It is a very nice museum, not very big but if you visit Craiova don’t miss it! The staff is friendly and if you want to make photos ask the staff before.

The museum is located in the city center, close to the university. A nice little museum, most of the exhibits are bronze. Entry ticket 10 Lei

The interior chambers makes you feel like you are in a Wes Anderson movie. But there is not munch else to admire. There are some sculpture and paintings scattered around but not worthy a visit.

Besides the famous sculptures, the artwork in this place offers a history lesson for those who might not realize how much Europe owes to the border defense put up by, and the sacrifices made by, the Romanian people in the late middle ages.

A stunning collection of artwork and sculpture from a wide variety of epochs, at an incredible reasonable price. Definitely worth purchasing the English language guide too.

Very well restored building that's worth a visit by itself. It showcases a great collection of Romanian paintings and some sculptures, among which Brancusi's Miss Pogany and The kiss stand out. Must visit it if in town and even worth a stop if nearby.
