This Place is must in this city, shows and events are thoughtful and interesting Founded in 2001, the National Museum of Contemporary Art of Romania shaped itself as a living institution dedicated to exhibiting, researching and promoting Romanian contemporary art. Relocated inside the Palace of Parliament within the historically symbolic House of the People since 2004, the museum aims to present relevant names in Romanian and international art through a holistic approach to visual culture. Too bad its crammed in a government building with controlled access

A place worth checking out when you visit the city more often or if you love contemporary art. Be sure to take a look at their website first to see what's on, sometimes it's a bit empty. The entrance is not the entrance of the parliament, although its the same building. You need a taxi drive around it to get there.

Very nice exhibitions. Huge exhibition halls. As it's in the same building as the parliament expect a security check, so if you go to an opening take this into consideration.

MNAC is a must see. It offers 5 floors filled with intriguing art, it's very cheap, and located in the largest communist building on Earth. Sold? 3 stars though.. first of all, there was loud construction work going on on the 5th floor. Stuff like that should be done outside of museum's working hours because it really does disturb the visitors. Second of all, the employees. They gave a feeling that the art displayed there is worthless, kind of 'why are you here and why are you looking at this'. Looked like they are enjoying following you and staring at you. Not sure what's going on with the employee training, but pretty impolite and unprofessional staff.

Part of the parliament building where MNAC is, is very beautifully restored. I visited on March 21st 2018 and all of the exhibitions were great (5 floors of them altogether). Great artists, great art. The price for me as a student was 4 lei (less than 1 eur). Though what ruined the whole experience for me were the people that worked there. The security guy hurried us to go to the next level asap, seemed like him and a couple of other employees, did not understand why would we linger by an art work. We were mostly the only people on the floor so were monitored closely. The museum is gorgeous and you certainly do not need a taxi to get around the building [just go left if coming from the old town]. But the employees really ruined the whole experience as I felt very uncomfortable and am used to visiting art museums quite a lot.
