Yes, the museum is basic, staff don’t speak English an it’s dusty but, there are some great artifacts here that would normally be in a wealthy museum ie from the Roman Period. Quite rare and amazing including the only bust of Consul Marcus Petronius Sura Mamertinus in existence. He was the son in law of Emperor Marcus Aurelius.

The Museum building is exquisite, the artifacts inside are one of a kind, but the way the building is maintained is a shame. Do go there, you have a lot to see and who know for how long you will be able to since there is such disrepair.

If you are in Constanta and decide to visit this museum, you will have a big surprise to discover the statue of Glyckon Snake, a unique representation of an ancient God. Other items hosted inside the museum are the statues of a man and his woman, known under the name of "The Thinker and his Wife," dated since Neolithic times. Also, the museum has an entire floor dedicated to Communism. When in Constanta, make sure you reserve some time for this visit.
