Text from the curators:
The exhibition presents 300 pieces (objects and documents that belonged to Samuel von Brukenthal or reflect his work) currently in the collections of the museum or other museums and archives, in the country and abroad; the research was generally based on the Brukenthal National Museum's collections, the State Archives and Brukenthal Library, but also on the bibliography referring to the personality and reforming activity of the baron.
Due to its online nature, the exhibition is adapted to the new recommendations for pandemic prevention and also to the trend of supporting access to culture.
From a thematic point of view, we aim to bring to the forefront the personality, political and cultural activity, passions and legacy of Baron Samuel von Brukenthal.
