We´ve been there as a part of our exchange visit and everything was perfect. It is a great area full of interesting old buildings. All you need is to be careful about the weather and plan in advance. :-)

A very large area with lots of different types of reconstructed old Romanian houses - it feels like travelling back to time. We visited it in the winter and the indoors were closed, but it was still a great experience.

This museum is a great surprise and we didn't expect to see such a variety of houses. It includes many traditional houses from different parts of Romania and it also has the interior of the house. Very nice to visit. Great in terms of any other world air open museum.

Astra museum is an excellent place to wander around and see the old style of homes and how people were living sustainably. It features houses and workshops of the traditional Romanian folk culture from the pre-industrial era. Over 300 houses and other buildings are situated in the forest around two artificial lakes with over 10 km of walkways between them.... More

I have seen lot of details mentioned by others, so I will focus only on what might help to be prepared for a visit there: - if any risk of rains, be prepared for (it is a walk in a large park, so limited places to be used as shelters) - if you have small childrens, better don't. It is... 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
