Interesting historical exhibit. Great art! Lady at the front desk made me feel a little uncomfortable when she tried to refuse my Romanian Lei. The curator cleared things up. Beautiful architecture. Not crazy busy where you can't take your time and enjoy.

Amazing building , newly renovated . worth a visit at day and night , also worth taking a walk around the building and see the nice gardens and lawns all around . the Palace area is full of locals which spend their evenings walking,reading or just hanging out. we've went there almost every night and it was worth it .

A beautiful palace turned into a boring museum!!! We expected a tour full of beautifully decorated rooms, bathrooms, halls etc... Instead, we were shocked to find out that most of the Palace is restricted for visitors, and that we can only tour a small fraction of the place, which was newly renovated with white paint and modern boring lights -...

While in Iasi, immerse into Moldova's history, traditional architecture and superb exhibits. Built in a Neo-Gothic style in 1925, it was recently restored to its original glory. Remember to buy some postcards....

Great arcjtecture to see from the outside. It dominates the whole area. Very interesting to see the inside as well, including the watch tower, where they show you and give a good explanation of how the watch works. The art museum is not worth the money at this stage, only two rooms were open, which included only romanian paintings, some... More

Outside it is more amusing than from inside, however there is cool and interesting history inside the Palace walls! Need to know the people who work there to get the perks! Nothing was in English as well! Needed a translator.

Recently renovated and a major feature of any visit to Iasi, itself a city of real culture. There are a number of specialist attractions to visit some of which are unique. Romanian history is professionally displayed and I would recommend strongly.

When you visit the Palace of Culture you begin to feel like old wayfarers that reached a new place and don't know how to really describe it. I can tell you that this building is absolutely wonderful. You can come with friends, family and little ones and they will all feel good. You shouldn't miss the chance to take a... More
