Authentic museum with real items transported all over the romanian lands. A marvel that is a must see if you came to Romania. Or, you can see all this travelling from Tisa river to Nistru river and Danube!

We visited this afternoon and it’s definitely a very neat outdoor living history museum. I do recommend it. There were maybe 4 houses open to look into when we visited. The rest were closed. It’s a very big place and very interesting! Highly recommend.
