Housed in the former 1900 Post Office building is one of
Bucharest's most important museums, the National History Museum.
Spread throughout 41 rooms the exhibits recount the country's
development from prehistoric times to the 1920s. The highlight is
the basement National Treasury crammed with a dazzling display of
gold, jewellery and valuable Neolithic curios. It is the biggest
and best museum in the country and affords an excellent opportunity
to get to grips with the exciting history of Romania.
