I've got ticket to European art collection and the Romanian art collection. European part consists of the paintings of the German, Flamand, Austrian, Hungarian painters from around XVI to XVIII century. Paintings are badly lit which makes it impossible to experience the art fully. Romanian part is consisting of paintings of late XIX century and early XX century and is... More

From the reviews, I really did expect a lot more. The Romanian exhibit was very plain, the artworks were mostly portraits that just seemed "off"; such as a face too stretched out, one just out of perspective. One particular staff kept following me in particular as if I was going to steal a piece of artwork. The other staff members... More

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
