“Will be remebered!!!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

You will remember the architectural essence of this building for some time. Fine collection of musical instruments and collection of awards. It was his house which was converted to museum. A had a chance to be there on concert, and it was just amazing!

Actually the palace housing this display is really impressive, even though it is quickly deteriorating .
Its for free, at least on Sundays.

“Needs restoring”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

Go to see inside of a palace even if you have no interest in George Enescu. Say “visit” to the guards when you go in. You have to put on overshoes in here and in the little house in the garden at the back. It does however need restoring – water is dripping from the ceiling onto one of the paintings in the music room. While you are here do go into Vasile cel Mare church directly opposite.

“A 'must see' museum of Romania's greatest composer and musician”
Reviewed 6 December 2013

"George Enescu" National Museum can be found within the Cantacuzino Palace, a most captivating building.
The building was completed in 1903.

There you can find three rooms of musical instruments (including the violin be played when aged four years old), manuscripts, batons, scores, pictures, a number of documents, concert posters, medals (including the French Legion of Honor awarded to him), drawings, accolades, certificates, busts, the maestro's concert attire, the academia suit of the Romanian Academy, moulds of his hands and death mask... whilst his music softly plays in the background.

George Enescu and his wife lived in the house behind the palace, (known as "George Enescu" Memorial House) between 1945 and 1946, to carry out administrative duties. You really feel as if you have been transported back in time and are in the very presence of the Enescus in their intimate, small, humble surroundings. Everything seems untouched and very well kept. Beautiful, simple furnishings and personal effects are on display.
Take the opportunity to visit this tribute to Romania's greatest composer and musician.

“Biggest dissapointment”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

The outside part of the buliding has a very nice architecture but on the inside I expected to see more of the legacy of the great artist that Enescu was. Very poor and very badly mantained.
