  • Genuinely one of the most interesting museums I've ever visited. Fascinating to learn about the history of Moldova and there were information sheets in English in every room. Just worth noting that the price is actually double what you might expect because you have to pay separately for the upstairs and downstairs exhibitions, but at 10 MDL (50p) each, it hardly breaks the bank.
  • Fantastic museum. Very interesting, The building is very nice. Beautiful architecture and wonderful displays of history. It must be visited not only by tourists but by locals too.
