  • This museum offers in some dAys, free entry like on the national day of Romania, and other celebrations for everyone. This is a good thing for people who d ont have money to visit al of the museums. 
  • Despite being rather small is quite interesting, there is student discount and therefore only paid 5RON what is a bargain. Ideal for those who want to "spend" a horita.

  • Great Museum. Small enough to see in a few hours so you don't get overwhelmed, but big enough to hold your interest. Right on Ovidius Square, easy walk from the Cathedral of St Peter and Paul.

  • History, education. Nice emplyees
  • expensive, unfriendly and claustrophobic
