George Enescu Museum or Cantacuzino Palace is located on Calea Victoriei no. 141, Bucharest. It was built in French Baroque, Art Nouveau style. The palace is stunning but should be better maintained. You can visit only 3 rooms without to make a general impression about architecture. I was generally disappointed but the palace let me speechless. George Enescu memorial house... More

The building is exquisite, but the exhibition is a bit poor and the building needs some maintenance... The second room was filled with posters and you can't see the architecture...

We did a walking tour on Victorei Street with our Greeter and she pointed out the Cantacuzino Palace as being the home of the George Enescu Museum and one of the nicest buildings of Bucharest . It is truly a piece of art and a good example of the French influence on the Romanian architecture !

Beautiful from the outside, but nothing special to see inside. But yes in general it is worth the visit. I recommend

We were attracted by the concept of houses from many parts of Romania over different time periods but were disappointed to find most were closed so only allowing you to see the outsides of the buildings. Those that were open were very interesting so it's a pity the rest were closed.

George Enescu is one of the most important composers of Romania, even each september famous international orchestras take place in George Enescu Festival. In order to understand a complicated man's life and mind, it is interesting to visit this museum during your enjoying walk on Victoria Street.

It is one of the most beautiful buildings in Bucharest and I took many pictures of the exterior. However, I did not go into the Museum as it was early morning and the Museum was closed. It... More

Cheap entry fee,only 6RON(less than 2 euro) but if you want to take photos you have to... More
