Not a place I would return to. Village was a bit simple and on the day we went over 50% of the "homes" were closed. The one's that were open were all basically the same. Nice park to walk though but nothing spectacular

Very nice museum where houses and churches coming from the whole Romania has been transported. It gives you the possibility to see typical construction of other part of Romania. The negative part is the awful smell coming from the stagnant water of Danube: in this spot close between the village and the little island housing a civic park Inside you'll... More

I was really looking forward to visiting the Village Museum, but I left feeling a bit disappointed. There were no docents at all when I visited on Saturday, so I have to assume there never are. Each of the buildings had a sign as to what the building was used for, and the signage was in Romanian but only passable... More

The Village Museum is a one-of-a-kind gem located alongside a peaceful lake in central Bucharest. It captures in one place various types of houses and other buildings that have existed throughout rural Romania for a long time. Because it is outdoors, be sure to go in favorable weather - you will be rewarded if you do. It should be on... More

Well presrved original homes from Romanian villages takes a couple of hours to see them all. Pensioners are admitted for half price.

We had a private guide. The buildings were excellent demonstrations of rural/village life in Romania. You can easily spend several hours absorbing the culture. There were also vendors selling local wares.

The Village Museum is wonderful and a Don't Miss if you're in Bucharest. Buildings of all sorts gathered from throughout the country are amazing to behold. Mills, barns, homes...even a bus stop shelter, complete with explanatory illustrations. If you've not been to similar "collections" in Wales, Ireland or the wonderful Openlucht Museum in Arhem, Netherlands, you'll be delighted with the... More
