The Village Museum in Bucharest, Romania, is a must-see for anyone who wants to find out more about the traditional way of life in historic Romania. The exhibition currently running focuses on... more »
This place is incredible! You can spend the whole day in there. It is an open space museum with hundreds of exibiths from all over Romania. And those houses are a hit! You can learn everything about village life in the past few centuries, about building techniques, about different religions, about different parts of the country. It is one of the best museums that I have visited! And the price is a joke. 15 lei only.
In the Winter this museum park is good for about a 1 hour stroll. Each individual cottage had an information board in Romanian and English (with funny translations). Sadly, all the cottages were padlocked shut. My 9 year old found the many cats roaming the park more interesting than the buildings, so I'm glad they're there. The cafe didn't look very inviting.
A must-go place in Bucharest. Imagine yourself walking in a village of XVII! That’s all what you need, just your imagination and creativity. You can climb to the terraces and see the old time furniture from windows. It’s a pity that all the houses are closed and you cannot walk inside :/ Prefer visiting during the summer time because we had a big struggle due to the raining weather.
Unique place to grasp history of Romanian ancestors, their traditions, architecture and way of life. You find houses, wind mills, churches and many other buildings transported here from different regions of the entire Romania. Location by the river gives the place even more exceptional atmosphere.
Amazing place to see. Really nice place to wander for a couple of hours. Toilets on site. Pathways and activities. Very enjoyable and enlightening experience. The entry price was fair. There a shops around to by souvenirs and cafes to get food and drink.
