Being one of the attraction of the grand square of Sibiu, it worth’s visiting it, even only for the courtyard, how we did it. I’m sure the gallery and the interior of the museum are great but, we’ve decided just to rest a little bit on the interior alley; the price for the entrance it’s symbolic 1 or 2 lei... More

It a must see in Sibiu! The museum has great artwork, especially paintings, and they often host special exhibits. I could have spent hours in front of the masterpieces separately displayed. Spend at least a couple of hours to get the most of it and take a stroll through the interior courtyard as well. Also, the Brukenthal palace is marvelous... More

This museum is very interesting. The art is great as are the pieces of furniture. The basement display was a plus.

The Brukenthal Palace has a great history and even a greater art gallery. You need to allocate at least 2 hours to admire the beautiful paintings and the astonishing works of art. The entrance to the museum is made from the Big Square. More precisely on the western side of the square. The Palace doesn't look like much from the... More

The Brukenthal National Museum sits right on the large square and is well worth a visit. The museum contains both history/evolution of the Romani people sections and also art/antique pieces. Make sure to check hours prior to purchasing tickets and allow a couple of hours. I would avoid it in extreme weather as I know that it isn't air conditioned... More

A good selection of paintings from the 15th to the early 20th centuries. Especially enjoyed the paintings done by Romanians which you do not see very often as well as paintings done by less well known Dutch and Flemish artists. A nearby apothacary museum was included in our ticket. This small museum was unique and fascinating. Then there were some... More
