The museum offers a lot ot pictures and old furniture from a time long ago. The staff was polite. The ticket prices are slightly above average in our opinion but still OK. Also the garden and the basement is worth a visit. We recommend it with 4 Stars.

This museum offers a variety of paintings for art lovers. There is also a collection of furniture and decorative from that time. Romanian paintings were surprisingly more interesting than the others sections. The yard is very romantic for couples. Staff was not rude at all, they just make sure no one touches the exhibits and doesn't take photographs without authorization.

This museum is wonderful. The art that is present here is exquisite and the tour actually lasts 2 hours when you take your time to admire everything. This is actually quite a lot for a Romanian museum. The building itself is an attraction and you can choose out of many different tours. The Museum is your starting point for a... More

The rooms of the Museum dedicated to Romanian art are a must see. You won't be disappointed. Some of art is rivals the works seen in the Louvre.

The museum located in Bruckenthal's palace, in the heart of Sibiu's old city, houses a very nice collection of early (15th - 18th centuries mostly) paintings, sculpture, furniture, etc. The Romanian collection was wonderful!! It is made up mainly of more recent works very much in the styles of the impressionists, post-impressionists, cubists, and so forth. I wasn't familiar with... More

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.
