The recently renovated Palace of Culture presents to visitors with 4 main museums. The collections are few, but the museums are worth visiting. The main attraction is the clock in the tower. Guided tour, 7 people per round, at fixed hours.

The Palace was in renovation for a long time, now is again open for visits. The external renovation is impressive, there is more work to do in the interior. The spaces are not well marked, so you need to find your way for the museums....More

We visited two of the four exhibitions (the history exhibition was closed unfortunately) and have to say that they did not match the grandeur of the building they were situated in - very disappointing. The palace and garden is well worth a walk around though.

This palace with his neogotic style, with his 4 museums is a must if you travel in Iasi. History, Science and technique, Art and Ethnographic has everything you need if you are alone or with friends, or family, in order to have an excellent day.

Great place, great experience! A very impressive building newly renovated. Impressive museums inside. When i was there the most interesting section, for me, was the Leonardo da Vinci machines. But all the museums inside deserve time to spend!
