I read the reviews on trip advisor, and thought I must see this Museum. I didn't find it all that interesting. The buildings are replicas of small farm homesteads in Romania. Except for the thatched roofs, they aren't very different from the old farm homesteads that are still standing in America. I guess it depends on what you like. There... More

The cost was cheap and a self-guided tour of the houses is pretty cool- I did take a bit too much of an interest in the king's residence which is co-located with the museum. Make sure to check out the ferris wheel.

Here you can see many houses [all original, they just moved them from many places. Not replicas as someone incorrectly said in another tripadvisor review] from all over Romania. Many were "rescued" and then nicely restored. Good for a few hours of a pleasant stroll around with or without kids. Entrance is 10 Lei, discount for "pensionar" [5 Lei]. In... More

When told there was a village museum, I thought it was an indoor museum (for the town), but it is a huge area of villages. Awesome, there were little houses/barns/churches etc reconstructed from various regions around Romania. Was wonderful to see.

A wonderful museum. We even got to see a lovely exhibition of old icons and diptychs. The houses and the information plaques were very good but because it was already the winter months, the houses themselves were closed. We were able to look into one of them through the windows though. A friendly cat couple followed us around as though... More

Visiting this museum is a step back in time, in the old Romanian village. You're going to be surrounded by folk art, never ending supply of painted icons and wooden spoons. There are wooden houses and other interesting structures that at one point where part of a Romanian village, all open, in a village like setting. Entrance fee is small... More

Once you pass the admission gate you will be transported to Romanian village life with houses, folk art and much more. Different regions of the country are well represented. The museum is like nothing else in Europe, the old feudal times are coming back to memory, everything is original and hard to see these days unless you get to a... More

I visited the museum on a cold, but sunny, November day. On entering the complex you're immediately transported into a peaceful, rural setting despite being next to a major arterial road. There's a great variety of village houses, work areas and churches all of which have excellent descriptions on adjacent boards. The interior of the churches are amazing and I... More
