Museum of the Romanian Peasant, Bucharest
Categories: Art Museums, History Museums, Museums
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.

Sad to say that we were so convinced by the travel guides that we didn't check ahead or look at TripAdvisor. Our mistake! Really disappointed as it sounded fab. We did manage a nose around the shop. T... read more »
one of the biggest museums in romania and they decide to repair all together in the middle of the season and with no note; you just find it out when you are in front of the building. sad. sad. sad. Fo... read more »
However- even though closed the small side exhibition, fantastic shop with wonderful ceramics and welcoming restaurant with tastey food made up for it.
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.
For a museum that attracts more people with its terrace and holiday markets rather than with its collection and expo, you know something is not right. I've been here hundreds of times but never actually visited the museum. It always a movie screening inside the courtyard, a club party inside the restaurant or some vintage fair on the terrace. They need to start marketing and promoting the actual museum better, beer and cold plates won't cut it forever...
We didn't enter the museum itself, but the small flee market in the backyard of that museum was very colorful and interesting (it was on Saturday). It's worth to come to the museum at least in order to go to the market (for free).
One of the few MUST GO places in Bucharest. A huge collection of traditional houses moved from all the parts of the country and kept in good shape. This might be the best place to visit in Bucharest. I still need to visit the National arena to make sure.
Very important museum. Very useful to understand the history of Rumania.
