Let's be honest this was small and boring, and the man in the ticket office was comically grumpy-that was the one highlight!

Stunning centrepiece of Hapsburg Hermannstadt. The original wallpaper is as stunning as the art collection.

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.

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.
