National Military Museum BucharestCurrently Closed
Even though the museum currently boasts a collection of over a million military items and artifacts, much of the initial connection was lost to various tragedies in the Museum's past. Still, the museum does an excellent job of chronologically depicting Romania's military history, right from the pre-Roman era days to its current involvement in the United Nations.
The periods covered include:
- Dacian kingdom
- Roman era
- Bulgarian Empire
- Ottoman empire
- Romanian rule 1877 onwards
- Allied operations during World War I
- Axis operations during World War II (with emphasis on Anti-semitic operations)
- Soviet command during World War II
- The Communist State
It's incredible how the museum manages to condense the relevance of so many artifacts and so much information in a way that is still engaging to the visitor. Exhibits include military uniforms, weapons, firearms, flags, medals, rail guns, missile launchers, cannons, airplanes, ancient battering rams and dioramas out of history.

Superb, o lectie de istorie atat de bine ilustrata si detaliata.. acest muzeu a fost o surpriza foarte placuta. Pacat ca am ajuns tarziu si a trebuit sa parcurgem totul pe fuga dar cu siguranta merita vizitat.
One of the best museums Bucharest has to offer. Thanks to the chronological order of the exhibits it is better than the National History Museum, bigger and you can get a clear understanding of the Romanian history
A great museum that showcases many different periods of Romania's military history. Highly recommended.
This place is mind-blowing. Go there before you die. 20 min walk from the centre. Exhibits are alarmed but definately touch them just to see the angry military woman come marching round the corner barking at you in Romanian. Ferocious but sexy!!!
This museum is very long and it takes about 2 hours to visit properly, but it does worth it. This museum was putted together maybe in the 80s and it remained like that. The exhibits are presented in a chronological way, but there is very little guidance text. You will not understand much if you don't have a guide. Also some of the exihibits are in a very poor state with missing parts. I recommend to go as fast as possible through the first part and go outside to see the planes and the war machines, especially if you have a child. The prices are between 4 and 16 lei(way too much).
