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.

Nice museum, you can find a short summary of Romanian history through historical maps, clothes and jewelry, swords, a replica of Traian Column from Rome, and cheep tickets also.

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

I enjoyed the area with ancient stones and columns, , and the gold and jewels collection was frankly outstanding. I also appreciated the opportunity to purchase some books from the gift shop near the entrance. Staff was friendly and there were many young students in attendance with their schools. It seems as though this building is in transition, or possibly... More

There is definitely history in this museum, but it is limited. It looks like they are working on new exhibits in the entry way so maybe that will improve things. The two main exhibits in the museum are the Trajan's Column and the treasures collection. The column is awe inspiring, but the treasures are disappointing. There is so much more... More

Our time was limited so we visited the replica of the large Roman column and walked around a few stones, then went to the gold display in another area of the basement. The gold display contains some items that were found by chance around Hungary by a variety of people (farmers, archaeologists). Many of the early artifacts were Goth and... More

I visited MNIR as a child many years ago and I have very vivid memories. Maybe the name is misleading? The Good: Trajan's Column is the permanent exhibition and it takes a good part of the floor. You get to see why Romanians consider themselves proud descendants of a great emperor. Not to be missed is the National Historical Treasures... More

The museum has three things to see so it depends on your interest. The Column of Trajan as a Roman history fan was very interesting and seeing in Darcia made it more special. The Romanian Treasure was an excellent collection of fine pieces from the ancient world up to the Royal crown The collection of clothing was less interesting but... More

The name of this museum, as other users have already said, is kind of misleading. I had expected a big exhibition including also newer Romanian history, e.g. royal Romania. However, the permanent exhibtion only seems to consist of the Traian column which did not catch my interest at all and a quite big collection of gold. Also there's a temporary... More
