The painting exhibition features both european and strictly romanian section. The collection was good, you can even find some bigger names in the european section. I really enjoyed the romanian part though, the paintings are in majority good and there are some really beautiful pieces (especially the one depicting traditional outfits and peasant lifestyle). You can also see impressive interriors... More

Historically important building, creaky wood floors, easily viewed in 11/2 hours. Well worth the modest entry fee. Some of the artifacts are in poor repair.

Very friendly staff throughout, willing to help by offering tips and directions. However, a confusing ticketing structure which requires the purchase of two separate tickets if one wishes to visit the whole museum, and introduces an annoying system of ticket checks; just when you thought you can put those ticket stubs away, in comes an attendant, asking to see them...

It is a nice museum, worth visiting, with plenty of old paintings. It is nicely located in the center of the old town of Sibiu.

The staff at the ticket booth is rude and unfriendly also they are unwilling to explain to you the kind of tickets you can buy.
