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.

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

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
