  • Really nice place for visit! Recommend for families. Large domain for visiting - approx 3 hours long. Good restaurants within the place. Various types of old houses from all regions of the country.
  • I think this one of the most beautiful open air museums what I have ever visited. Place is very beautiful for walk, you can see how was live in the past. I was there in March and all houses aren’t open just from April place coming more to live, I heard best is during summer. I really recommend to everyone.
  • A beautiful outdoor exhibit that's well worth the short trip out of Sibiu. The main building is well serviced and clean, and there are a few other restaurants inside the grounds. It's a lovely place to walk around on a nice day.
  • Great place to enjoy a relaxed walk and admire the decor. The place is pet friendly, so you cand bring your dog. Also you can ride your bike here, but check out their opening hours.
  • Beautiful place in which you can see authentic houses from the old times, Romanian, from all over the country, each region is represented. It's a lovely way to spend a day just walking and gazing at the structures. Will go again.
