At times I think I was the only one on the entire floor. The interior is quite sad in some sections and more decadent in others. Overall, the facilities need a serious modern upgrade like better lighting and less drab decor. But I guess this is the Eastern Europe atmosphere and could be funny to experience. Entry fee is not...

The interior of the part of the building that is the Gallery of European Art is beautiful, while the part of the building that houses the Romanian art is much more drab and industrial looking. Both parts, however, have some great paintings and sculptures. I was unfamiliar with Romanian artists, but really enjoyed the works of Nicolae Grigorescu and Samuel... More

I preferred the European paintings in the other building but there is some nice iconography here I admired. I'm much less a fan of the contemporary art but saw a few gems.

Was there yesterday. Spent only 20 minutes. There were a lot of iconography of the bible. I have seen many of those because of my study History of Art. The modern paintings are more interesting. I would recommend, but don't expect too much. It's not the Louvre.

Admission to the two sections requires separate tickets or a special combined ticket. The... More

This museum has an extensive collection of Romanian artists. The displays are excellent and easy to follow. I felt this was a great introduction to my visit of Bucharest. The cost is very affordable but I did not see anyone who could assist in interpretation. The displays are in Romanian, English and French.

Entry - I purchased a 50 RON ticket that lasted 7 days and got me unlimited entry into four art museums. It also meant that I could go back and revisit and also go out for lunch half way through my visit etc. Photography allowed. The NMA is a stunning museum - wonderful comprehensive collection from Medieval through to early... More
