Museum is located in old historic of Bucharest. Historic and nice ornate decoration, the museum is a timeline of city history through the ages. Some nice exhibits and accompanying photographs make it a very enjoyable and interesting museum to visit. Recommended

The whole place is available to visit for 5 ron, (~1€) for students, which is crazy affordable especially for what you get to see. If you're unfamiliar with the formation of the Romanian nation, or the hardships of communism and the revolution of '89, you...More
