You should visit this museum; especially the art gallery was excellent. Brukental National Museum is in the market square and you can easily reach there.

Found this museum quite expensive. Did not enjoy most of it but then I am not much of a museum person. The lower portions we really enjoyed. If I did it again I would not pay for a full tour, just do the lower levels....More

Not only huge number of paitings but also an oriental collection, original furniture and wall papers are on display. It is woth to visit if you are interested in paintings. It is really tiresome, especially for kids. Unfortunately many paintings are far from the visitor...More

I was here two days ago and opted just for the European art side as the Romanian art is just 18-20th centuries. There are two separate tickets and combined is a bit pricey for Romania. There is also a separate exorbitant fee for taking photos....More
