The collection of historical buildings at the Village Museum in Bucharest range from tall wooden churches to tiny peasant cottages and small windmills. Aside from the examples of Romanian architecture, there are sometimes musical performances of folk music and dancing. A special added feature are the many vendors of embroidery and other crafts. But best are the food vendors --... More

This museum was a wonderful collection of houses brought from all over the country to preserve them. We spent several hours and still didn't all the houses. Our guide knew a lot about them but each building has a written description. Each building was different and representing a different area of Romania. There were crafters outside some of the buildings... More

Me as a Bucharest inhabitant I really love to take walks in the museum that is in fact a park with beautiful old village houses near the lake. The atmosphere many times is enriched by folklore festivals with music, traditional hand made objects and food.

An amazing park to which old cottages and houses from all over the country have been transported and re-erected. Very impressive architecture and always nice walking in a park.

Great idea to put all the different original house styles in one location. Layout is a tad confusing and can easily miss some, not very buggy friendly at times. My suggestion would have been to have them laid out in chronological order so you can see them progress as you walk along.

I came to the Village Museum on Monday September 19th at 11am, only to find that it was closed. The entrance gate was chained shut and the ticket booth was closed. I verified the opening times before I came. It was raining, so I guessed they closed because they thought nobody would come. Then I took a walk through Herustrau... More

Interesting history and architecture of varied locations in Romania. Local craftspeople sell some of their wares: beautifully decorated pottery, carved wood, fibers. The restaurants on site are very nice.

The museum is built from old, original village houses brought from all parts of Romania. It is beautiful and very interesting . On our weeken visit there was also a handicraft market with original handmade things to make this visit even more unique.
