The National History Museum of Romania

This is a passed by unfortunately no time to see as needed almost a day to see it all. However, have a memorable picture of my several visits to Bucharest, Romania ,and decided to have it in my blog for the memories and a reminder to visit inside eventually. Hope you appreciate the post. Therefore, let me tell you a bit about the National History Museum of Romania!

The National History Museum of Romania was inaugurated in 1972 located on the popular Calea Victoriei ,12 old center of Bucharest. The museum is housed in a building, which is a historical monument, named “Palatul Poştelor” or the Post-Office Palace).  The museum consists of about 60 exhibition rooms.

Today the National History of Romania has a rich patrimony of  over 650,000 pieces, a number that keeps increasing every year, some of them being remarkable objects , organized  in the following collections: pottery, lapidarium – tegularium , numismatics, philately, medals-seals, jewels, manuscripts, printed works, plastic arts, decorative art, historical photographs, engravings, maps, metal, weapons and equipment, textiles and furniture.

Over 3,000 wonderful pieces are displayed in the Historical Treasure. They are made of precious metals and stones and belonged to some ancient civilizations, who settled- throughout   time- on the present territory of our country. There are pieces that stand for the past events and activity of some historical personalities. The permanent exhibition Lapidariumis organized in a special construction built at the end of the ‘60s of the 20C, so that the life-size copy of the base of Trajan’s Column as well as the relief copies of this exceptional monument of Antiquity could be exhibited.
