Museum of the Romanian Peasant, Bucharest

(3.4/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
Learn what life was like for peasants around the Romanian countryside during the last four centuries at Museum of the Romanian Peasant. Housed in a red-brick building, the museum exhibits traditional dress, furniture, hand-painted Easter eggs, icons, terracotta pottery, tools, and other items. If you want to find out more about the artifacts, you can take the information panels available in English and carry them with you. In a farmer's kitchen look for a door in one corner, behind which surprises await. The museum also features complete wooden buildings, a gift shop that sells replicas of some exhibits, and a small room in the basement dedicated to the communist era.

  • When I visit this place some construction work was going on. So, part of museum was open but part was close. However, there is a nice shop inside where people can buy hand made cloth etc  more »
  • I went alone and obviously beyond any agricultural implements (cha are noiosetti) reconstructions of houses are awesome!

  • The place to be for both hipsters with their MacBook Airs posting some latest story on their trending blogs and for people seeking a place to grab a good meal and then a great book to read in am all authentic Romanian setting. Highly recommended!
  • Good place to explore and too many things to see, kind of modern historic museum.
  • Best hang-out spot in the Piata Victoriei vicinity.
  • It was good to see the history. For a museum it was poorly set up. There were LOTS of employees who just sat there watching you not to damage anything or take photos. Photo tax was crazy high 60 lei. Some slept, some read a book. One lady was nice and told us info about three giant machines. Most just gave you a stink eye and followed you. It was also supremely cold!!! Great home there from 1875 and other artifacts.
  • The Romanian Tourist industry has not understood the needs of tourists. On the day that I got here there was a handwritten note stuck to the door with a a message in Romanian and the doors were locked. Very disappointing.
