You need a full day to visit all the musem, for me was a little bit boring but for the ones who love art is a good place to visit. There is a free day entrance per month.

If you like religious icons then go see but if you are looking for ART don't waste the price or the time. The hundreds of churches have better art.

An extensive collection of at least seven masters' works which reflect the Romanian soul even when the settings are international.

We were staying at the Palace Athenee Hilton which is just across the road from the National Gallery, formerly the Royal Palace. After a morning of sightseeing my husband was tired so he went back to the hotel and I decided to go to the National Gallery. It was afternoon and the place was relatively empty. I wanted to see...

We decided to visit the National Museum of Art in Bucharest because it was within walking distance of our hotel. What a delightful surprise. I love medieval art and their exhibits were well done plus they had English descriptions on laminated cards in each room so we could pick them up as we entered and return them upon leaving. Their...

Well presented, small but exquisite. I liked the atmosphere, the friendly staff, the history depicted.

It's a pity not to visit while in town. Visit also on the upper part of Calea Victoriei, The Collections Museum. People from the National Museum... More

We’ve been to the Louvre and other famous art galleries in half-a-dozen countries. The collection and arrangement of the European art in this museum is in that class. It’s simply outstanding. Part of the magic is the perfect setting -- 3 levels of beautifully maintained marble architecture in the former palace. Art lovers can easily spend 2-3 hours here. We... More

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.
