Collection(s)The building, a historic monument, is representative for the typology of the public and private commercial spaces, in Transylvanian towns between the 16th and 19th centuries. It was first documented on 21st of December 1512, when 200 florins were allotted for the endowment of the town pharmacy and the pharmacist Johannes had his tax paid by the town for the house that was used both as home and pharmacy. Restored in 1566, according to the inscription on the stone door frame, the house was evaluated in 1572 at 450 florins and 40 dinars. The building, attached to the neighboring building, stands on 3 levels. The appearance of the mediaeval house, facing the town square, with outer arches supported on pillars, originally designed as spaces for selling the goods of the merchants and the members of the guilds in Braşov, changed around 1800, when the portico was replaced, and the front of the house advanced about two meters towards the market. The building retains 80% of the original substance, between 1993 and 2008 the consolidation and restoration were carried out. It will illustrate the following themes: lapidary, cellar with merchandise (the 17th – 18th centuries), Braşov inn (the 18th century), child's room (the 19th century), Patrician room, milliner’s shop, embroidery shop (the 19th century), photographer workshop (the 19th century).
