easy accessible (right next to victoriei square and very close to the geology museum and to the antipa natural science museum - this last one is closed for the whole year, going through reconfiguration/modernisation), the peasant museum is indeed very very nice. starting with the (anti)communist collection located in the basement (which brought me soooo many childhood/school memories and sadeness in the same time...) and continuing with all the peasant art (represented by painted icons, clothing, ceramic/iron works, religious objects, painted eggs, the old school-bench area etc etc ) the museum stands out as one of the best of bucharest. the iron/woodwork shops look great, just as the remnants of the wooden church and the reconstructions of the peasant house from Gorj (you can climb the stairs next to it and look at the attic), the water and wind mills...
nevertheless, i believe that foreign tourists won't be able to fully get the spirit/meaning of lots of the objects/rooms, simply because there's no translation of the writings on the objects/walls (in the vast majority of cases that would have been impossible anyway). there are translations of what the objects themselves represent, but i'm afraid that in many cases this is not enough to catch the spirit of them all (the presentation itself is pretty funny as well in certain cases). still, the collections are extraordinary.
the entrance fee is 1.5 euros. if you wanna take pictures, that'll cost you almost ten times more (approx 12 euros).
