Small collection but very enjoyable. The building on the inside is beautiful and worth the time. Give yourself a couple of hours.

I would not call this a must-see, but there is some lovely art here. It has a decent Renaissance collection, but a lot of the paintings and sculptures seem to have been created by A. Nonymous. Nothing really outstanding but a pleasant and manageable museum.

Beautiful renovated gallery in near the centre. Helpful staff, even with limited English and my no Romanian language skills! Some great artefacts on display in a light and old building. I recommend visiting, even on a snowy day!
