The museum is a part of romanian traditions. You can see all sorts of types if houses from different parts of the country. The best is to visit during the spring and summer when the weather it's warm. The entry in very cheap. Around 5-10 lei, that is between 1-2 Euro.

Buildings from other areas of Romania are on exhibit in this outdoor museum. Only a few houses were open to view the inside and I would like to have been able to actually enter the room to see them more closely but this is a wonderful place to visit. It is a large area with lots of buildings so be... More

Interesting outdoor living museum. Best part of the exhibits were the craftsmen making leather shoes, straw baskets, and wooden children's toys. Recommend that you carefully remember the entrance in which you entered. The museum covers a large area, and it is easy to get lost.

Great place for wandering around without an agenda - and far larger than I anticipated when I planned going here. As the name suggests it gives a good representation of rural village life. Beautiful section of the park and peaceful to explore. I was pretty disappointed that during my visit I couldn't properly see inside most of the buildings -... More

The tour we participated in at the Village museum was less spectacular than advertised and a lot more challenging to navigate that the literature described. Three members of our group dropped out in the first 30 minutes and chose to return to sit on the bus.

This museum, set in Bucharest's finest park, is a splendid collection of varied traditional and colourful rural houses brought here from all parts of Romania, including wooden churches. They are laid out in the parkland along country paths, and most of their interiors are open to visitors. Occasionally a band of instrumentalists can be heard playing tuneful traditional music, and...

Beautifully restored and kept buildings, fascinating glimpses into the past of the country. Covers quite a large area in a lovely location. Also enjoyed the music and dancing display there. Well worth a visit

If you don't have time to make a tour of Romania, this museum will make you want to come back and visit the countryside. It contains houses more than 100 years old from all the regions of Romania, displaying epoch furniture, tools and folk costumes. It's awesome! All of them spread out on the border of a lake with a...

I went to visit Herestrau Park and the Village Museum which is located to one side of the park, near the Arc de Triomph. I wasn't expecting the Museum to be quite so vast. There are over a hundred buildings and I pretty much managed to see them all. They are beautifully looked after and clearly painstakingly reconstructed. The inside... More
