  • Romania is also aggregated with the original state of the village houses, surrounded by nature. Contains a selection to a place you need to see when your way

  • Walk in rural Romania, get acquainted with different areas, see a significant difference in the life of the villagers of regions-quite interesting. Of course, compared to life in our village, something to take note of this.

  • Nice place. Sessions where different types of housing throughout the ages in Romania. Very similar to these places we have seen in Ireland and Norway, and more. Walk lightly sweet views along the river. There is a small restaurant and souvenir shop. Worth two to three hours.

  • Interesting, like a park Been here several times for a walk or for university drawing projects while student. The place is calm and with some very beautiful old traditional houses but, in the same time it is an old, classic museum. There is no much life inside and some houses are dusty and look abandoned. Overall the place is nice to have a weekend long walk or to vary children activities.
  • Village Museum is one of the coolest locations in Bucharest. A nice place where you might learn something about Romania, especially if you are the prime minister of an advanced, civilized country (let's say, for instance, Japan) and you make an official visit to Romania with the hope of discussing some serious issues but you find out (in the last moment) that the Romanian government ceased to exist.
  • There wasnt much to do yet it was a very nice place to walk around. Make sure to watch your step as the paths are a bit damaged at places. Tall people will struggle to go inside some of the old houses. Bring carrots for the animals, they are cute and friendly. Fun for little kids maybe.
  • Nice for an outside walk discovering the different houses and some old technologies but it would have been even better if we could have enter in more buildings.
  • An amazing museum in the heart of Bucharest !! Over there, the visitor can observe the old time Romania and how natives many years before used to live !!! The place is majestic and with just a walk could see everything..The ticket price is 15 Lei so its a normal price and the guys there totally helpful to everyone !!!
