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.

A well planned display of the history of Bucharest through time backwards. Events that came from events. The unknown for the future. This is one of the best museums I have been to ... and I've been to a lot!

Sutu Palace is a stunning and suitable home for this fabulous museum which covers Bucharest history from neolithic times through to the current day. The present exhibition takes you back in time (suitably from a starting point under a reflective clock bought by the palace's...More
