If you are interested in history then you can find here a lot of things. The museum is recently rehabilitated and looks very modern. The guide offers you information about WWII and Cucuteni Civilization which is more than 6000 years old.

I absolutely enjoyed it! It starts of by exploring the Cututeni civilisation and culture, and carries of by presenting the University's Faculties with their assets and achievements. A huge thank you to those who made this possible, for the lovely experience!

The University Museum is in the same building with Cucuteni Civilisation Museum. I was very impressed by the guides here and how the museum was renovated and the presentation of both exhibits. There is free access to both museums.
