National Museum of Romanian History Tours

Please note: The National Museum of Romanian History is partially closed for renovations. Exhibits may move to a temporary location in the interim. The reopening is scheduled for 2021.

Standing almost opposite the Beaux-Arts CEC Palace on Calea Victoriei is the equally grandiose neoclassical home of the National History Museum of Romania. A palatial building with a regal, colonnaded facade, the museum houses over 750,000 pieces of Romanian heritage spread across some 60 displays, offering a great introduction to the country's history. Its highlights are its two major collections: the priceless jewels in the National Treasury Hall, home to the Romanian Crown Jewels, and the Bronze Age relics in the Lapidarium, holding valuable Neolithic artifacts.

Walk your way from prehistoric times to 20th century Romania to learn about the country firsthand, and to view additional highlights, like a full-size replica of Trajan’s Column in Rome and a heavily satirized and very naked bronze sculpture of Emperor Trajan, which stands on the museum steps. A popular stop on many Bucharest walking tours, it's encouraged you step inside the museum to get the most out of your visit.

Practical Info

The National History Museum of Romania is located at Calea Victoriei 12 in Bucharest. It is open Wednesday to Sunday from 9am to 5pm, and is closed on Monday and Tuesday. The closest metro stop is Piata Unirii or Universitate. Admission varies depending on the ticket, but expect to pay between LEI 7 and LEI 25 to enter the museum.

Did you know? Designed by Alexandru Săvulescu in 1900, the museum previously served as headquarters to the Poşta Romană (Romanian Postal Service), until 1970.
