Romania life, work, and rural architecture on display. The craftsmanship is proudly shown. Some machines will ever linger in our memory as we saw the woolen rug fluffing apparatus.

I LOOOOVE this place. It's a piece of rural history in the middle of Bucharest. It reminds me of when i was a little girl running around my nana's yard barefoot. You can smell the ground and it smells like home. LOVE it!

It was interesting, the best exhibits being the furnished ones. In other similar museums I've been to there have been people in national costume in the houses to talk to the visitors and... More

No toilet paper, no soap recipients (the soap was put into a water bottle), the doors could not be closed, dirty all over the place. I spoke... More

Lot of ancient houses, interesting architectural buildings. I love the way they are localised and they inspire me about history...

This was a lovely place to wander around to see what some traditional Romanian houses looked like in different times. It is not terribly exciting and very few of the houses can actually be entered, but if you have a few free hours to spare it is a pleasant walk.
