“Great for some fresh air and a good walk”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

This place is very attractive and certainly good for a reasonably long walk all around it. It's probably better in the Summer months however, as most of the houses were locked up. Also, despite being open each day, the cafe/ restaurant was closed.

“To see”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

The Astra Museum is a good choice to spend a nice afternoon when you're in Sibiu. It's not that far from the city and apart of the village museum, there is also a zoo and a lake where you can take a ride in a boat.

“Step back in time”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

When I first visited the Astra Village Museum was like I step back in time. All the houses and the contraptions that they have there are in such a good conditions with all the details kept in place. It felt like I was there in those times and I was expecting the peasants to come out of the houses like they lived there.
The day I visited it was a fair also with all handcrafted things, traditional suits, delicious sweets. It is a pleasure to visit this place also because it is so vast. Nobody will feel sorry that it came to see it, it's worth it.

“Excellent day trip.”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

I took a bus from the train station and within twenty minutes I was there. It is spread out over quite a large area. I went on a Sunday and there was actually a service going on in the old church. Everything has been restored and rebuilt here to a good standard and most things are explained in English. I went on a warm, sunny day and the walk alone through the woods was great. I liked the windmills and watermills the best. It is a pity they cannot get them up and working again. The restaurant is a bit overpriced but in nice surroundings. I think the Bucharest version is better as all the old buildings are in a smaller area making it look like an actual village. Well worth a visit and if the sun is shining you can sit overlooking the lake.
