Telki Castle in Coltau was probably built in the time of Maria Theresa, which means that Teleki János raised it. His stepfather, the great traveler Sándor, was the most famous master of the castle, who obtained the building from his parents at the age of 25 years.

From his journeys he came home with valuable things, the walls of the house were covered with valuable paintings. Several drawings with Victor Hugo's signature, a collection of weapons, documents, porcelain decorated the house. For the last part of his life he moved to Baia Mare, according to his last wish here he was buried in the castle park. The children kept the castle pump until 1936, then they had to leave the country. The clerics have emptied the castle of all that remains after the departure of the masters. After the war the castle was populated with refugees.

After the nationalization, the castle was turned into a place of entertainment, the spiral staircase disappeared. A period of time was CAP headquarters and a warehouse, then a school. Now there is a museum where there is a room for folk art, a Telki Memorial Room and a Petőfi Room, where all the memories left after the honeymoons of young married are shown.
