Collection(s)The museum was founded following the decision of the City Council of Bucharest from June 1921. C. A. Rosetti's donation from 1929 was the core of the stock. The museum functioned first in 115 Calea Moşilor, then in 117 Calea Victoriei, and the exhibition was inaugurated in November 1931. Dr. Severeanu was for eight years the manager of the museum. New departments were opened (numismatics, documents, city planning) and the museum heritage grew continuously. In March 1941 the museum collection was moved to 151 Calea Victoriei. In 1944 part of the collection was hidden away to the commune of Rasnic-Dolj, where a part of them remained until October 1948.The museum moved temporarily to 3 Soseaua Kiseleff, then on the 10th of December 1956 the museum was located in Şuţu Palace, and on the 23rd of January 1959 the History Museum of Bucharest City reopened to the public. Şuţu Palace is a historic monument, dating from 1834, designed by the architects Johann Veit and Conrad Schwink, who built a Neo-Gothic palace, with four polygonal turrets and a cupola, on the ruins of an earlier construction. The central hall was finished in 1862 by the artist Karl Storck and a huge Murano mirror was set in. Upon the death of the first owner, Costache Grigore Şuţu, the palace remained in the possession of his son, Grigore Şuţu (1819 - 1893). The building had various public functions during the first half of the 20th century. It was restored between 1957 and 1958, and its original aspect was regained. The archaeology collection comprises pieces from the Paleolithic, Neolithic, the Bronze Age (the Glina II and Tei cultures), Geto-Dacian ones (from Fundeni, Snagov, Popesti-Novaci, Dealul Piscului). The largest part of the collection dates from the Middle Ages: pottery, ornaments, hoards, etc. The coin, medal and seal collection includes Ottoman, Austrian, Russian hoards, seals evoking great Boyar families, medals, plaques, badges and decorations. The document collection includes documents, the earliest dating from 1488 - 1582, the Manuc stock (in the Armenian language with Turkish characters), mediaeval, modern and contemporary documents. The map and plan collection includes almost 1,000 pieces on the history of Bucharest City, on the Balkan Peninsula, the Danube course, as well as on some boyar estates. The fine art collection includes pictures, drawings, tombstones, coats of arms. The print, etching and lithograph collection includes pictures of localities from this country and abroad, of personalities, social types, battle scenes, fairs. The museum holds a historical furniture collection and households objects, a weapon collection, uniforms, flags, costume collection and textile objects (clothes, fabric samples dating from the 16th - 19th centuries, ornaments, carpets, pillows, curtains, belts, some of them discovered during archaeological excavations), the religious collection (icons, triptychs, crosses from the 17th - 19th centuries), as well as a library with 45,000 items, almost entirely literature on Bucharest. The museum holds a valuable photograph collection with archaeological excavations spots, town planning works, buildings (executed by Tudor Arghezi in 1856), aspects of city life. The museum owns goods listed in the National Cultural Heritage Treasure.
