I really like this museum and I absolutely love their museum shop (located in the back--if you get a chance, all the stuff is handmade and the art is from local artists). Service isn't the best, but then again, you don't really need it...walking around the place is a treat, and you get to see a lot of interesting things.... More

The peasant play an important role in the Romanians understanding of their country. This is a really nice museum. It can be visited with children. Not everything is translated, but this is OK. The second part of the museum is not well indicated. You have to exit through the school room. There you will cross a courtyard with a collection... More

We visited the Peasant Museum on the last day of our two week private tour of Romania. After seeing so much relating to the Peasant in Northern Romania, it was still exciting to see the history that pre-dated what we had seen in the 21st century. The exhibits with huge buildings and parts of buildings inside large display halls were... More

I've visited this museum as a child in the 90s, and most recently earlier this year. It feels like nothing's changed in between. The museum could be so much more interesting if they put some effort into giving visitors a better experience. None of the pieces on exhibit have descriptions next to them, they are numbered and each room has... More

We spent a morning visiting this museum. It was great to see how the poorer people of the Romanian society lived. There were fine examples of embroidery and weaving; clothing made from sheepskin and other animal skins; stained glass painting; a wooden windmill and certain wooden machinery used in the production of wool. There also was an ancient church inside... More

This museum provides detailed information about Romanian peasant life. There are numerous artifacts displayed, providing an overview on the simple and spiritual life of Rural Romania. I would highly recommend renting the audio guide (12 lei). While there are some English information provided (i.e. fact sheet in the front of the room), you get a much better understanding of the...

An incredible collection of traditional peasant artefacts, costumes and icons. Even some reconstructed buildings. Don't miss going downstairs to the exhibition of Soviet period land collectivisation which ironically destroyed the peasant way of life. Unfortunately there is no English signage here but the anti-propaganda cartoons mostly speak for themselves! At the back of the building there is a very good... More

This is the most boring museum I've ever been to. The staff were unfriendly and unhelpful. They charge you 30 lei to take one photograph. I would never go back or recommend this museum. Avoid.

The museum could be splendid. Its collections included entire village churches, rebuilt inside the museum, thousands of peasant artifacts and a recreated village school room. The problem is that half the time you don't know what you are looking at. The descriptions that do exist are truly weird. I wonder if the writer was stoned at the time of writing.... More

If you have a real interest in the culture of the Romanian people, then you will be delighted with this place. A series of large rooms with many examples of craftsmanship, from hundreds of carved wooden eggs, religious paintings and outfits to an entire house, reconstructed inside one room. I personally found out to be a rather bemusing experience, with... More
