Very Romanian in the way that the security man tells you which bit of the building to go into next (didn't dare not follow his guidance). Whizzed through the Dacian display as it is so not on my interest list, but everything else was good. We were guided to 5 separate sections, each having its own 'theme' some giving more... More

A quite expensive by Romanian standards 25 lei entry fee. The start of the museum is a les than impressive anthropological history of man and you wonder why you went here. However move on to the collection of arms ( perhaps including the impressive storeroom full of them in racks) and the treasury of old coins, and glassware section, and... More

Being visited Sibiu as a good preserved medieval city I hoped to find artifacts and collection about its history. But the museum mainly presents information concerning prehistorical period,some artifacts of the Roman conquest, collection of arms and coins. Unfortunately,an exposition about the history of foundation and development of the city itself is almost lack. As for me a miniature maquette... More

A Nice Small Museum located off the square in Sibiu, I would recommend seeing this at least once as there are plenty of things to see.

A very nice museum housed by an old palace,Altemberger House.Old jewels,weapons,pottery,guild flags.As minuses:they have hundreds of old rifles presented in a small room,on simple wood racks,looking like an warehouse rather than a museum hall;the museum employees are following you step by step,staying too close,making you feel like a thief... To take photos you have to pay a exaggerated big fee.... More

If you care a little bit about history, this museum will severely disappoint you. Full of dummies, very little information provided, badly lit and chaotic. A real shame, as it wouldve been interesting to know more about the Dacian parst of the region.
