A very interesting place with an impressive collections of old maps arranged by their geographical location.The building is also very nice and placed in a quiet neighborhood, near Victoriei Square. The entrance fee is very cheap, 10 Ron/ticket. I highly recommend this place.

I enjoyed every part of it, amazing building and the staff was very friendly. You have several games to search for clues in the maps, which is very exciting. I recommend it!
