National History Museum of Transylvania information
The National History Museum of Transylvania, which dates from 1859, was still closed at research time, with no set reopening date.
In these halls you will eventually again see a mummy from Egypt, lots of Roman pieces, ghoulish remains of three humans from the area’s first tombs (they were probably Indo-Europeans, as Dacians cremated corpses), and a map that tries to make sense of migration in the area.
