  • We did not plan to visit but found while walking round the outside of the parliament building, which was closed. We got in an hour before closing on 31st December at 1pm. Nice collection on each floor...  more »

  • Great location. A changing art exchibition that can finish with a coffee above the Romanian Parliament.
  • The rating is for the museum itself and not for the current exhibitions. Firstly, getting to the museum on foot is a mildly torturous experience. One must labour around the entire parliament beside a roaring road since walking through the parliament gardens is absurdly not allowed. The museum is located in the backside of the parliament building, and architecturally speaking, it's perfect. Entering the museum you're faced with an humourless staff member that directs you to an airport security style machine in which you and your possessions are examined with the customary hostility of airport security. One then must buy a ticket from a machine and can at last enter. My gripe comes from this initial experience that has more in common with the unpleasantries of catching a budget airline than being in an art museum, namely both the lack of basic humanity and consideration for the visitor experience. The museum has much potential as an art institution, but more focus should be placed on creating a welcoming and user friendly experience.
  • Great location with a beautiful architecture and an awesome view. A lot of good expositions. Cheap entrance. Free if you are an architecture or art student in Romania.
  • It's as relative as Contemporary Art. I've been there a couple of times and I've enjoyed it. Besides, it's one of the easiest ways to visit the building itself (Palace of Parliament) without a booking. The view from the café on the roof is interesting.
  • Great museum. The fact that is placed in the Palace of Parliament building makes is more interesting, the architecture contributing to the overall experience.
