  • There is much, European art Romanian art and another in the Brukenthal Museum. Everything worth seeing, although not quite simply makes the various cards and their scopes to go through. And that the ticket seller can no foreign languages, but not necessarily help.

  • Experience the living space of 18th century wealthy Lord. You can feel the rich culture surrounded Louis 14-style Chair pianoforte, Salon space, filled with music and art. Unfortunately, non-photo surly guards have watched much; Also 17th-century Netherlands painting collection is also quite impressive and fun.

  • Very nice museum. Great selection of Romanian and Italian art and a great atmosphere. The inner courtyard is also very nice for relaxation.
  • The most remarkable museum not only in Sibiu, but in the whole of raegiona. If you like museums, make sure you visit.
  • The Romanian Art Gallery is populated with removable pieces of authentic Romanian art. It is the first public museum in Romania established mid 1800 by Samuel Brukenthal helped by his wife. The pieces are not that well lighted and some of them have the frames too big and fancy for the greatness of the paintings. The floor is very noisy around some areas. Because of these tree things you won't get the best experience but this is defenately a must see in Romania.
  • It is a very nice building with very nice ancient furniture. Important Rumanian paintings. The European collection is nothing special.
  • A museum worth visiting, with lots of works of art
