Textiles, traditional costumes, a cottage, a mill, Orthodox art and artifacts, and even a live traditional market out in back.

Spent a couple of hours here. Whilst the building is impressive, the displays are somewhat lacking in presentation with hand written notes, a plethora of attendants on mobile phones and little in the way of notes to satisfy non-Romanian speakers.

even if you are living in Bucharest or you are a tourist, you should visit it. It is a great museum representing the history of the Romanian peasant. Although it is so much more about this subject that could be represented! i am not so happy that they are using old methods of representing the exponats. They should look to... More

One of the most extensive collections anywhere of Romanian peasant culture with extensive dress and art collections and rebuilt structures. It will take several hours to see it all but it's a very educational and well curated collection.

It is near Piata Victorie on soseaua kischellef acessible by metro station "Piata Victorie". A small entrance fee not know exactly and discounted price for students. Many individual sections for household things, clothes, paintings, etc. A section dedicated to present communist era. Photography is allowed but on payment of fee. Its nice but things are about 100-150 years old so... More

Ran out of time to visit the museum but had a great time finding gifts for the family and of course myself! The products are very good value and certainly there is something there for everyone. Next time, I will do all my shopping in the museum.

The artifacts seem interesting enough, but very little explanation exists in English. A lot of the sign were hand written in Romanian, which makes it interesting but unintelligible.

Good to visit if its raining! We went there en route to Village Museum. Limited explanations in English. It looks as if audio guides can be hired, but we only saw the sign when we left. Discount for over 65s!

Not sure where the other reviewers where looking when they rated this as good, I thought it was dreadful, icons and religion on the ground floor and communists in the basement. Avoid unless desperate.

An amazing and informative collection, really worth having a look at, especially the textiles. The objects are well preserved and fascinating, beautifully illustrating Romania's rich cultural and craft production history. Very few English captions, but this doesn't really matter. The building is old and a bit run down, but all the more reason to visit to help raise revenue! Also... More
