Very good collection of Romanian art, including jewelry and artifacts. It's a shame that is not translated in other languages so we couldn't fully understand how important the history of Romania is.

Although I was surprised by the very good quality of the paintings, the museum is not well aired and has a musty smell. After an hour all you want is to breath clean air

Situated in the former Romania palace still outside you can see the flowers and candles that they place after the collapse of dictatorship. Excellent paintings just too hot inside.

This is a large museum with two sections. The first is dedicated to Romanian art from the XV-XVI century (mostly religious) to the XXth (impressionnism, cubism...). Some of those artists are worth knowing. The second part is deducated to Europeart; the works are divided by countries (Italy, Germany, Spain, Holland/Flanders, France). They are all Rennaissance paintings excrtp for the French... More

Only saw the outside as there had been a recent bereavement in the "Royal" family. Lots of flowers and candles everywhere. Aside from that, the facade looked amazing.

It has some paintings of very well known painters and a lot of romanian ones some known some less known but great paintings. The fact that is almost empty is a plus leaving you to see everything at your own pace. The price is more than decent and it is worth it.

This gallery has many different styles of art as well as a specifically Romanian exhibit. Give yourself plenty of time and wear comfortable shoes. The exhibit of portraits was my favorite! My husband, who is not really an art lover also enjoyed our visit here.

Visited last year - fabulous. Really looking forward to visiting again this week but Nope! closed on Monday no signs just a few workers outside having a fag saying it was shut but would be open Tuesday. Directed us to a satellite gallery further up the Calea Victorei which was absolutely excellent. Went back on Tuesday - Nope! more people... More

Romanian art is something that most people know little to nothing about so I highly suggest visiting this museum while in Bucharest to get a taste of the talent that this country has offered. There are three floors with art from many different time periods, including more modern times. The price is extremely reasonable and the museum itself is easy... More

A much better gallery than the Contemporary. Like many Eastern-European art galleries, it was almost empty when I went. I highly recommend it.
