It is a nice place, the building is next to the royal palace. I found it very "old" as most of the Romanian museums. It should be more up to date.

The museum is located in the old Royal Palace which in it's day would have been a grand building. The portrayal of the birth and death of Christ has a different take on it. Make sure both wings of the museum are visited as the styles are completely different.

Well, there is a good collection of romanian art (especially ancient icons). But on the 2nd and 3rd floor they didn't put air conditions. And it's not approval to drink. So museum's managers shouted on me at +35C. Come on guys! Put air conditions there. don't be strange!

We visited the Romanian art museum rather than the European art. The museum spans several floors, each floor consists of specific period of art. It gets hot without air con in the summer.

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.
