I highly recommend this museum to anyone interested in European and Romanian art and history of Sibiu. It has a large collection of paintings belonging to Dutch-Belgian painters from 1400-1700 and modern Romanian paintings from 1800 on. I think you should buy a ticket for all the museums which compose the great museum. They are in different locations, but not... More

Situated in the old city in the Big Square it must be visited. A lot of beautiful paintings. I visited only the first 2 floor, European culture, but it was enough. There are also to be visited Romanian curture floor and Hunting Saloon

We tought that a trip to Sibiu need to have a visit to the Brukentahal so we decided to see the museum. The location is great and there is something for everyone but it has a big downside the price, especialy if you want to take some pictures to remeber the trip. The artwork is incredible and the museum is... More

I have to echo the others here. The Romanian artist collection and prime collection in the 2nd floor are the gems. The decorated rooms re lovely but the laughing is horrible. Too much reflection on the canvases and just lots of dark artwork. I was wondering if it needed leaning. The Romanian artwork was colorful and the gem. Wish we... More

We were lucky to see the special exhibition of masterpieces that came back to Roumania after they had been stolen during the war. An absolute great show. The museum needs more money though as for the rest of the 16th and 17th century paintings all need cleaning.

Romanian Art Gallery, Brukenthal Gardens, The treasury, Crypt and many others to visit. Great price for all of them at discounted price if you take part at the Art Mania festival.

A stunning building with lots of artwork exhibited throughout. An amusing display was located in the basement, which dealt with witches, dracula and ghouls. The two resident cats were really sweet. The staff were very friendly and showed the group around a number of the rooms. A must visit.

Brukenthal Museum features top collections of art, mainly paintings, but also an extensive weapons collection. The archaeology collection displayed at semi-basement is also impressive, and features very old objects, some of them dating back 2000 years ago. There's no doubt that Brukenthal Museum is Sibiu's main attraction.

Touring Sibiu means basically seeing one very large piazza with a fine palace in the middle surrounded by great aristocratic townhouses (the Brukenthaler is one) and a much smaller lower square which is mostly useful for giving great views and perspective on the main attraction above. If you are traveling in Transylvania, Sibiu is not to be missed. The Brukenthal... More
