“Um, wow”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Confusing - why is a small model of Trajan's column in Rome on display? Why is the first display in the 20th Century room that of some 19th Century pieces?
Lazy - at times the displays have just generalised comments which are no help at all.
Wrong - things are mislabelled. A censer is labelled a candleholder.
Strange - lights only come on in the rooms when you go - good power saving, but odd.

“The major historical museum in Moldova.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

This museum is still very much as it was during Soviet times. Limited offerings. Last time I visited, babushkas followed you around turning out the lights after you. It is nicely located but could use a serious renovation.

“Beautiful museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012

Liked the interior of the museum, really beautiful, the building itself differs much from the usual architecture in Chisinau, so worth going there!
