It feels sad and not taken care of with most of the rooms closed. Not really informative and tourist friendly

We visited the royal throne & reception rooms along with other spaces in a guided tour that takes place once per month in Romanian. However you can call and book private tours in English. It is definitely worth it! I've lived in Bucharest for years now and I think it's in the top 5 things to do in Bucharest. If... More

If you like art then worth a visit although it is not a patch on the Glasgow Art Gallery. A lot of the same artists in different rooms as most of the collections were from private contributors. it was a bit uncomfortable as you are constantly watched and followed about by attendants and were a bit nippy with our friend...

A beautiful palace that offers a European art gallery with Italian, German, Dutch, French & Spanish paintings alongside sculptures. There is also a Romanian art gallery, featuring many masterpieces of Romania's artists as well as galleries with the medieval art of Romania, from religious items to crypts. There is also a tour that starts at 4 on some days (ask... More

Probably the best place to experience art within Bucharest, with both Romanian and European (mostly western) artists to admire. The collection is expansive and is split across multiple buildings (within the same area - it's a 30sec walk!), with quite an emphasis on 15th/16th century religious-based artwork for maybe about half of the collection. Still certainly worth a visit while... More

The museum has a large collection of art. There are 2 wings in this museum for art, Romanian art and European art. There is a huge collection of paintings, especially by Romanian artists. For me the most impressive ones were the modern Romanian collection upstairs, (around 19th century). The Theodor Aman collection is really impressive. You need some time if... More
