This museum is full of information about the history of Bucharest, but suffers from the usual style of corridors and small rooms stuffed with facts, and no place to sit down. For me the best bit was being able to watch lots of short films...More

The museum is very interesting and covers all of Bucharest's history. There are also a lot of old maps which, from my point of view, were very interesting and showed how small and underdeveloped was Bucharest only 100 years ago.

The municipal museum is located in a beautiful old palace, the Palatul Sutu. We paid 5 Lei per person to enter. It is a small museum with and old decor. The exhibition is all about the history of Bucharest and we found it very interesting.

No better backdrop could be for the engaging history of the city. The facade of the Sutu Palace is outstanding while the interior, from the elegant staircase onwards, is gorgeous. The inventive Time of the City portrays the city in reverse, beginning with the present....More

Right in the middle of town this little museum gets you a good start to Bucharest’s history. Especially the recent history I found most interesting. Very good English explanation as well.

The large building and architecture are very impressive. As a long building looks better from afar The museum charts the history of the country and the city Did not get much time to look around as it closed earlier than I expected

This museum was great for giving an overview of the history of the city. The timeline format is easy to follow, and the displays are varied to keep it engaging. The highlight, however, was our conversation with the man at the front desk (unfortunately didn’t...More
