The National Art Museum is housed In an elegant Palace built for and occupied by the Romanian Royal family, before the communists forced them to abdicate and leave the country. If you have seen the major world museums and keep thinking of those and making comparisons, this one will not impress you much. Yet, I found the building itself very... More

I would rate this museum as one of the finest in Europe and in the world. If you are a connoisseur of talent and beautiful art, this is a great experience. The only criticism I have is the museum (government?) charges you a FEE if you wish to take photos while viewing the collections which is tacky and should be... More

This museum obviously isn't a 5-star attraction compared with the Met, the Louvre, or the National Gallery (London), but it deserves a 5 as it is by far the best art I saw in Bucharest. There are two halves to the museum, and as I was in a hurry I decided just to see the European section. Some of the... More

In a two week period I visited several museums including The Louvre in Paris, The Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam and several others. My experience at the National Museum of Art is the only negative one I have had anywhere that I can remember- ever. A tour guide I had for the day walked me in and communicated with the... More

One of us had already gone to the European Art which they dubbed mediocre, so we focused on the Romanian artifacts and art which is really worth a visit.
