We went here to get a fix of 20th century Romanian history, only to find the exhibition closed for refurbishment. However there is an extensive collection of historical artefacts and modern soviet era weapons. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

If you speak or read Romanian or are accompanied by someone who does this would definitely be an advantage as without a guide you are limited to looking at photos and exhibits and guessing much of what's written. That said the WW1 and 20th century exhibitions in the entrance building are interesting (though there appears to be no mention of... More

This museum was very easy to find on foot from the centre of Bucharest. Once through the central park it is about 15 minutes. The museum is in a very large historic building and immediately you know its a military museum due to the large number of artillery displayed out the front. I paid the entrance fee and for a...

This is a good place to get a sense of Romania's history although sadly it appears the 1989 Revolution Exhibition is no longer on display. It starts with a pre Ancient and Ancient Military history exhibition but gets more interesting in the next building which shows the Romanian Military History Exhibition and the Medieval, Modern and Contemporary Weapons exhibition.
