The Elisabeta Palace exhibition has a permanent character and operates in January-February, July-September, and October-November of each year. It is a project of Her Majesty's House Association.
The Elisabeta Palace was completed in 1937 for Princess Elisabeta, the daughter of King Ferdinand I and of Queen Marie, and an aunt of King Michael. The palace was the official residence of Princess Elisabeta until 1944, when it became the residence of King Michael until he was forced to abdicate at the end of 1947.
Between 2001 and 2017, it was an official residence of the Romanian royal family after King Michael was granted the right to use it throughout his lifetime.
