The Cotroceni National Museum combines the characteristics of a memorial space that holds a history of almost 350 years with those of a museum of decorative arts. Its permanent exhibition focuses on both medieval and modern heritage, presenting cultural goods that belonged to the Cotroceni church, creations of famous artists from the 17th and 18th centuries and artifacts owned by the royal family of Romania. The museum is housed in the Cotroceni Palace, a historical monument which represents Romanian architecture of the late 19th century.

The emphasis is on the intrinsic value of various artworks, but also on their connection with the personalities that once lived there, such as King Carol I and Queen Elisabeta, King Ferdinand I and Queen Marie of Romania. The permanent exhibition includes numerous decorative art objects, from furniture pieces in Neo-Romanian style to pottery made by renowned European manufacturers, Art Nouveau glassware and oriental carpets.
