The Museum is divided in 3 parts: Old Romanian Art, European Art and Modern Romanian Art. To see the entire museum it's a long task, we've visited it in 2 occasions: once for the European part in about 4 hours, and once for the old and modern Romanian part - about 3 hours.

Valuable collections of Romanian and European painters, decorative arts, sculptures belonging to Brancusi and Paciurea. The museum is housed in the former royal palace. Not to be missed a visit to the throne room. For guided tours you have to book in advance.

The museum has more parts and you don’t have to visit it all. If you want to better understand the Romanian art, it is necessary to visit this museum. The other sections of the museum are also worth visiting.

Impressive collections of Romanian Medieval Art, the later centuries well represented. I made quite a few discoveries, artists of the 19th and early 20th century I had not heard of before and who are very good. Also a good collection of European Art.

This is a really fascinating collection, housed in a beautiful building. Very interesting to see an Eastern European take on familiar movements in Art. As well as paintings and sculpture this museum also contains an eclectic mix of collections including ceramics, netsuke and bohemian glass. Laid out as a series of rooms reflecting the original donors.

While it was stuffy on the Romanian Art side, there were many interesting paintings. I wrote down the artists we particularly enjoyed and plan to look them up on the internet. On the European side of the museum, there were a few good paintings by well known artists.

This museum offers a huge collection consisting of two exhibitions: one of medieval art (which mainly consists of religious objects i.e. icons, garments, etc.) and one of modern art. The medieval one is interesting but kind of one-sided, the modern one also offers a huge amount of paintings and sculptures. For me as an amateur on the field of art... More

I'm not a huge art fan but the medieval art and Romanian art was truly fascinating. Take the time to read the info cards in each of the rooms and you really get a good history lesson of Romania in art. I paid for the European art collection too but I didn't have the time to visit that gallery the... More

Has a wide variety of art from different countries and artists. Includes pieces from more famous artists as well. Nothing is behind glass so you can really get up close and study the paintings. The Romanian side is actually very interesting and has more pieces than the Romanian National Museum of History. If you have the choice to only go... More
