Nice place. In the spring or summer it's the perfect place to go out and just walk. It's NexT to Herastrau Park.

I visited this museum because i heard good things about it. I think it's important to know and understand our history and the way our ancestors lived. The items displayed are very interesting but there is almost no explanation about them. You just look at an object and try to figure the story behind it. They should update the way... More

I can't contribute a photo, as we were scolded and told not to take photos, yet everyone else did, so there's an issue with enforcement on this issue. The staff are rude and disinterested. The museum is spread out over 2 levels, and there are quite good displays with large water wheels, and a gypsy cottage. It's a little repetitive,... More

I love folklore. So if I want to have the sense, taste and smell of 'AT HOME', I use to visit both, the museum and traditional fairs, markets organized by the museum. The museum gathering a huge collection of traditional objects, has modern and elegant conceptual structure. I especially like 'windows', 'House in house', 'school'' and 'The cross - tree... More

Interesting museum inside a nice building, worth a relaxing visit. The tickets are rather cheap (< 2 Euro for adults), only the rights to take pictures are illogically high (about 15 Euro). Not at all advertised is a small market in the inner courtyard where it is possible to find interesting local articles.

I enjoyed aimlessly walking around asking myself what the heck most of this was. In one of the rooms I was told I had to pay to take a picture. Later I found out that you have to pay a photo tax of some sort. In another room one of the staff members told us all about a few displays... More

I found this museum quite interesting. I didn't really know what to expect, but I'm really glad I went. It shows the arts and crafts of the people living in rural Romania. The fabrics for clothing and carpets were intricate and shows a pride in their cultural heritage. Definitely recommend!

Very enjoyable museum, however there was a distinct lack of English language signage so had to guess what some of the exhibits were.
