There was a fascinating exhibition on Schliemann the archeologist, and some of his discoveries. Entrance fee was very cheap, and it was a pleasant walk through Timisoara to get there.

We wanted to visit the Banat Museum, but it has been closed for years and there is no sign that it will ever reopen. A great shame, as it should be a cultural highlight of the city. Our local guide was exasperated about the situation,...More

Museum is closed for restoration, but the castle is interesting itself as it is build in XV century. You can walk around to see it. Unfortunately, museum visit has to wait for some next visit.

The museum seems to be very nice, but it was closed for renovations. But, the outer arena is so nice that you can spend time there in evening and enjoy the calmness.

The museum is closed for renovations that seem to take for ever. It has a temporary exposition open at the Bastion but that is quite expensive for what it offers (35 Ron)

Banat museum is located in a Huniade castle since 1872 and hosts artifacts from Neolithic, Daco-Roman period and numismatic collections. The Neolithic Sanctuary from Parta is unique in Europe. I went to this museum many times , but now it is closed for renovations.
