If you want to visit Rumania in a few hours this is the place to go.
There are houses and mills, grinding stones and churches from all over Rumania and reaching back several centuries,
You will need several hours to visit the village and adjoining park and lake.
Take your time and be prepared for a beautiful relaxing walk through the village. All house are explained in signs outside (in English) and in many cases it is possible to enter also.

We have visited villages like this one all over the world. This one was located very close to the main downtown area. The buildings are very interesting but in the other villages we visited there were people plying their crafts and daily living activites--none here. There were people selling handcrafts but that was it. It would have been nice to see how they lived and not just the type of dwellings they lived in.

This is a quite atpical museum as it's more an ethnological short travel to traditional Romania. You will have the chance to see typical houses with specific pieces of furniture - it's like you can have a taste of what is really beautiful and genuinly Romanian concentrated here. The location is very convenient so if you want to getaway from noisy and crowded Bucharest, this is a very inspired option.

Spending an afternoon strolling around the 100.000 m2, relaxing on park benches, enjoying the atmosphere of different styles of houses,barns, sheds, wind mills and wooden churches: Far away from the noise of the trafic of the Kiseleff boulevard. It's possible to take the hop on and off bus, but, for 1€ it's cheaper to take a taxi to the Museum. To come back, the nearest taxi station is at the Triumph Arch. For me the number one of the attractions of Bucharest.

An extensive collection of ancient wooden buildings from across Romania, few of which were open on the day we visited but this apparently depends on the day of the week. There are centuries old farmhouses, barns, churches, mills and so on, all arranged around and above a lake: and it is extensive enough to make the cafe and its ice creams a welcome find.
