The National Museum of Art of Romania, Bucharest

4.3
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.

  • Interesting museum for art lovers, both European and international. The tickets for the two zones cost 3.15 euros (15ron) each but if you get the full package you will pay about 5euro (25 Ron).

  • I was very positively surprised by the National Romanian Gallery (not the European exhibition, which can be seen in the other wing of the castle). My recommendation is to go directly upstairs if you want to see paintings by Romanian artists and not sacred art.

  • So worth the visit. I saw both the European and Romanian galleries! Beautiful collections of sculptures, paintings, and religious icons. I spent three hours but I could have easily spent two more hours. Romania is amazing and has a lot to offer.
  • Wonderful museum. You'll see so much Romanian art that you'll walk out an expert. The European gallery was more limited and consisted mostly of Renaissance and Dutch work. Fantastic way to spend a morning in Bucharest.
