Text from the curators:

Brukenthal Museum is not only a two centuries old witness of history but also one of its survivors and, not in the least, one of its winners. Thought by his founder, Baron Samuel von Brukenthal, in the late 18th c., it managed to preserve its cultural identity after two world wars, the communist period and the historical uncertainties that followed.
For the museum, the 21st century began with two essential events: Sibiu European Capital of Culture in 2007 and the Order of "Cultural Merit" in the rank of Commander, Category E "National Cultural Heritage", conferred in 2017 to Brukenthal National Museum by the President of Romania, Mister Klaus Iohannis, on the occasion of celebrating 200 years since the public inauguration.
Opened in the Grand Square of Sibiu, the exhibition presents synthetically the evolution of the institution during the period delineated by the two events mentioned above, through the means of documentary images.
The 28 panels focus on the milestones in the recent history of the museum but also of the communities in which the museum is organically comprised – the city, the people, the country.
