The Museums from Brasov, Art, Ethnographic, Muresenilor House, the History Museum and the Urban Civilisation Museum are a mirror, a development of the cultural-historic patrimony of Brasov. Visitors can see "the jewels of the crown" in these museums in the historical houses from the Old Town Brasov. Historians deal with top level scientific projects and rebuilding of the "Historical Library" of the city, a unique and ambitious project.
The Administration of the History Museum informed about the intention to arrange another exhibit, following the lines of the most appreciated museums in the world, one that would draw even more tourists. The Manager of the History Museum of Brasov, Mr. Nicolae Pepene, declared: "The number of visitors at the History Museum is 47% higher than in 2013. Considering that the Black Church from Brasov has 250,000 visitors per year, this should be an example for us to follow and to achieve implementing an expositional policy to determine as many tourists as possible to come visit us. This is achievable and all the details already make the object of an expositional project to be implemented. This will be a surprise for the people in Brasov, and also for the tourists coming here".
Historical houses development
The History Museum is inside of the Council House, a historical monument built in 1420. In its turn, the Council House is part of some historical development surrounding the Council Square, dated since the 16th-18th centuries, some of them still having arches on the profile rock pylons and interiors with arches decorated with vegetal-floral and figurative mural paintings. Most of these houses are listed as patrimony buildings.

Brasov is one of the most reinforced urban centres in Transylvania of the Middle Ages and has a rich cultural heritage including more than 400 sites listed in the Historical Monuments from Romania: sites, complexes and independent buildings, the most representative of them being the Citadel around the town. Nearly 20% of these have national and universal value.
