  • By far this is the most beautiful building in the city. Now there are 4 museums opened permanently and some exhibitions temporarily. This is defenceless on the to do list while in Iaşi.  more »

  • Great historical place, beautifully restored. It has a great permanent exhibition of a lot of cool stuff from medieval and classical times but more importantly it is a frequent host for many other temporary exhibitions of art, antique culture, medieval devices etc. It always seems to have a temporary exhibition besides its normal one which makes for a great reason to keep coming back since everytime you visit you will see something new and interesting wrapped around in a beautiful palace. I have not included any pictures of the exhibitions, only the palace itself.
  • Beautiful outside and in. The galleries are a bit small. Consider expanding them with some international art as well and maybe opening up the other two thirds of this beautiful place.
  • Definitely worth visiting. Interesting museums inside, exterior is awesome as well.
  • Awesome place in Iasi. Must see if you are a tourist or you want to see a great museum! Just awesome!
  • Art section amaizing. less other sections
