I only visited the Romanian art side and found it very interesting - particularly the old religious art. I appreciated that the explanations were available in English. Only thing is that the Museum is not very modern - no good book shop, hard to find the toilets, no cafe that I could see. But the art itself is great!

The National museum of art is a very impressive building with excellent exhibition. You should give yourself a couple of hours in order to view the main exhibitions.

Although far from being as famous as the Louvre in Paris or the British Museum in London, the MNAR is the Gallery of European Art has several pieces by well known universal masters (El Greco, Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Monet, Sisley, Pissaro etc.), and the Romanian galleries are full of precious Old and Modern art.

Less than 2 Euros, many art piece, large portion of famous artists, nice presentations- and no visitors! We felt like in a private tour, the guards explaining and directing us. A good 2 hours visit.

We bought this 7-day special ticket that covers 4 places for 50 RON. The main exhibition was very impressive. Also they had one temporary exhibition which was very interesting. The person in charge of the ticket booth was really nice and helpful. He explained all the different options and was very friendly. As a side note, I would have checked... More

The art museum is housed within a former royal palace, which has the most beautiful interiors, to us an attraction in itself. Our main incentive to visit was it was free, that being said we are so glad we went, as we are now lovers of Romanian art, definitely a must see.

For me was a bit weird pay to see each exhibition, but both, the permanent and the "art for the people " were amazing... The museum is huge, in a very beautiful building...
