Incredible collection of Transylvanian artists of German origin plus a remarkable selection of consecrated Romanian paintors. Best gift shop ever seen in a museum and visited a few around Europe. In addition you can visit the international gallery section plus some beautifully preserved rooms of the Brukenthal palace.

Brukental Museum host today many valuable pictures of the masters as Rubens, Van Dyck, Tiziano, Cranach and other Flamish, Dutch, German, French or Spanish painters. Very well represented within such well-known museum is the Austrian painting school from XVI - XIX centuries and, also, the painting of Transilvania region, from XVIII - XIX centuries. The actual art patrimony of the... More

Brukenthal Museum is definitely the top attraction in Sibiu! The featured paintings cover many centuries, belonging to Italian, German, Austrian, Flemish, Dutch and Romanian artists. There is also a very large weapons collection, in the same museum building, but at a different entrance. This collection covers mostly XV-XVIII century weapons and it's very interesting. However, the main attraction of the... More

A good break from all Sibiu has for tourists, and one of the better museums in Romania. The guide we had was very helpful with explanations of how the Museum came to be, and good stories on some paintings that otherwise we would have considered obscure. A good collection of Flemish art, however the highlight is on the Romanian painting... More

If you like art, you must see the romanian exhibition. It will let you voiceless! These artists would deserve to be more known over the world. It is a must see, in the heart of the historic city of Sibiu.

I was expecting more for the price you have to pay to get in here. The ordinary art work (hung in the rooms) is in places poorly lit and hard to see. The premium collection has a few nice pieces but the two outstanding pieces for me were the Turk Pasha in one of the back rooms and a cubist... More

My wife and I enjoyed our visit to the Brukenthal art museum, with its multiple rooms of paintings on two floors by German, Austrian, Flemish and Dutch artists. The Brukenthal has a moderate amount of artwork on display, not so much that you feel overwhelmed or are exhausted after walking miles of corridors.

We found the Museum of Pharmacy most interesting. We were especially intrigued to learn the Homeopathy originated in 1796 by a German named Samuel Hahnemann. It was interesting to note that some of the equipment to make some medicinal blends, e.g. mortar and pestle, have remained essentially unchanged in 200 years. Time constraints prevented us from visiting other parts of... More
