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.

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
