We arrived 45 minutes before closing time so the guards were not pleased to let us in. The museum has 3 floors of walls covered in ancient maps, truly a treasure. I was disappointed that the few explanations posted throughout were not in English. Would...More

Well I can't say I'm a map enthusiast but I'm sure if you were you'd never get out of the place! So from a layman, it was amazing to see how the geography of the counties has changed in line with the dates of the...More

The Museum is located in a picturesque neighbourhood of downtown Bucharest with its streets named after capital cities of the world. Collection of maps is impressive in term of its number and diversity. Really a winner for the lazy weekend vibe.

This is a relatively small museum with great potential. You can really enjoy especially if you are passionate of history. It is worth a visit!
