BUCHAREST HISTORY MUSEUM

The inner glass, in front of the stairs was brought from Murano. Thus, Bucharest Museum became a more interesting building for the boyars of the time. The owner’s mark was carved at the entrance but it was removed due to the conspiracy Sutu was part of in 1864 against Alexandru Ioan Cuza. In the late 19th century, the house is the heritage of a Sutu’s nephew, Grigore Sutu who will build a greenhouse and a place for birds just where The University of Bucharest can be seen today. This palace became one of the most visited places by local aristocracy for parties, musical and literary meetings.

BUCHAREST MUSEUM AND UNIVERSITY SQUARE

After Grigore Sutu died, the building where now you can visit Bucharest Museum was sold and became the headquarters of the Town Hall in 1932. Ten years later iti will house the House of Economics, the state bank, now CEC. Bucharest Museum came into being here in 1956. It will be renovated between 1957 and 1958. So, now, one can notice the Romantic influence in architecture. We are talking about 4 towers on two sides of the building. At the entrance there is a metal and glass construction, as a piece of history, for in the 19th century this was the style for all boyars’ houses. Inside, you will see a monumental hall with the stairs that divide the palace.
