“The major historical museum in Moldova.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 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 bubbles 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!

“Recommend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2012

This country has messed-up history (quite interesting also). You would probably not dare to compare this museum with some of the others in the US or Europe but it would work as a great "intro" into the Romanian history/culture as well as the Moldovan mentality. You would regret if you miss it, esp if you think about the fee:)
