Very nice collection representing Romania’s history from the Stone Age through the recent past. Lots of models of forts and castles, lots of weapons and reconstructions of armor and uniforms. Very little signage in English, so some advance understanding of local history will serve you...More

I think there's a lot of stuff to see, ranging from weapons, outfits, cannons and tanks. I think it's well managed, well kept and quite diverse.

Easy to find museum, with everything from Bronze Age to WW1, WW2 and beyond.. and incredible collection of artifacts found in Romania and many many military medals... a really vast collection, not all descriptions in English, worth a visit !!

Wow, I was blown away by this fabulous museum. wonderful displays including 3 of only 11 known Roman Golden Helmets. Several life size dioramas, probably the world's largest collection of military medals and decorations.

A little ‘off the beaten track’ but well worth finding and visiting. Entry was fantastic value for money at 16 lei for an adult (less than £4), there is lots to see. Be sure to take cash, as cards aren’t accepted. Not all the displays...More

The National Military Museum is a great place to spend a couple hours, if military history interests you. The displays are well done, although many are lacking descriptions in English, and I'm sure a guided tour could probably offer some context. My teenage sons love...More

Well worth a visit. Not crowded. Older boys interested in Military will love it. Agree most notes are not surprising in Romanian but there is a smattering of English. They will be enthralled with swords guns uniforms etc. excellent displays. The outdoor area is huge....More

Not too far off the beaten path is the military museum. It is housed in a 3 level building and has some fine displays of military history in Romania – from flint arrowheads that are thousands of years old, to swords, axes and maces…it basically...More

In short, taxi is your best bet. I made my way there on public transport, but it was a 10min walk from where we got off the tram. Be wary of getting ripped off by taxi drivers in Romania though. Also worth noting that... More
