The Village Museum is an open-air ethnographic museum located in the Herăstrău Park, showcasing traditional Romanian village life.The museum has a great souvenir shop, and a stall selling traditional Romanian sweets and cakes. It even has a restaurant, La Francu, set in an original 19th-century inn. Children love the museum, and it makes for a perfect family outing.

You will find it amazing and a tour though old Romania, it will take a whole day to visit the entire place. A bit of high entrance fee.

The place seems amazing and was one of I was most curious to see but unfortunately the day when it was open was really snowy and I couldn't see much things... :(

definitely one of the most beautiful attractions of the capital Interesting concept that you do not see too often.. Lots of old houses from all around Romania , the architecture is amazing , you can even see inside . Maybe one of the disadvantage is that you cannot see it when it is raining.. so watch the weather before visiting

The village museum must be seen, because it is a part of our history here. The houses are really nice, it is a quiet place where you can relax on the grass.

This was an interesting educational outdoor museum that I enjoyed, despite the chilly weather. The gift shop was my favorite part! So many gifts...it was difficult to decide which items to buy...I wanted them all!

Went in late December and were disappointed to find all houses closed, so could just see the exteriors. It was still worth the visit but would have been much better in spring/summer. I believe houses closed in winter as a safeguard against extreme weather.
