Antipa Museum is one of the places I've visited during my stay in Bucharest. It's situated in a lovely part of the town and it's only 20 mintues, on the foot, away from Gara de Nord train station. It takes around 1 hour to visit the whole musem, at least in my case. Enterance for a student is only 5lei!

After its restructuration, a couple of years ago, the museum become a must-see in Bucharest. The displays are really good, with professional lighting and detailed explanation. I strongly recommend.
