  • We had a good time there but everything was entrance forbidden so you can't really see the interior of the houses, which is a pitty. Also, there weren't any explanations about anything, nor how the houses or mills were built or used. Really recommendable but it could be better.
  • Very nice museum. Great concept, nice location. Very well organized.
  • Really good place to get a view on Romanias history. Lots of historical houses and water driven old machinery. Definitively worth a visit!
  • Nice pics, awesome old houses and good food!
  • Great place where you can see the houses of former Romania all its edges. The park is almost 1,000 acres and takes several hours until the roundabout.
