Quirky and charming would well describe this unusual family museum situated across from Brasov's central square. The Casa Muresenilor is a memorial to the talented family of Iacob Muresianu, a teacher and member of the Romanian Academy who in 1850 became founding editor of the newspaper Gazeta Transilvaniei, which was a leading force in campaigning for the civil rights of Romanians in Transylvania. Muresianu's cousin, Andrei, was the editor of the newspaper's literary supplement, and is best known as the authour of Romania's national anthem, Desteapta-te Romane.

The museum is housed in the family's dynastic home, and features thousands of pieces of family memorabilia, from letters and photographs to heirlooms and keepsakes. Much has immense historical value. All of the captions are in English and Romanian, and their are also guided tours in both languages.
