Nice museum ... holding art from all over Europe and Romania. It is still undergoing renovations and some wings are about to open soon. Nice architecture, a staple for the Sibiu city and important piece of history for Romania!

The ticket to the Brukenthal covers a variety of museums in he beautiful town of Sibiu. The main museum covers a lot of ground but is at its best in the 'Masterpieces' section which has some great paintings beautifully displayed. Worth visiting for Brueghel's 'Massacre of the Innocents' alone. The Romanian Art Gallery is of interest and gives you an... More

A great collection of artwork including Romania's most renowned painters. We were also treated to a Dali exhibit the day we were there. Check it out!

Very impressive and diverse collection of Romanian and international art and artefacts in a great central location, a must see! The entrance fee isn't cheap, especially by Romanian standards, considering that some of the exhibition rooms are not great. For example, the temporary exhibition of Dali's illustrations for Dante's Divina Commedia was fantastic in content but was not up to... More

Museum has so much paintings from old times. I got my back hurt while walking down big and decorated corridors. It was a pleasure for the eyes. If you like art in the form of paintings go for it. It costs 32 lei in total both for Romanian and European arts.

The museum is situated in the center of the town (Piata Mare - The Big Square). The art gallery has paintings both from Romanian artists (Tonitza, Aman, Grigorescu, Luchian) and from international artists (notably: "The Man with the Blue Turban" by Jan van Eyck). The light isn’t great, but if you catch the right angle, the art is beautiful. Also,... More

It's nice to see it but I won't go there for a second visit. I paid 18 Euro to visit all the galleries and it was a bit expensive. I definitely recommend the galleries from basement (the goth one).

This is one of Romania's most well known museums. It used to be the home of baron Samuel von Brukenthal, the governor of Transylvania back in the 18th century and the building itself is quite a sight in itself. There is a big collection of European art from the early 15th century up to the 18th century, not really my... More

The museum/gallery is in an old palace built round courtyards. The Rumanian paintings were more interesting than the Italian. There is a fine Breughel.
