It sounds a bit lame : all this old houses moved to this spot from all over Romania but actually it was pretty interesting and a very nice walk on an afternoon . You can have a snack and a drink too.

Visiting "Village Museum" is like visiting Romanian villages in short time. There are houses all over Romania land. The variety is very interesting and helps the visitor to get an idea of the way people lived in past in country side.
