Museum Highlights

The museum has two must-see collections—the priceless jewels in the National Treasury Hall, which include the Romanian crown jewels, and the Bronze Age relics in the Lapidarium—but there’s plenty more to see. Additional highlights include a full-size replica of Trajan’s Column in Rome and a much-derided 21st-century bronze sculpture of a very naked Emperor Trajan holding a wolf, which stands on the museum steps.
