It is such a splendid exhibition with the diverse display of traditional costume, household facilities, and other cultural items from many centuries ago till now. It spreads over a spacious area, with lake, hills,..Very beautiful natural setting. Highly recommended this place for those who love... More

This place is enormous! We weren't sure if it was closed on the day we visited (ie. just open to walk around the gardens, but not to go inside anywhere - no one said anything) but every hut, shed, house, windmill etc was closed so you couldn't actually look inside any of the (probably hundreds) of buildings. And we really... More

A must see, if in Sibiu! Choose a nice sunny day for walking and leave the rest to the soroundings in the middle of nature. Delight your eyes with some of the romanian best heritage exponates carefully rebuilted to reflect their authencity. Better than any other National Museum in Romania! If tripadvisor had have more than excellent option for reviews:... More

We visited the Astra Complex in late October 2014 when all of the houses, exhibits were closed. Also, the day was overcast and rainy. However, even with these conditions, we found this a fascinating place to visit and very worthwhile the time spent, even without seeing the interiors of the houses. It is amazing to think that these houses were... More

You need at least one full day to visit the museum that is a large beautiful park with traditional houses from all over Romania. Visit it in summer when the houses are open for interior visit and buy a guide to find out interesting details. If hungry there is a restaurant inside the museum.

I belive that Astra MUseum is nicer then Muzeul Satului from Bucharest.The museum is very big, and it's a great way to spend some outdoor time. It has a lake with boats and bikes that you can rent. Great staff, beautiful surrounding and good food.

If you're near this place and the weather is nice, grab a ticket and spend the whole day exploring this amazing museum and its beautiful surrounding, and talk to the nice staff that's always willing to share a story or two about what they're doing there. The museum is enormous and simply beautiful, strongly recommended to families with children. It's... More
