  • A museum (that you have) to visit, no doubt! I liked it a lot: the atmosphere, the exhibitions, the design and the arrangements, all those very interesting items, the diversity of the offers and so on! The staff was polite but probably those people (that show me each room) have an administrative role - they cannot tell me too much details when I've asked them some questions! This was embarrassing and, of course, I did not like such a situation... But the Altemberger house, a patrimonial monument, is amazing and it also has a huge interior courtyard where you may discover different sculptural busts in metal (I think) of some (inter)national personalities from Romania. Probably this German family was very rich because the house is almost a palace - as I told you, is an amazing place to visit! One single complaint - they did not allow you to make pictures!!! Wow! Or, if you want it very much, you have to pay a lot of money! Look, the ticket is 18 lei, the tax for photography is 120 lei, more than ten times bigger than the price of the ticket! Impossible to understand this kind of approach, right?!
  • A very nice and informative museum. I would recommend that you will buy the 2 days ticket (45RON/adult) and you can visit all 6 museums from the Brukenthal collection. It's worth it.
