Peasants are not usually the class of people with which museums are filled. That is a shame because usually wat more people live like that than the upper class. This museum shows lovely arts and crafts from the several regions of Romania were the authentic products are made.

The collection is housed in a large Gothic building and spread over two floors and a basement. Everything from ceramics through to wooden and clay toys and whole room settings.

It is very nice especially during Easter when there are a lot of artisans with hand made products. The museum is not very big, there you can find different things related to the Romania country side.

This museum is displaying artifacts, clothes, furniture, tools, even some houses, ornaments, and all kind of items that were used in the Romanian villages from oldest times. Since there was a time when peasants lived in dug out dirt huts, we can see such an abode here. I find the organization of the Museum, visitor friendly, easy to follow, and... More

We ended up here by mistake because we actually wanted the taxi driver to take us to the Village Museum but unfortunately he didn’t seem to know Bucharest very well and kept looking at my map!!! This is basically a museum of Romanian peasant life. It is fairly interesting but there is very little information in English. There is an... More

The building is very nice but the exhibition is not so impressive, as compared with the Village Museum. However, you can participate to several events organized in the building, including a cinema for old or international movies (others than western).

For my money this museum, along with the Stavropoleos church, is one of the two sights that no visitor to Bucharest should miss (well, you can go to the Parliament Palace if you want, if only to point and laugh at the excess). On one level the museum contains exactly what you would expect - displays of peasant artefacts, religious... More

The museum was fine way to spend an hour...nothing too special. The museum staff is quite rude and made my experience unpleasant. They will follow you through the museum; perhaps it's an interactive way to demonstrate the secret police.

The entrance fee is small and the rewards are plenty. You will dive into a world of traditions and folklore that are stored inside the walls of that museum. Well worth the visit. They don't have a good, modern system of describing the objects. Unfortunately, there is no brochure or guide or anything available besides a number or a code... More
