This museum is amazing, it has so many interesting things in there(art, history, architecture). You can always find something to see and to learn about. The staff is amazing, can tell you everything about the things in the museums.

The old estate of the Brukenthal family turn museum and housing some of their collection of art and other Romanian, French and Italian pieces of art. Worth taking a couple hours to check out. Sit in the garden before or after enjoying a coffee.

While the collection itself is interesting, and the layout of the place is intuitive, which helps not miss any of the rooms, the lighting was inadequate as we could not see the paintings properly.
