The Museum of the Municipality of Bucharest, housed in the 1833 Neo-Gothic Şuţu Palace since 1956, is an institution the history of which dates back to 1921, when the local authorities decided the foundation of a communal museum of Bucharest.

At present, the museum features a miscellaneous collection of exhibits which range from works of fine art to decorative items, including articles of documentary value. Thus, visitors can admire all sorts of historical documents (of which the unchallenged highlight refers to document issued by the court of Prince Vlad the Impaler in 1459, in which the name of the city of Bucharest is fist mentioned), photographs, old maps, printings, archeological findings, vases, a picture gallery (showcasing Romanian and international works) and, of course, a splendid collection of arms. The bejeweled sword of Constantin Brâncoveanu is the undisputed attraction of the latter, given its historical prestige.
