A very extensive collection of Romanian art, including a large collection of Romanian religious icons as well as more modern works. There is some, though relatively limited, amount of information available for free in the display rooms, and more information in the guide books for sale.

The museum is very beautiful inside, being the former royal palace in Bucharest and now houses a vast European art collection and Romanian art collections of the medieval ages and more modern centuries on the other side of the museum. The downside is that to take pictures, you need to pay a tax of 100 lei ($30 CAN) which we... More

This is a national treasure. This is a very large place with lots of things to see. The walk up to the palace is spectacular affording beautiful views of the city. The interior is divided into areas by era. Wonderful works from the renaissance to contemporary artists are well displayed. If you like art, you have to go

This museum has three parts. We were interested in the superb collection of European Art, but the message hadn't got through to the local guides, so we were subjected to a long talk in stilted English standing on a hard marble floor about Romanian history from the museum guide. There are separate charges to visit the European collection that includes... More

One of the best cultural sites in Bucharest. If you stay in this city, you must visit The National Museum of Art in order to understand something about the Romanian way of seeing the beauty.

As its name suggests, this is a national art gallery. That being said expect to see large collections of Romanian art from its various historical periods. This means that you will see a large amount of Orthodox Christian art, especially in the early going. This is to be expected and not criticized, especially if you know your history. The austerity...

The museum had a few El Grecos which surprised me. Most of the works are by Romanian painters and some were very satisfying. We saw all the European art and all the Romanian art in 2 hours. It is in two separate parts of the old palace. The building interior was architecturally satisfying. The paintings were well lit and well... More
