The history of the Museum of Banat starts in 1872, when the newly settled ruler of the Timiș County, Ormos Zsigmond, founds the Company of History and Archeology from the south of Hungary, and starts the research on Banat's past. His collections were donated to the museum, and through his testament he left an important sum of money to the Company. During the years the Museum of History functioned in several centers; in 1947 it has moved to the Huniazilor Castle.

The examiners of the museum managed to cover the whole history of Banat, from the prehistory until the present. The collections comprise more than 468.000 pieces and they are divided into groups: archeology, numismatics, memoirs, cartography, Romanian and foreign old book, gem and cameo, and history.The Natural Science Department has more than 50.000 museum pieces, divided in several collections: rocks and minerals, paleontology, pressed plants, butterflies, bugs, exotic mollusks and birds.

In 2008, due to the renovations, only the Natural Science, the Old and the Modern History expositions are open.
