Recreations of different areas of the country are represented via cottages, tools, equipment, gardens, and so forth. The resident cats will keep you company, and there is even a little restaurant where you can stop for refreshments. Located beside a lake, it is a beautiful place for a stroll.

It's mostly outdoors and without cover so put on your sunscreen when you venture out. You can take photos of the original villager structures procured from many villages. But you can NOT take photos inside the buildings (bummer). Will need to venture here again for more photos and to take more time when the weather is cooler.

To my knowledge there is no other such museum in Europe. It has houses from all regions of Romania, and there are some spots where you can sample food from all these regions. It is a must see place.

So this is a pretty cool museum. A bunch of old houses/huts/churches/etc were picked up and moved to this museum. They also included the furnishings down to the carpets. However, there were a couple things I didn't like. First, the audio guide is an app you have to download (they have free wifi in the entry area for this purpose),... More

I loved this museum as it was amazing to see the different building types from around Romania. The houses were well preserved and the museum well laid out. It was so peaceful there.

This lively museum is perfect for anyone who can't stay in Romania longer and explore all the different regions with its lovely villages. It brings everything together in one single area right next to a lake and is certainly worth a visit, especially when it's sunny. It must've been a huge effort to bring all the houses here. I was...

Close to the large park in Bucharest, got a cheap taxi here on a very hot day in August, went early to avoid the heat of midday. Filled with traditional houses from all over the countryside of Romania, all put together in this fascinating museum. Some local crafts on sale and a good shop for souvenirs. Cheap entry fee. Has...

It is like another world. Very old houses, very old farming tools. It was a nice experience for us. It took us about 4 hours to see it and it is very beautiful.
