This museum is finally settled in its new location, but it opens whimsically, despite posted hours. It’s a fascinating collection by internationally renowned Romanian biologist Racoviţa (1868-1947), who, after joining an 1897 expedition to Antarctica, explored some 1400 caves. In 1920, he created the world’s first institute devoted to caves here in Cluj.
