  1. Bucharest museums

Delegates that might also choose to explore Bucharest on their own can find below a list of the capital’s main museums that are worth visiting. We recommend checking the museums websites for opening days and schedules before purchasing tickets.

Includes The  Art Collections Museum, Theodor Pallady Museum and the K. H. Zambaccian Museum

A visit to the Museum of the National Bank of Romania is a unique and captivating journey through spaces filled with monetary, banking and cultural history, in the most beautiful building in Bucharest, as architect Ion Mincu used to say.

Founded in 1972, is one of the emblematic institutions of Romanian culture. The museum is housed in a historic building formerly called the Palace of the Posts, located in the old city center of Bucharest. The building was erected between 1894 and 1899 and was designed by architect Alexandru Săvulescu (1847-1902), who drew his inspiration from the Federal Post Palace in Geneva, Switzerland.

The history of Romanian contemporary art is presented with an equal emphasis on the documentary and artistic dimensions, on the production of culture and on the context determining it, in the exhibition dedicated to the permanent MNAC Collection, Seeing History 1947 – 2007, located on the first floor of the museum. The museum also hosts other exhibitions and events, more details being provided on their website.

Discover the home of Art, see the great works of art by classical and contemporary artists, decorative collectibles and unique watches and jewellery.

  • Cotroceni National Museum


Cotroceni National Museum was founded as a national institution under the authority of the Ministry of Culture. Therefore, the old wing of the palace was opened to the public in 1991 and the Museum was placed under the authority of the Presidential Administration. Cotroceni National Museum’s cultural heritage, through its historical and artistic value, contributes a significant portion to the national heritage. On one side, well represented and documented is the medieval heritage, which consists of the pieces belonging to the Cotroceni Church, created by some of the most renowned artists of the time. On the other side stands the modern heritage, mostly of a European origin, consisting mainly of cultural items belonging to the Royal House of Romania, but also to the Romanian elites, a testimony to their fine taste and their artistic desires.

Art Safari hosts various exhibitions of Valuable masterpieces of Romanian art, remarkable stories, impressive collections and great masters: Grigorescu, Tonitza, Luchian, Pallady, Baba, Petrașcu, Mützner, Ciucurencu, Dărăscu, Ressu, Iser, Piliuță, Stoenescu.

The Suţu Palace is one of the oldest aristocratic residences in Bucharest, as well as one of the very few buildings that have remained unchanged for over 150 years. It was built between 1833 and 1835 by Costache Suţu, according to the designs of architects Conrad Schwink and Johann Veit. The Palace’s main exhibition was redone, and was reopened on May 15th 2015. The new permanent exhibition, called “Time of the City”, aims to help visitors delve into a story-driven journey through the city’s history.

On the shores of Lake Herăstrău, visitors from all over the world have the joy of encountering a real “village”, with monuments and artifacts from the 17th century to the early 20th century. Representative buildings from important ethnographic areas have been given a second life at the National Village Museum “Dimitrie Gusti”.

The museum opened to the public in 2003 and is hosted in a beautiful villa built in the 1920’s. The patrimony of the museum consists of over 1000 works dating from the 16th to the 20th century. Among them you will find maps of the regions inhabited by Romanians and their ancestors, continents of the world, astronomical maps and city plans. Also, the patrimony of the museum includes graphic works with various subjects: landscapes, portraits, traditional costumes.

Discover how Romanians lived during the communist period and explore the most important historical landmarks from that era. Located right in the Old Town of Bucharest, “Undeva în  Comunism” is an experience that will take you through the decades of communist Romania. From historical landmarks and evocative images of key moments during this period, to interactive exhibits depicting the life under communism, step into the world you’ve heard so much about and explore it on your own through a wide range of experiences prepared just for you.
