Firstly you have to find it.....and even with a local driver plus being alongside one of the largest parks in Bucharest its not that easy. Just needs better signposting in English. Once you arrive you can be struck by the quality of the entrance which is old fashioned but part modern. At a cost of 10 lei it is a... More

I was so taken in by this museum as you see the various villages from different times. I will recommend that if you like some of the handicraft the ladies are making ask them if you can purchase. I could not get enought of this museum as I reflect on the times decades ago

Not a typical museum - loved the living aspect and that it is all outdoors. Found the dwellings very unique and creative. What a great concept from inception to design to finished product! The crafts sold inside the museum property in front of some of the homes and along the paths were beautiful and very reasonably priced. These artisans are... More

This outdoor museum offers a fantastic collection of buildings from around rural Romania. It is is a beautiful setting near the city's most scenic park. Our only disappointment is that most of the houses were not open and could only be viewed from the outside.

The place is out in the sun and we were there in a hot day. I think even 10 hours is reasonable but no less then 3 hours. A lot of history in one place. At least they had fountains with water to drink. The toilets were horrible.

As other have mentioned, this is a large, open air museum, with dozens of homes relocated from the countryside. It provides a glimpse into rural and peasant life back in the early to mid 1900’s. One of these historic houses is depicted on the 10 lei bill. The placards are in Romanian and English, and provide a good overview/background of... More

One of the highlights of Romania. The museum is compact and easy to walk around. There is a cafe (Hancul) on the grounds but it was overpriced and quite frankly the food was bland. If you want to buy traditional good quality handicrafts then this is the place in Romania to buy them although overpriced. I found the same quality... More

Unbelievable amount of work that went into this and that at one point this collection of homes were occupied. Very insightful and well maintained.

Perfect place for a lovely sunny day, to visit this museum. The museum contains a lot of the Romanian culture and how people used to live, from their houses to the 'ustensisl' they were using in the past
