  • Top tourist attraction in Bucharest. One of the best museums in town. Guides are very knowledgeable and answer all of your questions. Admission tickets are not expensive and there is a student discount available. There is a special tour of the former living quarters of the King plus the Throne Room.

  • There are great things to see in the museum. It's very cheap considering how big it is. They allow you to take photos for free, which is a think that is kind of hard to find in Romanian Museums. Staff is very nice and they guide you very well, they are also very talkative! :)

  • The National Art Museum of Bucharest includes exhibitions and collections of the best works of art, created by the best artists from different periods in history. The museum is large, with two spaces, and you can visit only one or both. The museum is stunning in its beauty as a palace in the distant past of Romania, which was used by members of the royal family when they were in the city. The richness and splendor can be gleaned from the impressive facade of the building that now houses the nice museum. The admission fee is reasonable. Opening hours: Wednesdays to Sunday from 10: 00-18: 00 (last entry before closing). How long should I visit? At least an hour and a half.

  • Gorgeous collections!!! A real treasure :). This year I attended an amazing festival, hosted by them , Unfinished festival. The organizer, Cristian Movila, had a great idea to hold this festival in the museum. It was really beautiful.

  • Nice museum. Shows basically a lot of the Hungarian history. A lot of Christian figures, pictures atc. Great pictures painted from various times over Hungary history. Mainly in Hungarian language.
