This was our first site to visit in Chișinău. It's a big museum with both temporary and permanent exhibitions. Some of the exhibits are quite good, we deeply liked the collection about the deportation. Some leftovers from USSR period can be seen. Unfortunately, the ladies...More

It was great to look at the history of Moldova and some relics that were collected during the different periods of time such as Iron Age or Roman Empire. Very impressive. I would recommend this place.

This museum boasts some of the most interesting artifacts on Moldova, incl. a 500.000 year old stone dagger and the most important finding from Orheiul Vechi. Definitely a must-see for any culturally interested traveler.

This museum holds quite of a good collection, but what is missing are more English description. But even without understanding, I'd say museum is worth the visit. You can buy a photo permit, for a symbolic fee, I suggest you do so. If for nothing...More
