Why locals love it

George Enescu is the internationally acclaimed Romanian composer, celebrated by an international music festival held in Bucharest every second year. The museum is housed by one of Bucharest’s flamboyant palaces, commissioned in the early 1900s in French Neo-Baroque and Neo-Rococo style by the wealthy statesman Gheorghe Grigore Cantacuzino.

Why you should visit it

The museum gives a comprehensive overview of the composer’s life and works: photographs, musical instruments and original scores, conducting batons, dress coat, medals and diplomas. As he did not feel at home in the overwhelmingly ornate palace, he and his wife lived in the servants’ building behind the palace (open for visitors).

Special tip

Musical events are occasionally held in the palace – ask the curator to find out more.
