5 museums to visit in Bucharest

There are several places where you can spend your time in a quality way in Bucharest. For example, museums can be a real opportunity to enrich your general culture or to relax in a welcoming, specially designed environment. Of course, there are many such places in the capital of Romania, Bucharest, but we will stop at 5 museums that we think you should visit.

Grigore Antipa National Museum of Natural History

More than 2 million pieces await you in the Piața Victoriei area within this museum. All the pieces are grouped into zoological, paleontological, mineral, rock and ethnographic collections, in an interactive and child-friendly environment. Grigore Antipa is the founder of the museum since 1908 and has led it for 51 years, being a place not only for professional expression, but also a refuge for study. The entire ticket costs 20 lei and can be purchased online. The schedule differs depending on the visiting period, but in principle, it is open from 10.00 to 18.00. You can learn more about what the museum houses here.

The National Art Museum of Romania

The museum is organized into two permanent galleries: the National Gallery (which includes the Old Romanian Art Gallery and the Modern Romanian Art Gallery) and the European Art Gallery. It is located in the same area as the National Museum of Natural History, in an imposing, grand and cultural setting. More details, here.

MINA Museum, the Museum of New Immersive Art

This museum is the first immersive space in Romania. At the same time, the space is considered the largest new media art center in South-Eastern Europe, so it is worth allocating at least 2 hours to visit it. Within the location, both the immersive space and a special space for children are developed. It is located in the Pipera area, 3 minutes from the metro station, so you can get there quite quickly. The schedule differs depending on the day, but on weekends you can visit it until 8:30 p.m. Right now, a digital play about The Little Prince is playing where, together with technologies like motion tracking and chroma key special effects, the characters are brought to life. See more details here.

Cotroceni National Museum

It is located within the Cotroceni Palace, the seat of the Presidential Administration and has a number of exhibits that are worth seeing, especially on a guided tour. The museum itself is one of art, history and memorial, being a former princely and royal residence. You will have the opportunity to travel through time through the salons, bedrooms, dining rooms, library and other rooms of Queen Maria, crown princess and second queen of Romania between 1914 and 1927. To visit it, you need to make an appointment. You can find more information here.

The Museum of the Senses

If you want to have a shopping session after visiting the Cotroceni National Museum, you can choose to come to Afi Palace Cotroceni, because the Museum of the Senses awaits you here. Here you will notice how a series of phenomena that we are part of every day can be transformed into unique processes in relation to smells, sounds or images.
