“Very Informative!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

This is next door to the Grigore Antipa Natural museum, so the 2 are an excellent and informative day out.
The Peasant's museum is as the name says, about Romania from the peasants viewpoint!
I found the museum was full of information.
There is no guide book as such, but a book on sale at the check-in tells the whole story in Romana and English. It cost 60 lei, but was very worthwhile.
The museum had many halls of religious info, custom and traditions, buildings (yes, there is a church indoors!) costumes, crafts and heroes.
I found the museum wonderful, but it may not be to everybody's taste.
Overall, the information offered and seen was great!
There is a fee if you wish to take photos.

“It was OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

Don't expect too much, but I'm impressed with how hard they worked at making it all interesting. Worth the small entrance fee.

“A Truly Beautiful Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

This is a don't miss if you're at all interested in the history of Romania and it's peoples. Everything is beautifully displayed in a gorgeous renovated mansion and there is a very fine bar out back once you are done. I highly recommend a visit to both!

“Do Your Shopping Here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

The gift shop is not obvious at this site, but do find it. It offers the best and largest selection of Romanian souvenirs that we saw in Bucharest, at reasonable prices. Go through the museum towards the back, down the stairs, outside to the courtyard and the gift shop is located to the left. A coffee shop is adjacent. The museum itself is well worth visiting, with a respectable collection of costumes, household items, and many, many icons. Each room has a laminated card with a description of each item in the room translated into English. You can carry the card with you as you go through the room so you know more about what you are seeing. I enjoyed this museum as much or more than the Village Museum.
