|About these ratings|
Housed in the former Royal Palace along Calea Victoriei, the National Art Museum caters to non-discerning art lovers. With more than 100,000 works, the collection features some public favorites like Monet, Rembrandt, and Renoir alongside Romanian artists such as Grigorescu and Andreescu. One TripAdvisor user comments: "The regular exhibits of European art are fairly limited and not particularly impressive." Although you may not be blown away by the works, spend an afternoon strolling through the halls of the palace and admire the setting and a few eye-catching pieces. This tourist-friendly museum offers English tours and literature. To browse the collection, visit its website and decide which galleries and exhibitions you would like to visit first.
