Romanian Kitsch Museum
#1 of 70 Museums in Bucharest
Castles and art museums can be found in any other city but this place is really unique and İ honestly think it's a MUST SEE.
The museum is pricy compared to a lot of the more comprehensive museums in Bucharest, but it is worth the money for a welcome diversion.

Ceausescu Mansion
#2 of 70 Museums in Bucharest
Apart from usual list of art, natural sciences, geology, Romanian peasant and history museums, there is also a short list of very perticular attractions that are very specific to this city.
They do accept credit cards here, unlike many other museums and sites in Bucharest.

The museum was full of interesting exhibits and, although it is quite small, I think that it might be one of the most interesting museums in Bucharest.

The Art Collections Museum
#5 of 70 Museums in Bucharest
... most pleasantly impressed by their recent renovations, elevating the place to a level rivaling - in my opinion - to the best Art Museums in Europe..,Give it a minimum 3 hours - to do a minimal justice to it...
The collections also include plenty of works by Padina, Sirato, and Baba, artists who are only found to a much lesser extent in the other museums around town.
Cotroceni Palace (Palatul Cotroceni)
#6 of 70 Museums in Bucharest
One of the most interesting museums in Bucharest.It was the residence of King Ferdinannd I and his wife,Queen Maria.
The Palace is the residence of the President, but many parts are open as part of the Cotroceni National Museum which reflects the history of Medieval and Modern Cotroceni.

George Enescu Museum (Muzeul George Enescu)
#8 of 70 Museums in Bucharest
Built in French Baroque/Art Nouveau style, by my opinion, this is one of the most beautiful houses in Bucharest and certainly a place to visit (today it hosts a small museum dedicated to composer Enescu).
This fascinating museum is located in the Cantacuzino Palace, one of the most beautiful historic buildings in Bucharest.

This is a super museum that covers the history of weapons from about 5000BC to the present day, as well as the military history of Romania and the regions that preceded it.

Ferestroika
#10 of 70 Museums in Bucharest
And unlike other museums where the exhibits are behind glass, this is one that you experience through touching, sitting, trying, smelling, and feeling.
Had a great experience with this museum - Raluca helped us figure out the tickets for the same day we called, which was super helpful.

The museum is hosted by an old villa located in Dorobanti neighborhood whose architecture is really beautiful and worth itself a visit.
Entry fee included in National Art Museum ticket 50 Ron.
Peasant Museum (Muzeul Taranului Roman)

Unlike other museums in the world, each room becomes a living space where you can breathe the atmosphere of a part of the Romanian village world: the school, the church, the hearth of the house.
The National Museum of the Romanian Peasant is a museum in Bucharest, with a collection of textiles, icons, ceramics, and other artifacts of Romanian peasant life.

Muzeul National de Istorie a Romaniei
#13 of 70 Museums in Bucharest
Having been to a few history museums in the U.S. which are disappointing in terms of what's exhibited, I can say this is the real deal.
Me and my family went alone and discovered by ourselves the museum: interesting facts about World War I, followed by attractive paintings, part of Trajan’s Column (a copy) very well presented, jewelry, including R...

Housed in a neo-gothic villa in the leafy suburbs, this is unique museum will literally travel you through history and geography starting from 16th century into 19th century.
This is a lovely museum in a very beautiful house in a nice neighborhood of Bucharest - the neighborhood right behind the government building which is full of diplomatic residences.
Muzeul Theodor Aman
#15 of 70 Museums in Bucharest
This is an excellent art museum displaying a lot of works of one of the most famous Romanian painters, Theodor Aman, the founder of Romanian school of art.
If you come to Bucharest and enjoy tales about old Bucharest, painters and symbolism, go Theodor Aman Museum and take a guided tour.
Muzeul George Severeanu

... and it is filled with wonderfull ancient Greek vessels, of different shapes and from different periods, making this one of the best display of ancient pottery I have seen, other than in major European museums.

Rotenberg-Uzunov
#19 of 70 Museums in Bucharest
Casa Experimentelor
#20 of 70 Museums in Bucharest
My youngest made a good point that other science museums may have more space but no necessarily more exhibits as they put a lot of stuff in a small space.
MARe/Muzeul de Arta Recenta
#21 of 70 Museums in Bucharest
MARe is a great addition to the museums in Bucharest.
This is one of the best museum in the city, and it's a private one(maybe that's why).
Muzeul CFR
#22 of 70 Museums in Bucharest
This is the only train museum in Bucharest, and the diorama is awesome, if you like trains you should visit it.

We usually visit this museum twice a month as your kid is very passionate about planes.
The museum comprises collected aircraft / helicopters outside and two large halls inside.
National Museum of Contemporary Art
#25 of 70 Museums in Bucharest
Comprising five floors of exciting Romanian Contemporary art, this museum is a must visit for art lovers.
The museum hosts temporary exhibits mainly, so it is a matter of luck, if it's a good or bad show.
Theodor Pallady Museum
#26 of 70 Museums in Bucharest
Museum is out of the way - but if you have the main ticket, it is worth a walk through the suburbs to find.
