|Collection(s)||The museum is located in a historic monument building. Iancu de Hunedoara built the castle in the early Renaissance style of the first Italian bulwark system type. It was restored during the 18th century. The north facade, damaged by the Hungarian revolutionary army, was restored in 1856. In 1872 the History and Archaeology Society was established in Timişoara and they began to collect historical material. In the interwar period the history and archaeology collections grew. Huniazi Castle has housed them since 1947.
The permanent exhibition presents archaeological material on the Neolithic, Daco-Roman periods and the Middle Ages.
The museum owns goods listed in the National Cultural Heritage Treasure.|
