  • A nice museum. I recommend to visit if you are around. Its worth it
  • The museum is housed in a national monument building, former city hall of Constanta before world war 1. It's located in old town, oversees the statue of Ovidiu and the main square. It has unique pieces of historical artifacts, such as the thinker of Hamangia, Glycon the snake god and the earthly remains of an ancient roman woman, mammoth tusks and various other unique artifacts with strong connections to the history of Dobrudja. Must see and visit for any tourist. The setting and atmosphere of the museum will surely leave a lasting impression on anyone.
  • A great museum about ancient history of Romania
  • Went for a visit. Very well equipped, a bit unexpected.
  • nice museum and location. still needs improvement.
