You can't miss this place when you come see Craiova. The building in which the museum is located is a beautiful palace close to the city centre, and mostly empty so there is no need to deal with crowds or long waiting lines. The permanent...More

Ok.If you have to spend two hours and don't know what to so you have a reason to visit it. You cannot compare it to great museums like Uffizi or Louver. It is like local storage.. Some nice caricatures.
