Local nameCasa Matei
LocationCluj-Napoca, Romania

The Matthias Corvinus House is one of the oldest buildings in Cluj-Napoca, Transylvania, Romania. It was built in the 15th century, in the gothic style, as a small guesthouse. During its history, the house served as a jail, hospital, and museum; it is now home to a visual arts institute.

Matthias Corvinus, son of John Hunyadi, later one of the most renowned Kings of Hungary, was born in this building on 23 February 1443. That time the house was owned by Jakab Méhffi, who was a well-to-do wine-grower in the city. Later king Matthias gave privileges for the owner of the building.

The house has been owned by the Art and Design University of Cluj-Napoca since 1950.
