Emil Racoviţa Institute of Speleology Museum

Lonely Planet review

At research time, the Emil Racoviţa Institute of Speleology Museum, a fascinating collection of works by internationally renowned Romanian biologist Racoviţa (1868-1947), was moving to a new location. After joining an 1897 expedition to Antarctica, Racoviţa explored some 1400 caves and created the world's first institute devoted to caves here in Cluj. It's hoping to have an entrance at Piaţa Unirii at some point. The museum was formerly in the Biology and Geology Facility.
