Very enjoyable museum, however there was a distinct lack of English language signage so had to guess what some of the exhibits were.

If you like Romanian Soups, here is the best place to go. They have a special menu for lunch which costs only 4 EUR.

There were some really interesting exhibits here - in particular three reconstructed buildings - a church, a log cabin, and (the skeleton of) a windmill! There are lots of costumes and other artifacts. The only off-putting thing is that you are constantly watched by the staff who pounce on you if you try and touch anything! Photography is extra -...

Hosted by a very special building erected in interwar period after the plans of the Romanian architect N. Ghica Budesti in the stzle of the Romanian monasateries this excellent museum is reminding also of the communist era as it was before 1989 the history museum of the Romanian Communist Party.

At 8 lei you can't really go wrong with this museum. It's a bit of a mix of everything from clothing to a wooden church and photo's. It gives a bit of an insight in life of the common romanian. Worth a visit.. the only thing it should improve on is explaining things in english.

Well situated in an imposing building the museum doesn't quite live up to its surroundings. The exhibitions are large and often very nice to look at but explanations are often thin on the ground. In particular, I really enjoyed the windmills and church exhibits as well as all the clothing but I didn't leave feeling I had learned very much.... More

Nice museum if you like traditional romanian clothes and customs. The museum looks a little bit dated, but still worth a visit.

We initially entered the wrong building and wandered around until a staff member saw us and led us out of the building and into he correct one. (That's how the Romanian people are!). The museum is housed I. A beautiful building and contains many beautiful garments from the various regions of Romania. Information sheets were available in each room which... More
