There is a great Arab cistern in the lower parts which must not be missed. Next door is a small picture gallery with an El Greco , a few sketches by Picasso and a small Miro. Nothing... More

A great visit, free to all EU nationals and only €1,20 for other nationals. The museum covers prehistory right up to the present. A fantastic find. Also attached is an art space on 3 floors.

A lot of archaeological items from the Palaeolithic age to Romans in the 5 rooms of the ground floor. The second floor has items reflecting production and commerce. My favourite was the clothing. There were about 15 outfits and the needlework and design was stunning some separate displays of linen undergarments. Inspirational. The basement has a pool with arches. A... More

Spent a few hours in this very interesting museum. Artifacts ranged from 13 BC to current art exhibits. Well worth the 1.5 Euro admission. You can go down to the Arab cistern within the museum.

Well displayed and documented time frames with evidence of patient research. History going back to a.D. times, and the recent influences of populations (Rumania).

Wonderful museum, free of charge. One of the few locations open and that we were allowed to visit since we were there when they were filming one of the many movies evidently made in the historic city area. Do not miss this museum with the Arab cistern in the basement. Friendly staff as well
