We didn't know that it can be so hard to buy a ticket. The Museum is collecting dust, nothing more decked out long. In itself, there is also little information. But for 25 cents admission as a student you can do nothing wrong

  • Close to all the official buildings of the country, it is a good place to see the history of the country. It is a little poor and not very well equipped. It probably needs a good renovation. It is not very populated, very few people were in it when we visited. I prefer the national museum of ethnography over this one.
  • Very affordable and fascinating destination. You can learn about thus country here. Not as polished as other museums I have visited, but definitely worth a visit.
  • They try all their best to show moldovan heritage, if you visit cisinao dont miss this place
  • This place is Fantastic. Went to here b4 Wales Won 2- 0 vs Moldova in Football. And i got to know alot about all the History of this Lovely Country.
