  • On a cold and dreary day, we ventured out to visit this museum. The houses were interesting to see, panel descriptions well done externally. Unfortunately none of the houses were open inside this...

  • We enjoyed our walk, but was disappointed the cafe was closed. However we got to meet the charming cat people who manage the strays by feeding and rehoming the many cats in this park.

  • Very beautiful. You can tour through all the old houses and you can realize from the way and the houses they lived, how they thought of Life. You can also understand how short people they were, by the very small doors and short beds and chairs. They were simple. Only the necessary, next to a beautiful river. Great view.
  • We went there on Thursday an hour before it closed. There was free parking space right in front of the entrance. We used a student discount so a ticket was 8 lei. The houses inside are great, a lot of info to read and see. You can spend 1-2hours easily. We spent an hour inside but managed to see only half of it before we were asked to head to the exit since it was almost closing time. The staff was friendly and the ticket lady knew a bit of English so the service was nice. Cheap for such a great museum. Bear in mind that you need to go in sunny weather since it’s all outside.
  • Great experience! Lovely to visit traditional style buildings from different parts of the country and to learn a bit about the history. Nice place to go on a hot day as the museum is located in the shade of Herastrau park. Make sure that you go right from the entry of the museum as many people like myself tend to go left and miss an entire village on the right. Some of the buildings doors were locked. We'd wish they were open to visit them inside as they were decorated . Do not recommend the restaurant inside as a bottle of water costs 3 times the normal price. 😉
  • On a beautiful spring day or a mild summer day, the village museum must be visited ... Whether you are from Bucharest or just passing through, don't miss it! In addition to homes in all parts of the country, you may be lucky enough to find some traditional products. The children also seemed fascinated and delighted. I wholeheartedly recommend
  • It was very interesting to visit ,so much domestic architectural structures to see from all over Romania. When we visited were very lucky to be entertained by traditional dancers .They were fabulous. The whole area is very well kept and well maintained. Our only disappointment was going to the restaurant in the village museum park its self. One of dishes a portion of the meat was undercooked and when we brought it to the attention to the waitress she took it away . It wasnt replaced and then ignored till we asked to pay. Other than that I would recommend the park to anyone to visit.
