This is a great museum in a spectacular old building. Although we're very interested in art we had little knowledge of Romanian art and artists and so it was fascinating and educational. The room attendants were also very happy to provide further information and background which was really helpful. Absolutely worth a visit and allow a couple of hours.

The history of the art collection begins with the Banat Museum’s establishment in 1872. To the humble beginnings of the actual section of art, dating back to 1879 when the first painting was registered, is added an important donation from Ormòs Zsigmond’s collection, who was one of the museum’s founders, in the period between 1888 and 1895. His donation, which... More

The museum looks very good, it's very well preserved and it has a great collection of contemporary art belonging to Romanian painters. It was a very beautiful experience and I can't wait to be back soon in Timisoara to visit the museum again.

Beautiful renovated building. Not a large collection on display, but still worthwhile. I learned a fair bit about Romanian artists. Also a collection of continental European art. It was a quiet day..and they didn't bother opening the ticket wicket to charge me admission!

Nice little museum with Romanian artists. It wasn't that big. We spent about an hour going through the gallery. They did not offer any tours, but we were able to follow along as there was info in English.
