Spent a couple of hours here on a a Saturday morning. Go early if you want to miss the large groups. Make sure you stop by the torture exhibit if you need some shock therapy.

I grew up in this city and even if I visited several times the museums inside the Palace it is always a pleasure to return with visitors; my favorite is the ethnographic museum, you can discover how Romanians lived a couple of centuries ago

The recently renovated Palace of Culture presents to visitors with 4 main museums. The collections are few, but the museums are worth visiting. The main attraction is the clock in the tower. Guided tour, 7 people per round, at fixed hours.
