old houses, sometimes traditional fairs in the yards of the old houses, traditional costumes, restaurant, and many more other interesting things... it is located in one of the most beautiful parks: Herastrau park - easy access by metro, taxi, busses

I the very crowded Bucharest is lovely to find a place where you can simply enjoy the landscape and relax for a while, away from the city rush and the everyday problems. I worked nearby the museum and always liked to take a walk within the museum, just wondering between the rustic houses and windmills, enjoying the view of the... More

A little disappointing only 2 houses were open to go inside - though the onsite cafe was good. So much more could have been done to make it interesting

A place I always like to visit, no matter the season as it is like a park but more interesting! It is actually near the Herastrau park and you can see the old ancient Romanian houses from different regions very well reproduced. Entrance price ok

The lifestyle of these descendants of... More

If you visit Herastrau park you should see this area with all the historical residence of Romanian country. It's quite interesting and you can learn a lot o things but for me it wasn't one of the best attractions in Bucharest.

Great place to visit in spring or summer. Really connects with the roumaniam culture and traditions. Open air museum, what could you want more? Not to miss for the foreign tourists

Late afternoon I went to the Village museum. It was a lovely day with good weather. It was very nice to see the different styles of homes in Romania. I can imagine it is a good look into the rest of Romania if you do't have the time to visit all those places in person. All in all a wonderful... More
