I always loved learning through seeing, touching, feeling. The village museum is a great place where you can get in touch with Romania's history, culture, architecture and way of living. You get a great idea of how people of different regions built their houses, arranged the household. It is a place that will save your time, especially if you do... More

This was a very strange museum but it was enjoyable and we had a lovely time exploring the houses. We visited on a really hot day. After arriving at the 'Aviatorilor' Meteo stop, we had a lovely to stroll through the largest park in Bucharest to get to the entrance. Once inside (cost = 10 lei which is less than... More

it is one of the best place to walk. Is like walking around old Romanian villages. A lot of interesting houses. When it is organised a traditional expo or market you can find a lot of lovely traditional objects to buy.

It's like the tv show through the key hole but through buildings mostly houses but some windmills and presses too from every region in the country from the 17th to 20th century. On the one hand it is fascinating but many of the houses do look alike. I recommend seeing it as there is nothing quite like it and it... More
