Unless you are deeply religious please start at the top and work down. This is where the traditional and modern art collections are. We stared at the bottom which was a big mistake as we soon got fed up with looking at religious icaons

Located in the Revolution Square (Piata Revolutiei) the museum has an impressive collection of national art, and the entire tour should take a couple of hours. It gives you a very good insight in the Romanian art history and has paintings made by the most important Romanian artists.

Apart from the beautiful building and the odd excellent painting (El Greco, Monet) I found the European art gallery disappointing. Something to visit on a rainy afternoon.

Excellent range of Romanian art and, if you buy joint ticket, wider European art too. Could spend a very long time here, but worth a stroll through all the galleries so you can stop when you find the styles and periods you like. Good value too.

I absolutely love this museum. You may choose to go for the building itself or for the treasures inside, but go, by all means! Formerly the royal palace, it still has the architectural details to remind you of that in the large halls and corridors. The European Art Gallery may not seem much for someone who has seen Uffizi or... More

Plan on at least a couple of hours if not three or more. I like to look at the outside, but the inside is the treasure. This former royal palace has Romanian art for many periods and I always find enjoyable.

Given the exterior and the comments on the beauty of the museum, I was prepared to be wandering an old palace with its art collection inside. Wrong assumption. Walking into the museum is like walking in a really terrible 1980s hotel lobby, and the rest of the museum, from an interior architecturem is really ugly. I was very disappointed, as... More

I focused on the Romanian art and not the European art so only saw 2 out of 3 galleries. The gallery of Romanian medieval art is impressive.Nearby is a room for items from the demolished Vacaresti Monastery built in 1716 and sadly demolished in 1987. In the gallery of Romanian Modern art the focus is on art from the nineteenth... More
