This museum exhibiting some of the most earliest houses, implements, and instruments are amazing.

We stumbled across this place on our walk in the park. Glad we visited because it was a great way to learn about some of the history of Bucharest and see how the people had lived their lives spanning across centuries ago.

It's a great place to visit! Me and my husband went there in august and we loved it! We are both architects and the tour was very interesting and we actually learned a few things! We both recommend visiting the Village Museum!

If you want to see houses and authentic ports hundreds of years old you have to go there. It is located near Herestrau Park, the largest park in Bucharest.
