Huge site and very interesting. It's a shame that more buildings were not open to see inside. Plenty of signage in English to explain what the exhibits are.

AWESOME; really pleasant walk during which you can see different historic house types from various regions of Romania; good setup, great location (on one side of Herastrau Park), many times they have exhibitions of local folk art or traditional cuisine. Really really nice visit.

The architecture is quite typical of houses in that era and showcased many types. There were also large fowls and a cock which caught many visitors' attention.

A huge variety of crafts available to purchase from handmade dolls, replica icons, handmade wooden toys, copper kitchenware, beaded jewellery, honey and jams, painted wooden eggs and... More

The relocation of the type of houses of the different villages througout Romania with the history of that region was very interesting. The handmade goods they sell is also very interesting. Well worth spending the morning there. Entry fee not expensive. Combined with the "hop on, hop off" city tours bus also worked very well. Bus stop in front of... More

If you wan't know more about Romania, then you must visit Village Museum. The museum contain farms and houses from all over the country, and provided a lot of information about the way the house was made and how the life of peasants was. All the buildings where relocated in Bucharest from rural of Romania. You will find english text.

These are the original buildings and some are open so that you get some sense of the furnishings. The park was very nice and included a cafe if you needed refreshments. The... More
