Stunning!

Beautiful museum, absolutely massive! Give yourself at least 2 hours to wander around. Sadly most the buildings are shut in Winter but you can still peer in the windows.

This place is nice if you want to get a quick look at what life was and sometimes still is like in the villages without having to leave Bucharest. It is a good place to go with kids because it is outside and they can run around. They have a play area behind their little restaurant which my oldest son... More

Stuck for a couple of hours? Good place to visit and see various different styles of houses and other buildings from around Romania all in one location. Built in 1936 with loads of relocated houses it's a great visit. Particularly like the Transilvsnia church.

Al Village Museum you can find a lot of romanian village houses, old but very good preserved. It shows romanian village history. You can also buy souvenires.

Good collection of old houses and annexes from different zones of Romania. Most of them from 18th and 19th century. Also displaying some "machinery" they used back then for different crafts. Being located next to Herastrau Park makes it a nice, quiet place to enjoy a walk outside and also learn a thing or two about how Romanians used to... More

You'll enter the building, pay 10 lei for adult and 2,5 for students, get out and see the old village. You'll see many of the primitive mechanical solutions for making oil, wine etc. Plus, nice houses
