Baron Samuel von Brukenthal’s wish to turn his palace in one of the most important European arts museum came true a few years after his death, in 1817 when the palace opened its gates to the large public for the very first time.
Two centuries later, in 2010, the Brukenthal Museum was awarded the European Union Prize for Cultural Heritage / Europa Nostra.
Nowadays, the three sections of the museum - The European Art Galleries, the Romanian Art Galleries and the Contemporary Art Galleries exhibit an extremely rich and diverse set of paintings, sculptures, engravings and cartography. Some of the noteworthy artists whose works are exhibited in the museum are: Jan van Eyck, Antonello da Messina, Hans Memling, Lorenzo Lotto, Pieter Bruegel, Franz Neuhauser, Theodor Aman, Nicolae Grigorescu, Ştefan Luchian, Nicolae Tonitza, Corneliu Baba and many others.
However, besides its rich collection the palace - a baroque monument itself is impressive through its excellently preserved architecture, interior and exterior details and furniture, most of the items more than two centuries old.
