Well, the museum is indeed located in a historic building dating back to the 16th century and keeps several items of furniture and decorations in place, however it combines the medieval style with the modern one. There are armors, arms, prehistoric items etc. I found the coin exposition to be the most interesting one.

Very interesting museum having lots of chambers with armors, arms, old coins and jewelry. You can pay a ticket here or you can have a full ticket that offers entrance to all the museums in the Brukenthal Museum Complex. Unfortunately, same old Romanian habit: no photos allowed, except the inner garden.

Thomas Altemberger acquired some buildings that he had transformed into his town house. The oldest part of these buildings was a Gothic dwelling tower that was constructed in the 13th century. The house took its present form between 1475 and 1490. The house was acquired by the town of Sibiu in 1545 and turned into its town hall. It served... More

Spent over 2 hours going round - learnt more on ancient history than I had eve down at school. Superb explanations from our guide who went to great lengths in her stories. The collection of gold coins was amazing as were the neolithic sections.

The History Museum of Sibiu is situated in an old building - Altemberger Haus. The museum is rich and concentrated especially on the prehistory and antiquity. For persons interested by the ancient history a visit here is useful. The staff is kind; the museum has also a thesaurus. The presentation is very beautiful, even spectacular sometimes. The fee is only... More

It's a trip back in time, around 10000 years, goes from the Stone Age through the metal Ages, Thracian( Dacian) then roman occupation and through the Middle Ages. Highly informative for those who want to understand the REAL history of Romania and Transylvania, not Stocker's fictional Book. Weapons and armory exhibition both western and oriental. How the organization of the... More
