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.

  • To 6.5 LEI, the Romanian national museum offers the opportunity to see paintings by school Spanish, Italian, Dutch (not great), and French. The French section offers the possibility to see little-known works by famous artists such as Rembrandt, Monet, Courbet or Rodin. The Romanian section is also super interesting, these artists are not recognised internationally and it is a pity. You can also discover many from works of the Orthodox Church that allow to better approach visits next monasteries in the city. The building is beautiful, and the staircase is a true work of art.

  • It's worth taking a look. It has not only Romenian art but other styles of European art as well. Tickets are cheap and staff is helpful.
  • Splendid architecture and a good taste for details in plus of art masterpieces exposed. Former royal palace
  • Very lively and historical place. Good pizza restaurant nearby
  • European Art Gallery... 15 lei/person (El Greco, Monet, Rebraunt and many anonymous artists) Art schools of Italy - Spain - Germany - France.
  • A museum where you can see superb exhibits. The most impressive exhibits are by far the ones belonging to the former royal families of Romania. King Carol's steel crown and her Majesty's Queen Maria jewelry collections must be seen. I also impressed the collections from the Romanian treasury; Dacian bracelets, Chicken Blanket and Dacic Coin Treasure.
