It's an amazing museum which was built at the end of XIX century in an oriental style so it is considered the oldest museum. It is known for its rich collections of geological, paleontological, zoological, entomological, archaeological, ethnographic, and numismatic. The museum is divided into 2 parts: the first looks at the flora and fauna of Moldova and the second to the people of Bessarabia, their customs and traditions.
