  • Staff lacks any kind of common sense. I was utterly displeased, to say in the least. I went to this particular museum as an art lover, looking for an enjoyable, peaceful experience, but I couldn't spend there more than one hour because of the very unprofessional attitude of the staff - I couldn't take one step without someone following me. I was feeling watched the whole time and it's truly unpleasant. I know their job is to "protect" the museum, but please teach them the manners to do so. I strongly recommend to train your staff better because art is not made to be admired while someone is breathing down your neck and following you around (if I want to ask something, I will, no need for someone to quietly follow my every step). Although the place is amazing and worth visiting, my experience here felt like jail. Oh and very, very bad lighting; you should be more careful with that because some paintings are robbed of their real artistic value.

  • Nice atmosphere and great art. Nonetheless, there are some major aspects that could be improved, such as the lightning that reflects too much on the paintings or the attitude of the museum workers.

  • Nice enough Museum. Entry tickets can only be purchased by cash. The apartments are only open on certain days.

  • Very interesting and educational exposition. I really enjoyed my visit here and I learned a lot about the traditional Christian iconography of this lands and about the most important names in Romania's modern art. I also enjoyed a lot the wing with the collection of European classical art. It includes paintings by Luca Signorelli, El Greco, Rembrandt, Rubens, some of the French impressionists and more. I was really glad to see there the four seasons by Pieter Brueghel the Younger. The interior of this wing is very lavish and grandiose, worth looking at. Overall my visit there was very pleasant. If you go to Bucharest I highly recommend this museum.

  • The former royal palace. Interesting neo-classical building wrongly designed from the beginning. The central colonnade shouldn’t be even, imagine that the royal speaker couldn’t have been centred at the balcony. Nowadays it is the national museum of art with an impressive collection to display, however during my visit back in 2006 the staff was arrogant and kept following us, my partner just took a look at her phone to check the time, the staff started screaming that phone not allowed!!!. I hope the old staff was replaced.
