The place to discover Romania's history at a glance
Welcome to the National History Museum of Romania!

The National History Museum of Romania, 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.
