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.

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.

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

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!
