Opened in 1990, the Cotroceni National Museum is one of the most interesting museums in the country, where you can see representative construction techniques of the 17th century. Although it is arranged in one of the best preserved monuments in Bucharest, Cotroceni Palace, only part of the decorations and furniture are original, the rest being completed later.

The stained glass windows have been rebuilt, respecting the original style. Of original parts we can remember chairs and tables in "Art Nouveau", two statuettes made by Milita Petrașcu for bedroom Queen Mary or suit Smaranda Cantacuzino. The museum includes an important book fund and a collection of paintings.

Unfortunately most of the works from the Royal Collection Cotroceni Palace is the heritage of other museums in the country.

During the tour of the museum vist the Hall of Honor, German Living Room, Hunting Hall, Flower Salon, Library, White Salon, Royal Living Room, Elena Cuza Apartment, Little Salon, Oriental Salon, Royal Apartment, French Apartment and Queen Maria's Bedroom.

The tour continues through the Norwegian Salon, the Queen's Boudoir, the Cellars and the Cotroceni Monastery Church, rebuilt in 2008-2009 on the foundations of the old church demolished in 1948 by Nicolae Ceausescu.

The museum can be visited only by appointment and on the identity card.
