Loved walking around this park setting with historical houses from all the regions of Romania and the associated old equipment that was used. The range of roofing material, fencing, carpentry etc was fascinating. We were there during the school holidays and they had children's craft programs - it was great to see the children enjoying the opportunity to learn different... More

The village museum is an excellent overview on Rumanian's different regions in terms of (past) architecture. I was surprised with how much attention to detail the houses were collected, dismantled and re-erected in that park. Ideal for a nice walk with the family and to discover the beauty and variety of the country.

Visiting The Village Museum in Bucharest, Romania was a fun, learning experience for me and my family. In order to preserve part of Romania's history, Romanians decided to collect homes and farms from all parts of Romania to create this outdoor museum that houses over a hundred different examples of dwellings. It gives visitors a true idea of how modestly... More

We spent more than an hour here at this outdoor museum that is dedicated to the homes/lives of the different areas of Romania. Unfortunately, not of all of the homes are open to view but we were able to see some. Inside you can see the original furnishings of each home that has been brought from all over the countryside...

Our river cruise included this as an optional tour. We went on our own instead. Lovely "village" of old Romanian counrtyside houses gathered togerther in a park in Bucharest. About 80 houses in a village atmosphere, along with tools and "machinery" from the 1700 and 1800s. Very interesting. English signage so no real need for a guide. The village is... More

We spent an hour or so exploring many of the old buildings. Wonderful way to see the history of Romanian housing. When you're finished walk the rest of the park, get an ice cream, or rent a row boat. Lots of shade when the sun is hot.

Village Museum shows some features of Romanian rural life history and offers a wide variety of different houses from different rural zones in Romania. Good for history lovers.. but it may be boring for some people..

A must see for ethnology/culture lovers. Best to visit during spring/autumn in a sunny day. Mainly, it is a park with peasant houses and other (small) traditional romanian building from medieval and modern ages.

Very nice open air museum located in the Harastau park. The cost is 10 lei for adult. 2.5 lei for student with student card. Most of the houses are closed for visitors and practically all of them are quiet the same but still nice experience that you should not miss , especially if you are already visiting the park.
