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 is one of the most interesting and well organized museum in Sibiu. There are plenty of old artifacts, from pre-historic times to 19th century. Wonderful!

I loved this Museum! Lots of interesting displays with plenty to see. The first section of the Museum was like walking back in time'. I particularly enjoyed the displays about the different Guilds during the medieval period. Highly recommended if you are interested in history.

Is situated near the Great Square, all the exibition rooms were remade in 2006 (if I am not mistaking) and you can see arheological artefacts from discoveries in the region all the way to the modern artefacts (all kind of crafts work wich are really impressive)!

It is most interesting that nobody anywhere in the official touristic books mention that the real name of "Sibiu" is "HERMANNSTADT" (who was "Hermann", where is his picture, engraving, stamp etc.??) and the Latin name was "CIBINVM"...The Germans, the Hungarians and the Czeks who built the magnificent Transsylvanian cities and fought against the Turkish-Tartar invasion for 500 years (!) together...
