It's located in the center of Cluj and it's a must see if you're a lover of art. There are some great permanent exhibitions you can admire and also many temporary exhibitions.

The heritage owned by the Cluj-Napoca Art Museum is impressive and valuable, including Romanian and universal art dating from the fifteenth century to the present. Thus, we find pieces of art from different branches: painting, sculptures , graphic arts , decorative arts.

The building is old and the condition is poor. The exhibitions of paintings are in chronological order from 18th to 20th century. There are some nice pieces of art, but the collection is small.
