It's always a pleasure to visit the Astra National Museum Complex. You can easily get lost in the Village Museum for a whole day. I don't even know where to begin my review. Step inside the museum and go towards the lake. I always take a right turn and start my visit. Each time I discover something new, unique. Walk... More

It is quite a huge place, located just outside Sibiu City, it is recommended that you take your personal/rental car so you can enjoy other smaller towns and villages around Sibiu. The Museum looks more like a theme park that takes you through centuries of Romanian rural tradition with model houses to reflect each period and province. you can enjoy... More

It's a perfect walk through the nature and history, it's larger than the one in Bucharest even though i prefer the second one, Astra it's that kind of place you don't want to miss!

After traveling through Rumania in the last 2 weeks we recognized a lot of what we had seen in the rural areas. Even though not all places were accessible there was certainly enough to experience and look at. The location is perfect and offers wonderful backdrops for many of the buildings. The display of farming, household and craftsmen tools and... More

Nice to stroll around outdoors and look at all of the mills and buildings. All of the buildings were closed because it was the middle of the week...in the summer. I am not sure if the buildings are ever open, based on the signs at the entrance and the complaints from other travelers. So I would rate it lower than... More

I cannot believe how amazing this place is. I'm not sure if it's normal for Europeans to have open air museums.... but this is certainly something I had never heard of. We stayed on the grounds in the Diana Hostel and had an absolute incredible time! I would love to come back again. So green, so sustainable, so beautiful!

If you want to spend real quality time in Sibiu do not miss Astra National Museum Complex. You can have a great experience in open space full of romanian tradition. Sibiu center is nice but Astra is great

A short taxi ride from the centre of town, I think we paid about 20 lei with a tip. It is a really scenic place to wander round exploring different buildings from around Romania. There is plenty of information on different buildings should you want to stop and read and they have made use of QR codes so you might... More

If you find yourself in Sibiu and you feel like taking a walk, a long walk outside the city (but very close to it), somewhere you can also eat and learn something more about Romania, go straight to Astra National Musem. You'll see many things that no longer exist or things you never thought existed - used by peasants in... More
