it seemed vey expensive and the exhibits were badly displaced and the whole place seemed slightly confusing. The staff seemed slighty bored and whilst not unhelpful, they did nothing to make me feel welcomed. All in all, i would not bother to go. The exhibits were not that exciting

As a matter of fact I have visited the Brukenthal Museum many times in the 60ties when the collection was still complete. I have been extremely disappointed when I visited the museum again 45 years later in June 2015, of course there are major paintings left but other collections like his coin collection, the weapons, the mommy and others have...

There are some cool old artifacts in this museum, including clothing and silverware dating back 100s of years. But, I found the artwork, which makes up most of the museum a little boring. We found a guide who was most helpful and spoke English. The exhibits also have English translations. TIP: If you are walking through the old city and... More

Lovely medieval building usually houses various collections from stages of Hermannstadt's history - from it's long gone Dacian presence to its 1000 year old Austro-Hungarian apogee. But often has other interesting displays such as a Dali exhibition.

The museum is full of precious paintings, the categories are numerous and it is a delight to visit each and every chamber of this lovely museum. As for its location, you'll be glad to know that it is right in the center of Sibiu, very close to any of the other tourist attractions of the Big Square. If you intend... More

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
