There are actually two museums charging two seperate admissions and both are worth seeing. To the south, the European Collection has examples from the likes of El Greco, Ruebens, Monet, etc. but most of teh collection features fine examples from various European schools. To the north, the Romanian art is surprisingly engaging, featuring both modern and medieval collections. The building... More

Whilst it was nice apart from the entrance fees one needs to pay to take photography which is kinda a shame. I enjoyed the display of outfits and again reminds me of how was life back then. The replica of the church was a humbling experience.

For 15 RON/ Lei, (a little under $4 US) I purchased the combo ticket to see the extensive Romanian Art collection as well as the European Art collection. Both collections are housed in a former palace so don't bypass the details of the marble staircases and columns while perusing the art pieces. The Romanian art collection is displayed on three...

The museum has two wings. One is for European art, which is mostly religious and one is dedicated to Romanian art, which is well worth visiting. You can visit them separately.

Two sections: European and Romanian - both interesting. Very impressive building, well maintained and the art work well organized. Any kind of electronic guide would have been helpful. Check for schedule as the museum is only open 2 or 3 days a week - but it's free!

The National Art Museum has a large art collection of both Romanian and European artists. You can see paintings, sculptures and decorative art from the 14th century all the way up to the 20th century. Moreover, when you visit the museum, you will also be walking in one of Romania’s most well-known royal palaces, built on the place of older... More

I personally enjoy coming to visit this museum from time to time. It has 2 main wings - European art and local art. Ticket for both is 15 lei (4 euro). The museum does not allow photos at all. They host some beautiful paintings and sculptured. Unfortunately they do not really promote themselves well. If you manage to get there,... More

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
