The National History Museum of Romania, founded in 1972, is one of the emblematic institutions of Romanian culture. The museum is housed in a historic building formerly called The Post Palace, located in the old city center of Bucharest. The building was erected between 1894 and 1899 and was designed by architect Alexandru Săvulescu (1847-1902), who drew his inspiration from the Federal Post Palace in Geneva.

For the time, due to the reinforcement works, the museum presents to the public the permanent exhibitions: Historical Treasure, Lapidarium and The Cast of Trajan’s Column, and also, temporary exhibitions on various topics, held in the Central Hall.

In the Historical Treasure hall are displayed over 3 000 valuable items, made of metals and gems belonging to civilizations that inhabited, over time, the current territory of our country, or depicting events and historical figures from past times.

In a dedicated area, especially built, are hosted a copy of Trajan’s Column, an extraordinary monument of Antiquity, and Lapidarium exhibition displaying epigraphic and architectural monuments dating from the Antique period and Middle Ages (civil monuments - documents, decrees, and honorary monuments, religious ones too - funerary and votive monuments, sculpture and decorative and architectural elements.
