Interesting stuff to see. Rural clothes and lifestyle, customs of romanian people from all over the country. Beautifull clothes with small details of the customs.

I found this museum to be exceptionally good, the exhibits demonstrated clothes, art, furnishings and photographs from Romania's past. Anyone who would like to spend 30 mins to an hour learning about what Romania's past was like for the average person would definitely enjoy stopping by here. The gift shop has a fantastic selection of traditional crafts at very reasonable... More

Small museum with themed exhibits. Interesting and educational. Interesting building and easy to get to. Best part is the museum store and restaurant - go out the back of the building and across the courtyard. ( no signs) The real folk art items and handicrafts are high quality and very reasonable prices. ( Best that I came across in Bucharest)

I lived for a period close to the Museum of National History and Archeology in Piata Ovidiu and after visiting it I thought that this "Muzeul de Arta Populara" was a minor one. In fact I have to admit that I was wrong, I found this one also very interesting and instructive. Thanks a lot.

Found the 5 lei price for an entrance fee bit would not have paid more. It's pretty basic. Thought there would be more folk art. Was mostly religious icon style paintings on glass. Sameness throughout. The costumes and national dress from the regions was interesting but again a lot of the sake stuff. Tiny exhibit. Could do it in 20... More

Entrance fee is 5 Lei around £0.85. Cheap yeah! Well this shows it pretty much everything. Anyone can barely speak English. It is such a BORING EXHIBITION. This building has 2 floors. At the first one you can see a lot of icons. At the second one you will see a lot of traditional Romanian clothes. I think that building... More

Nice little museum, quite deserted. Who we arrived they turned on the light as if they had no been expecting visitor. Interesting collection of mainly costumes. Photographs of typical habitats.

The place itself is very organized but the exhibition were really dull and not interesting. I definitely wouldn't recommend it for priority visit, could save it for later if you have the time, if you don't you are not missing anything.

What on earth this is billed as an art Museum for I fail to understand ! Downstairs is a load of stained glass pictures of Christ and then upstairs is just a load of cabinets filled with old clothes so not really sure what it's all about ! No pictures allowed but I took them on phone !
