We visited on the last weekend of the month when it was supposed to be free... but still paid 10 lei each... the building is impressive and the diorama of WW2 is interesting. Rest is so so. Not a must see really.

We worth seeing (10MDL entry) - for the building itself as well as the exhibits. Thre is much very old stuff, which reinforces how important the country was centuries ago, as well as more recent exhibits.
