  • I liked it there because they have different temporary expos - paintings, sculptures, valuable historic pieces- in different parts of the building. The artists are not all Romanian, so you can see different perspectives on Romanian living, culture and places. Not all expos have a physical description in English, but most of the art pieces speak their message. Also, there are events at the La Mama restaurant which is in the building. For example, you can listen to authentic Romanian music played by peasants who made their own instruments, like bagpipe from goat skin, pan-pipe, etc. I went to the Museum last Sunday with a friend from France and we both enjoyed what we saw. We have visited 4 expos, the price was 12 lei per ticket, all 4 included, so it's worth going there.
  • Bunch of stuff - minimal interpretation, no storytelling. If you have previous knowledge of Romanian culture and want to see artifacts, it’s here for you. But as someone from overseas seeking to know more about Romania, this isn’t the place to go. The cool thing is they have an entire house on display, and interesting textiles. Might be a good place to come with a local, or with a guide.
