This is a huge collection of very impressive art. The cost of 15 Lei or half that for seniors is a bargain. The docents direct you to the topmost floor to begin viewing. The art is arranged by nation of origin of the artist. You begin in the Italian artists section. Oddly the docent would only allow exit or entrance... More

This museum could easily fill a day (or two half days). Outstanding well organized European collection and phenomenal Romanian collection. The latter is less well organized and visitors who are not Romanian may tire of some of the early historical paintings, the modern art collection of art and sculpture is a magnificent collection. This museum alone is worth a trip... More

If you are passionate about painting or you are just an enthusiast or just want to know more about Romania and you have one day to spent closer to the paintings while in Bucharest, here is my suggestion: offer yourself a treat with the Romanian greatest painters - Nicolae Grigorescu, Nicolae Tonitza, Theodor Aman, Ion Andreescu, Theodor Pallady, Gheorghe Petrascu,...

We purchased a ticket for only the Romanian Art Collection which included medieval and late Romanian art. The religious art collection of textiles and artifacts which begins in the "medieval" section is really spectacular. The non-sacred collection of paintings beginning with the 17th century is interesting, but as the collection continues into the 20th century, the art becomes less interesting... More

The Museum has mainly 2 floors, one for religious art (from middle age) and one for "modern" Romanian painters. The religious one is really interesting even if a bit boring. Regarding the "modern romanian painters" your ask yourself why you do not know none of them!! is is just a serie of portraits or landscapes really uninteresting (I saw just... More

I am not referring to the main museum which is spectacular but the Art Collections Museum, a branch of the National Art Museum housed in a Palace further down the street. The collection is actually very nice and beautifully displayed. The very serious problem is the staff and surveillance. I was there Saturday morning May 18th and was one of... More

There are normally 3 buildings (religious/roman art and European art are open), the other building is closed. But even with "only" 2 buildings I did spend 3 hours in the museum and didn't see everything in detail. The collection is in general not always fantastic but there are quite some very nice pieces of art to be found :-)

The collection of Romanian and European art rivals any museum in the world. We spent over 3 hours in the Romanian building, took a lunch break then spent over 2 hours in the European gallery in the old Royal palace. Both are incredible collections, in amazing buildings. Buy the combination ticket, and wear good walking shoes. We were so impressed,... More
