The story of this museum begins with the passion of a student from Cluj, who out of love for the traditions and the Romanian clothing managed to fulfill his dream of keeping alive the memory of his grandparents, by keeping the old objects inherited from them.
The “Grandma’s House” museum was initially opened in the student’s grandmother’s house, but, being in an area difficult to access for visitors and with the support of the authorities, the objects were moved to a space in the center of Răcătău village, Măguri Răcătău commune. Those who arrive here can admire authentic objects, collected with a lot of effort and involvement: plates, towels, kerchiefs, national costumes, bags, traditional objects used for weaving, decorative pillows with traditional motifs and many other objects that illustrate the old days.
“When I first opened the museum to the general public, I felt a sense of joy and fulfillment, knowing that something beautiful had come out of my hands, a small museum that would delight and alleviate the childhood longing of many visitors.” – Tudor Mihai
