Very organised museum, including the whole story of Sibiu. The exhibitions are very well presented and very valuable to see. In my opinion, it overtakes the Brukenthal Museum and is the best museum in the Old Town.

You can have an overview about the life of the city in the earlier days. It is a comlex from houses of different times from the 14.th century.

The 6 euro entry fee is a little expensive for what the museum has to offer. There are a few good stuff to see but they are poorly exposed and with little info about them. But overall it is a place worth visiting once...

Language issues are never a real issue, so this has nothing to do with that. The cost of entry for this museum is on the high side for any museum in Europe. About €6. The staff was relatively unfriendly and unhelpful. Apparently if you want to take pictures (this is not at all obvious) you must pay €27 per hour.... More

Your challenge, if you wish to accept it, is to go through the dimly lit rooms without touching the gray lines with any part of your body since they're all got sensors and beep each time when you get even remotely close to them! Exhibition stars of with some of the prehistoric artefacts (that's the service from the ticket woman!).... More

Great building ' Casa Altemberger' which houses the museum. It is suggested that you start your tour of the different museums in Sibiu from here. The lady at the counter suggested that we can take a pass that includes entry to all the museums, which costs a fraction of what anyone ends up paying, if you buy ticket for each... More

The first room (Bronze Age settlements) is excellent but it goes down hill from there. The Roman history is interesting but quite dry. The route around the museum is convoluted but if you want to kill an hour whilst it rains....

Like most "history"museums in Romania, this one is just a collection of artifacts devoid of most context. The palace where the museum is located is splendid but the collections are pretty mundane.
