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.

Representative selections of European and Romanian artwork. You can see there paintings by Romanian figures such as N. Grigorescu, T. Aman, T. Pallady, C. Baba. Worth seeing, inexpensive tickets and easy to detour from the Grand Square.

The museum is situated in the main square of sibiu. It was built in viennese style and is one of the main attractions in Sibiu. Keep in mind that the museum is closed Monday and Tuesday.

I was surprised by the complexity of this museum. Great pieces of European and Romanian art. Also, we were lucky enough to see the antique gold and silver of Romania that was exposed in Brukenthal Museum at that time.

The museum holds a big collection of paintings of Romanian artists and artists of European countries. You buy different tickets to visit the different parts of the museum which is good because if you have limited time you can visit one part and pay only for that. And the total cost is not expensive. Two paintings by Decler, Harbour city... More

The museum holds one of the biggest art collection in Romania, paintings of some of the best Romanian artists, but paintings of some foreign artists too. Very well situated, in the Big Square, the museum suffers in 2 critical areas: some of the rooms have a very bad light so you barely see anything in the paintings and photo shooting... More
