The palace has a collection of 18th C furniture, two fine portraits of St Ignatius Loyola and St Francis Loyola by Paul Rubens. There are two fine Bruegel paintings, a fine Jan van Eyck, along with a number of 19thC Romanian artists. The building is also a worthwhile place to visit.

Well worth visiting for the exhibits (paintings, furniture, etc.) and its fine and elegant interior. We went in as a group and the entrance fee was included in our tour around Romania.

Just imagine stumbling across a fantastic Breugel painting (Massacre of the Innocents) in rural Romania! This is a real gem of a museum - not only the Bruegel, but so many other world-class works.
In one wing of the museum there was an excellent exhibition of dance cards - used by women to record to whom they were promised for each dance of the evening at a ball. A fascinating piece of social history.
You've be mad to miss this museum!

It costs next to nothing and is just a treat when you're wanting to get off the road. I spent an hour playing dress up!

We always visited the Brumenthal National Museum it’s nice and we recommend the chocolate that you can buy it.

The collection of things is amazing and the paintings are worth your time.
