Representative selections of European and Romanian artwork. You can see there paintings by Romanian figures such as N. Grigorescu, T. Aman, T. Pallady, C. Baba. Worth seeing, inexpensive tickets and easy to detour from the Grand Square.

The museum holds one of the biggest art collection in Romania, paintings of some of the best Romanian artists, but paintings of some foreign artists too.

If you are in a hurry focus only on the second floor, where you can see the masterpieces of the European art and a diverse and valorous collection of Romanian art. The halls are superb
