The official opening of Brukenthal National Museum
February 25, 1817
The Brukenthal National Museum was built in the late of 18th century in Sibiu, Transylvania, Romania, housed in the palace of Samuel von Brukenthal – who was Habsburg governor of Transylvania and who established its first collections around 1790. The collections were officially opened to the public in 1817, making it the oldest institution of its kind in Romania.
Now it is a complex of six museums, which, without being separate administrative entities, are situated in different locations around the city and have their own distinct cultural programs.
