The Museum for National History and Archaeology

Situated in the old center of Constanta, the building itself is a remarkable example of Romanian architecture. It was built in 1921, to host the city hall of Constanta. In 1977 it became headquarter of one of the richest museums in Romania, holding an impressive heritage of over 430,000 artifacts. It now displays several Greek-Roman collections and various artifacts, dating from prehistory to contemporary times. Another important part of this museum’s exhibition is open to the public in a nearby protection building, which shelters and preserves the ruins of a great Roman-Byzantine edifice, whose largest hall was paved with a colorful geometric mosaic.
