This museum is very interesting if you really like to see traditional houses, cloths and their tools otherwise you'll be bored because It's a modest museum far from the downtown. The staff (too much the Museum) are not professional, I would say that they are volunteers because they are all time with their phones and they don't speak any other... More

One of my fave museums ever and have done alot all over the world. An eye fest I actually liked there being not much info to read. On the way out I purchased a book on the museum. My only criticism would be of the staff speaking loudly on their phones spoiling the atmosphere of the place.

At risk of sounding like an ignorant, ill-educated, protoplasmic buffoon, I don't feel that the Peasant Museum is a "Must See" attraction in Bucharest. On a visit during a two day trip to the capital I ventured to the Museum with my girlfriend after seeing high praise and recommendations in print and on TripAdvisor. The site offers two floors full... More

I am not too sure what the curator is thinking but given the location and the potential footfall this museum should be a lot better. There are hardly any descriptions of what the objects are and when there is - it was written in a poetic language. There were loads of attendants about - all on their smartphone either conversing...

I always like to go there when my friends for other countries are coming to visit, it is a place where you can relax. You can find houses from all over Romania and see a little bit of the countryside life. Also the place si like a park and you'll have Herastrau lake there, is really beautiful. Don't miss this...

This museum was a severe let down. Not only were there no explanations about anything, it was like a pointless maze of crap. Maybe if I were a peasant, I'd find this vaguely interesting. Fortunately, I am actually filthy rich and so this was a waste of time. You are better off driving into the Romanian countryside and meeting some... More

Plenty of exhibits but no explanation on what anything was of why it was there, not even in Romania. I thought it would have some hilarious exhibits, instead it was boring. On the plus side it's very easy to blag student entry, simply say you are a student for a 75% discount. Still a waste of your time though. Thanks... More

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.
