The Hostenians were one of the most important communities of old Cluj, with a specific clothing, and which remained in the collective memory by the fact that they were the ones who supplied the city with vegetables. In order to preserve the memory of this community, the lawyer Jósef Bányai, a descendant of this community, built a museum.

The museum is organized on three floors, within the reformed parish on 21 December 1989 Boulevard and faithfully describes a household specific to this community. On the first floor we find a kitchen where you can find the baskets with which the vegetables were taken to the market, on the second level there is a bedroom with a bed, canvas on the walls, photos, a closet and a hanger. On the third level we find a space with photos that shows the daily life of the Hostenians.
