Collection(s)The building of the museum was built at the beginning of the 20th century by August von Spiess, former hunting master of the Romanian Royal House. In 1975, the house became the property of the state and in 1976 was given for administration to the Brukenthal Museum. The Hunting Museum grew from several collections: the cinegetic collection of the Transylvanian Society for Natural Sciences of Sibiu, Witting collection and Spiess collection, and objects acquired from various sources. The exhibits include hunting weapons and trophies (Spiess collection), poaching weapons, traps and snares, naturalized animals, photographs. Most of the trophies were from the Carpathian Mountains and got medals at various competitions. The collection comprises also wildlife with hair - 1202 items, wildlife with feathers - 150 items, complementary materials (weapons, tools and accessories for hunting), exotic trophies, and African weapons. At present the museum has over 1,600 goods.
