Art Museum
At The National Museum of Art of Romania, discover Romanian medieval and modern art, as well as works by European masters like Rembrandt, Rubens, Brueghel, and El Greco. A former royal residence, originally built by a wealthy trader in 1812, houses the collection of national and European art dating from the 15th to the 20th centuries. The museum exhibits over 100,000 works including medieval icons, illustrated manuscripts, carved altars, and fragments of wall painting, as well as works by famous 20th-century artists. See an early Brancusi sculpture and lesser-known art pieces by Monet, Renoir, and Cezanne. The museum has opened up its throne room and occasionally organizes guided tours through the former imperial living quarters.

  • The museum gives a comprehensive overview on a floor of religious art during the 16th and 17th centuries. Further floors an overview of Romanian art in the periods thereafter until about the beginning of the 20th century. Irritating was that an all-inn ticket apparently no gave access to the temporary restoration exhibition.

  • One of the most important museums in Bucharest, I recommend It for art and paintings lovers. It's very big and rich of paintings and sculptures.
  • The entry fees to visit European art museum and Romanian art museum is 15 Leu per person. If you want to visit only one, it is 8 Leu. This is more like an art gallery than a museum. Each building has 3 floors. Each floor is very large. Several paintings are on display. Romanian wing has the jewelry, attires, crowns used by kings/queens of Romania on display. It also has tomb stones of saints. There is no rush and there is not much crowd. This place can be covered in 2-4 hours. If you want to take pictures inside building , you need to pay 100 Leu.
  • It's a palace ! host of numerous "permanent exhibitions" of Romanian and guest artists. Easy accessible as far as location, with nearby public parking place, or on foot as it's a short walking distance from the city center ( Universitatii Square or Roman Square ) . Also symbolic entrance fee.
  • The museum itself is huge and separated into the Romanian gallery and the European gallery. There are lots of art pieces so you'd better have some time on your hands if you plan on seeing everything.
  • Really loved this place, the paintings are very well preserved. But the museum is really huge, I wished there was some categorization done that could've helped. Also, some background about the paintings, artists and the art style would have been nice.
