Beautiful textiles and handiworks of Romania even included a village house and church. Cost was reasonable at 8Lei per person ( less for seniors). Photo taking cost an additional 60 Lei ($15US) Some cards in French, German and English at each room to explain artifacts. Web links offered minimal information in English. Definitely a must when visiting Bucharest. Closed on... More

A very interesting museum, though the exhibitions are presented in a way that isn't very informative for visitors who don't know Romanian traditions well. A guide book, or ideally a guide, is recommended to make your visit worthwhile.

The guide books rave about this museum, but I found it quite disappointing. This is in part because I rented the English audio guide. The supercilious English voice almost immediately began to preach at me in a really off-putting way about the importance of Christian faith to peasant life -- and to us all. This continued throughout the "tour," and... More

This museum is definitely worth visiting and. as in your pocket says, its great for kids. I particularly liked it for the chaotic jumbled atmosphere, with endless interesting exhibits of all shapes, sizes and types stretching out for room after room after room. It is definitely not a stuffy boring museum and you will learn something about the people from... More

Went here on the way to the village museum. Entry was reasonable, but the price of taking pictures was crazy! We didn't bother. Glad we didn't as there really wasn't a lot to take pictures of. For a reasonable price it was worth spending 30 mins there, but if we'd paid for the camera as well, we'd have felt ripped... More

When I visit a museum, no matter what type or where in the world I am, I ask the question "Who is the audience, who was this museum made for." This one has me stumped. First of all let me say, I loved it. It was beautifully designed, perfectly laid out and filled with interesting, colorful and meaningful objects and... More

Two aisles,at the ground floor are housing very few exhibits,at big distances one to another,generally romanian traditional costumes and a lot of religious objects.The exhibits(many of them bulk placed, like at the flea market) have no explanation nor in romanian or in another language so the available audio guide is compulsory. The only interesting parts are a wind mill,in extremely... More

Romania is a fast developing country and things are changing fast. All the more reason then to keep a special place in the capital to show visitors the old Romania. The museum is a collection of mainly wooden rural cottages with some of the artefacts that would have been used in them, including things like looms and kitchen ware. There... More

The emphasis on attributing everything to religion detracts from a display with promise. The audio tapes are not up to museum quality. The collection of Communist material in the basement is not translated to English nor explained. Save your time. Go to the Village Museum instead.

Romanian Peasant Museum is a museum of reference to understand the spirit of the Romanian people. The museum is located near the square Victoriei, easily reached from the airport or central areas of the city. The building was built in Neo-Romanian style by architect N. Ghica Budesti. In 1902 King Carol I lay the cornerstone of this museum. The museum... More
