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. If you have more time you... More

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.

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... I took two hours to see everything and it worth it! If you like art, and feel the country through it's artists this museum is a great... More

It has two different exhibitions , the European for me was better because the other is focused to religious art .

This is a stunning building easily accessible on the main street of Bucharest ! It houses what our Greeter described as the best museum in Bucharest ! Unfortunately it was nearly closing time when we got there but the few glances we were able to do of the inside really impressed us !

You'll find almost everything you want to see in Romanian's art history from the greatest painters that lived centuries ago to modern art. The museum also holds the European Art Gallery.

I have visited the National Museum of Art of Romania several times, and each time I've had the chance to both enjoy the unique permanent collections as well as the temporary exhibitions. Recently, I visited "Oglinzile Orientului" (Mirrors of the Orient), a superlative exhibition about Orientalism in Romania and Europe. I have also written an article about it on my... More

Like other said, there are two sections and the price for both is 15 and one is 10... I spend in Romanian's art almost 3 hours; have good collection and give you perspective about what Romanian's art are.
