Must see: Pictura romaneasca / Pictura internationala Just give yourself some good time, for the rooms are huge and there are a lot to see.
we went , a bit late ..it was closed , but the people on the door was rude ....they must have more educated persons in such crucial points , knowing foreign languages ..... Museum is on the big square exactly , visible from everywhere .
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
It IS a very good museum. On a visit this August, as advertised, a selection of the most important works had gone on loan to another European country. This DID, inevitably weaken the impact of the collection- especially as these paintings had been replaced with very poor quality photocopies, but were still roped off! Nevertheless, there was enough remaining to... More
We just popped in here to see the collection of Romanian art. I'm so glad we did - Robert Wellman's wonderful painting of a young woman being dressed for her wedding was worth the visit alone. The collection is only a few rooms, but carefully chosen. Great treat.
