With interesting expositions like the Roman monuments, or the Dacian Thesaurus it is an interesting museum to visit. Sometimes it is host to international expositions (e.g. an exposition of Chinese history, including terracotta soldiers). Considering the fact that it is located close to the Old City you can go to lunch / dinner after visiting the museum.

The museum is the happy owner of beautiful remnants of the Roman era, as well as of several artifacts. However, they do a bad job of bringing history to life. There is not really the ambition to tell the story of Romania, it's rather just an exhibition of items.

In the basesment vault are Romania's national treasures which are worth a look but the rest needs a more dynamic approach to engage the visitor.

After you "hang out" with the statue of Trajan and the She-Wolf in front, the museum itself is worth an hour or two to explore. When I visited there was a large exhibition on Kings Carol and Ferdinand in the 19th and early 20th century. Royal regalia aside, it's a reasonable introduction to the period. It can be a bit...

Great treasure from the roman era. Too bad the museum was closed too soon (maybe because it was a Saturday). The outer part of the museum is more related to the Royal family, though I would be more interested in Romania's history from the antiquity.

If you ever visit Bucharest, this is a great place to be. It is nice for every age and is far from a boring old museum. It is a place where science and history combine to create interest and culture.

I thought this museum was the best attraction in Bucharest. On the main floor were period costumes that were very well presented. On the next level down was the Trajan's Column exhibit which showed numerous scenes of the conquest of the Dacians by the Romans. The final exhibit we saw was the jewelry exhibit. THIS WAS FABULOUS!!! The exhibit started... More
