The Village museum in Bucharest is the smaller part of another gorgeous park located I think near Sibiu. Still I can recommend it to visit. In summer it is great place to spend 3-4 hrs outside and away from the city, viewing different type of houses and other village buildings from many Romanian areas. I did enjoy this visit as... More

In this museum you walk between many historical buildings from different ages. A nice walk in nice suroundings.

Ask the hotel where you decide to stay at for directions to the Village Museum (you can easily reach it by bus; or by taxi if you don't want to bother with finding your way in the city). The Vilage Museum is an open space museum; you need comfortable shoes, a bottle of water and an hour to spare. Tips:... More

This museum is a very interesting and unusual outdoor museum. Historic houses and buildings (including churches) have been relocated from all over Romania. A sampling of these houses are open each day so you can look inside. They have artifacts from the area the house came from. It shows an amazing array of styles and construction. We were sorry we...

We went and visited the Village Museum with my aunt and uncle as our guides. They have been here before. It was beautiful and very interesting. It's a great place to walk around and explore, but you will get more out of it with a guide. It's so worth your time and money to go.

The 70 houses which make up the outdoor museum on the edge of the lake near the park. The nearest metro line was number 2 stop Aviatorilor. I got out and walked through the park you could walk along the road to the Arch of Triumph. The houses are close together at times like a strange eclectic village. Some half... More

The village museum is Romania's villages, traditions, history, nature - all wrapped into a park open air museum. All the houses inside the museum are original, including the inn and the wooden church. Everything has been disintegrated into little pieces and re-assembled in Bucharest in what was and still continues to be an ethnographic project. It is very interesting to... More

It has a lot of information. I very much liked their app for smartphones that provides much information. The staff is not friendly, but then again so it's in most Bucharest locations.

This is a large collection of typical Romanian buildings, mainly farmhouses and churches, from all over the country. It is in a lovely location beside the lake and the buildings are immaculately presented. If you only go to one place in Bucharest then this should be it. This is a lovingly presented monument to Romanian life as it was in... More

Lovely and informative collection of houses, sheds and agricultural buildings. Brings the past to life in an interesting way. Well worth it.
