The House of Arts

Sibiu, judetul Sibiu

AddressPiata Mica, 21


The Art House - Emil Sigerus Museum of Sibiu is known as 'Butchers' Hall and is one of the oldest „guild houses”.

Documentary certified in 1370, the historical monument located in the Small Square of Sibiu, is one of the most interesting building that embodies the type of a medieval trading hall.

The touristic site - "Hall Butchers" is a two level building. The ground floor worked as commercial space dedicated to the cutting and selling of meat. The floor of the building worked in the past as the meeting place of butchers, but for a brief period served as headquarters for the furriers guild.

Between 1967-1972 held its first restoration work, during which the roof of the building has regained its original appearance. Also with these papers have been reopened ground floor arcades.

The building received the name "House of Arts" with its entry into Brukenthal Museum possession, somewhere at the end of the twentieth century when the building has played a public utility for storage of contemporary art exhibitions downstairs and the upstairs space.

On 1 August 1007, the House of Arts becomes the Saxon Ethnography Museum "Emil Sigerus. Currently at the ground floor can be viewed the Folk Art Galleries and the handicraft workshops and the first floor houses a exhibition hall.

The attic built recently to plays the role of storage for the wood and ceramic Saxon collections. The floor of the building worked in the past as the meeting place of butchers guild, but for a brief period served as headquarters for the furriers guild..
