If you have never traveled the Romanian countryside, visited villages in different regions of this interesting country, this is the closest you can still get to old traditions, customs, life styles. The collection is made of houses with interiors specific to various geographical areas. The houses themselves and likewise their interiors are quite different, depending of the regions they represent.... More

Muzeul Satului is one of the most interesting places that you must visit and you have to spend almost all day to visit all those amazing houses that represents the way of the Romanian builds their houses the previous centuries.When i was there they have also an organic food festival with a lot of things to taste and to drink.

For many years this project has brought a lot of pleasure to local as well international tourists. It has houses, in natural size and forms, from all over the country. Of course will be nice to visit them in their natural surroundings, but who has money and time for that?!… So, visit this place if you are in the area.... More

What i like most is that you see a whole village as it was in old times and not just a museum with some pieces of art.also, if you have a guide he\she will explain you all the details that you can't find on your own.it's impressive because all the kinds of houses that you see in movies of old...

When in Bucharest, I think that the Village Museum is one of the top must-go-to places. Its outdoor setting makes it very pleasant to walk among traditional Romanian houses. It is also a very practical way of diving into the traditional Romanian life and get a glimpse at its architecture, art, and much more. If you have the opportunity to... More

Really neat to tour the village - unfortunately, the houses were closed so we couldn't tour the inside, which would have been awesome. It's a nice walk throughout the area and cats are everywhere so if you like cats, it is fun to try to make friends with them (I do). Neat seeing how housing changed over the years and... More

We visited this museum while doing a start-up at a seed corn facility. The museum was in the middle of a park by a nice lake, near our hotel. The museum had displays of the architectures of various houses, and structures from all over Romania. It was inexpensive yet quite informative. I enjoyed the walk through time back in Romania.

The museum itself is lovely to visit and the surroundings are beautiful on a sunny day. Fee is very decent and you can take as many photos as you want. Best way to learn about different regions of the country and their specific architecture. However be careful, when leaving we took a private taxi and he wanted to charge 10x... More
