Free on the last Friday of the month
The National Museum of Romanian History is located in a beautiful turn of the century building which, before becoming a museum in 1971, was actually once the Post Office. Inside you can see weapons, archaeological artifacts and other diverse treasures from Romanian history. It's a shame that it's not more popular than it is. The museum is open Wednesday to Sunday, from 9-5:00 pm and admission is free on the last Friday of the month. In the basement, the National Treasury includes more than 2,000 objects of gold and silver embedded with precious stones. The highlight is the 4th-century Visigoth Golden Hen with Chicks, a priceless treasure discovered near Buzau.
