I wish we started with the Romanian wing; they have a beautiful collection. The international collection is also good, but the Romanian I found really amazing, wish I had more time.

The Brukenthal National Museum was recommended by my girlfriend's best friend, Andreea, and we're glad we visited! Its located in a beautiful old building in the heart of Sibiu, and showcases an outstanding collection of Romanian and European art. At one point my girlfriend was moved to tears as she saw first-hand some pieces of art that she had only... More

Very interesting museum. Not all items displayed to their best advantage but they are currently fundraising to make improvements and it is obvious that this work is in progress.

I enjojed my tour of Brukenthal museum. I met Antonela the cat and his brother. I love the fact that the cats are at home in the museum area. Also, I was fascinated with the current temporary contemporary art exhibition of Csaba Zemlényi's works.

For those of you who appreciate are and have the patience to actually sit for a while and admire a painting this is the place to be. Just make sure you arrive early since the museum is pretty big and has many art pieces to offer on display. However if you are expecting something on the scale of The Louvre... More

On a big scheme of the world great museums, this one is a bit modest, but it has charm, and the rental guide makes you aware of the history of the town, the life and the role of this baron, well liked by Maria Teresa. The rooms are all furnished in the medieval German life style of some nobility, the... More

We saw a temporary exposition of golden jewelries about 2000 years old and it was absolutely amazing! Also, the garden inside the palace is nice. It is worth a visit. Also, those passionate of art, should definitely pay a visit!

I was an amazing experience visiting this museum. The collections are very impressive. There is more than one museum in the building, so there are several prices, depending on what you want to see. I suggest the complete ticket so that you can visit everything.
