It was later used as the Royal Palace, and is one of the country's foremost architectural achievements. Check out the statue of King Carol the first of Romania in front.

The National Museum Of Art Of Romania, Bucharest Reviews
This place gets 5 stars because of their medieval art collection- superb! Based on the second floor, this thoughtfully curated exhibit of Romanian artifacts was an incredible way to become familiar with styles and periods of art in the country. Helpful hint: Each room features a rack with a page of laminated notes about the items in that room, so be sure to find those in each gallery - they explain a lot and call out highlights from the room.
Can you give me the possibility to add some stars to my review? This museum is unbelievable, more that impressive, more than exceptional, it's a testimonial about the Romanian old and new beautiful arts - sculpture, painting, collage, tapestry, iconography, religious and historical artifacts and so on. I think that I've stayed there three, maybe four hours but, as I've told you, it deserved each second! I'm speechless and I make serious efforts to write something about my experience - a great opportunity to spend some time in a very pleasant way, believe me!
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.
Apart from the fact that it hosts the most impressive collections of national arts, the building also represents the former royal residence. The museum of the royal palace is available for visiting in certain days of the week, shown on the website. The architecture of the chambers are impressive and photographs don't make it justice. It's something that you have to see yourself.
Is a very important place to visit especially for a Romanian, we admired all the art listed there. It would be nice if there were the possibility to pay for the tickets with the credit card. I think this way is more civilized. Also the written explanations were small and difficult to read.
