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.

  • This museum is probably most appreciated by natives because they would better understand it. However is very well organized, has great historic houses, and lots of charm and character. 
  • The museum itself is small, but in complex with a garden it is quite possible to devote 1.5 hours of time. Inside the jeskponatov a bit, main-"massive" type of mill. But interesting to see guns agricultural industry, so if there is time.

  • The Museum is closed for renovations from July! I regretted not being able to visit because it should be one of the largest in Romania! Too bad! The visiteró surely in the future when I return to Bucharest and I hope to put 5 bullets.

  • 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.
