Lovely Sunday in the nature
Feb 2021 • Friends
I went there on Sunday and we spent at least three hours walking into the nature watching all the romanian houses and construction that are kept in this museum. At the entrance you can get a free map of the museum, I found it very helpful because of the huge dimension of the park. Gardens are provided of games spots for kids, guaranteeing a time of peace for parents that brings their children. There are also spots selling food and beverage, the path is very long and a break is needed. The only problem we had was with the QR codes of the houses that were not working. They should fix this problem so people can better understand what they're looking at.
In some houses you can also see ancient objects and some others have animals (we met sheep, donkey, goose, cats and dogs). It is possible to go inside by bike and enjoy the ride with your friends/family.
If you go to Sibiu you cannot miss this place

A cool place to visit if you're interested how Romanians used to live and work around the house. U can see tools they've used in different works they had around the house . Different methods and design of house building. There's a traditional souvenir shop aswell .

It has 10 kms of alleys to walk on! Amazing views, such an unusual park for Romania. The houses are very well preserved. Constant work is being done on it. Cozy places to have lunch or coffee at. Lovely experience! Can spend a whole day there easily!

One of the biggest open air museums of ethnography in Europe, Astra Museum displays traditional houses, households and churches from different areas in Romania. Located in a forest near the city, the museum offers visitors a great experience: it is interesting to see where and how people used to live centuries ago.

Not much to do with young children
Sep 2020 • Family
I visited this museum with my wife and thee year old daughter. I thought the entrance ticket was a bit pricey at 25 lei per adult, so I had high expectations. Unfortunately, apart from the view of the windmills, which is exceptional, there wasn't not much to do for my daughter, so she got bored. Furthermore there were quite a few exhibits where I was able to glance beautiful pottery inside the house, but was unable to view then upclose because most houses are locked. Which is ironic given that this is by definition an old houses/village museum.

Given such a high price for the entrance ticket, I would not recommend going out of your way to visit this place.
