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

The Peasant Museum (Muzeul Taranului Roman) costs 8 Lei ( Oct 25 2014 ) and must be visited to get an idea of Romanian rural life. The exhibits are neatly displayed and well maintained. Though english text is not always available to explain all the exhibits, you will get a good idea of the background and environment that typical rural... More

There is not much information in English (not that I feel there should be) or information in general. The idea I think is to get a feel from the exhibits about the way people lived in the past. This is something you would not get in the UK. Things are generally more organised and commercialised. The UK could learn from... More

Peasant museum is well designed to cover different aspects of Romanian national identity. It tells stories of the people who lived generations before. They also give hints of how the current day Romanian identity is formed over the years. There are different exhibits from daily items, religious items to a reconstructed 70's classroom. Even more impressive were the giant mills... More

We visited the Peasant Museum. Excellent exhibit, with very clear descriptions on cards in English. Unfortunate that they charge 60 lei (about $16) to take photos, which I was not willing to pay. That limits my enthusiasm for the museum somewhat. More and more museums have unrestricted photo priviledges. Costumes were great, lots of icons, 2 complete buildings.

I have to confess: I didn't visit the museum because I didn't have time. I was looking for gifts to take home and visited the shop. Excellent. It's packed with embroidered peasant blouses and shirts made of heavy linen, ceramics, rugs, leather ware, icon paintings on glass, decorated eggs, jewelry, wooden boxes and painted spoons, etc. You'll need time to...

A friend recommended me to go there. I enjoyed my tour, they have great exhibition projects. It’s a museum that lets you discover the Romanian history and spirit throughout manuscripts, pictures and objects. Remember there was this room all planned as an old reconstructed Romanian peasant room and, inside of it (in general the rule is not to touch the... More

If you are fascinated with romanias beautiful traditional costumes, as I am, you should not miss this museum. The museum shop is also fascinating with heaps and piles of costume parts for sale. Near the metro station piata victoriei. Do remember you have to pay extra for the permission to use a camera inside the museum. The woman at admissions... More

Together with the "National gallery" of the National Museum of Arts and Zambaccian (small) museum, The Peasant Museum holds high the standards of museums in Bucharest. A visit is a journey of introspection. It challenges one to seek answers to the Questions of life while offering you the chance to contemplate the answers found and expressed in the everyday life...

It's not easy to find because the's no sign to museum with English name only Romanian, but if found it probably won't disappoint you. It has pretty nice and diverse collection of items used by people living in villages. It's not huge museum so it won't overwhelm you and you walk away happy but not tired. The one upset is... More
