The museum is divided into two main sections: one encompassing an impressive collection of icons and middle ages' church artifacts, and the other representing a wide spectrum of modern art from the past two centuries.
It is well organized, centrally located with easy access from major hotels. It is reasonably priced and provides a sufficient glimpse without being overwhelming.
Movement between exhibition halls is well planned and you never get a feeling of missing something. In addition each room has explanation pamphlets in a number of languages, which can be borrowed through the visit in each.
Main shortcomings include an almost non existent gift/souvenir shop and an obvious absence of post WW II art.
Overall, a good way of spending an hour or two in Bucharest.

National Museum of Art of Romania is situated in the Royal Palace, in Bucharest.

This museum displays some collections of art like: the European Art Gallery, the National Art Gallery, the Collections of drawings and prints, Decorative Art, and Oriental Art.

I'd visited the both galleries - European and National Art.

At the European gallery I've seen the paintings of some of the best classic and modern painters : Rubens, Rembrandt, Velasquez, El Greco, Van Eyck, Tintoretto, and Pissaro, Monet, Sisley.

Unfortunately here it's forbidden to take photos.

I recommend this museum to everyone who love the art.

I had limited time while in Bucharest, so I aimed to look at the Gallery of Romanian Art only, since I didn't have time to view the rest of the collection. The building itself is massive and quite lovely - it can be quite confusing when you walk in to figure out where exactly you go and how to purchase tickets (there are different prices for each different part of the museum). The desk to purchase these near the main entrance is not easily found, so when you walk in look to your right before you go up the stairs.

The Romanian collection was very impressive and HUGE - it starts around the 12th century (phenomenal collection of Orthodox Iconography) and goes to present day. It took me about 2 hours to go through it all (and that was a brisk pace). In particular, I liked the sculpture by Dimitrie Paciurea, especially 'Chimeras' and "God of War".

Certainly worth a visit - the building itself is quite lovely (though cavernous when you are walking through it). Allow at least 2 hours if not more (if you plan to do the entire museum)

The former Romanian Royal Palace houses this famous museum. The museum building is huge, but the collections are rather modest, but they have many masterpieces of European painters as El Greco, Jan Bruegel and Tintoretto. The best known of the Romanian artist is Nicolae Grigorescu. Well worth a visit.
