The structures are only open when weather is very clear and dry, to protect the structures from moisture. It is a nice and interesting place to stroll and peek into old houses and mills, to consider the way people lived in the past. There are many cats in Bucharest, but most evident at the Village Museum. I saw women come... More

If you are in Bucharest do not miss the Village Museum. It will take you about 2-3 hours to visit and you will not regret. All the houses are genuine and they have been taken from their original sites all over Romania and brought here. The museum is located on a lake shore in the middele of a big park... More

This museum is very special and iconic for the Romanian culture. The buildings are authentic and very well maintained. It takes at least 2 hours to visit the entire area, there is a restaurant inside if you are tired and want to drink/eat something. There is always a show for the kids or adults inside with the theme: Romanian culture.

Great place, nice to walk inside the gardens! When we were there, it was a "Festival de Folclor" (traditional Romanian music and arts), with a lot of artisans and nice stuff to bring home. We spent more than 2 hours inside the Muzeul Satului! Go there if you want to taste a bite from the authentic Romania...

I don't think that this is as big as the museum in Sibiu that has similar buildings but it is a lot more compact and there are less windmills. A wonderful mix of different buildings from around the country (including a road surveyors house!). A great place to wander around after you've been in Herastrau Park - best time is... More

If you are going to the park / lake or even Hard Rock Cafe nearby, take an hour of your time and $10 of the local currency to take a walk through the Village Museum. It is an interesting collection of historic ethnic buildings and a nice place to visit for a shirt period of time.

One of the most interesting attraction in Bucharest. It's located in the park and it's nice to escape there from the hot and stinky old town in the summer. The museum consists of many different houses, churches, mills and other characteristic places of natural size which were brought to the museum directly from Romanian villages. The buildings come from many... More

The Village Museum it's the perfect place for a relaxing sunday, with family and friends. It's a good way to understand a little bit of the life in the country, in funny and happy way. You can taste some good traditional products here, or you can buy traditional "ie"

We went to visit the museum and we're great! Old houses, old churches, fresh air. We had a nice time even the weather was raining.

Interesting open air museum where buildings of historic interest have been moved to from all over Romania. Well worth a visit. Near a lake good for walking and relaxing.
