  • It's a great museum. The houses are amazing and well preserved, the place is huge. I spent an extremely relaxing day. There are several terraces where meals can be served. It is a lake with swans. Visiting this museum you understand that the peasant technique was not at all rudimentary, but used all the resources at hand. What I would have liked in this wonderful place would be an electric train, tricycles to cover long distances, clearer markings, explanations on all the doors of the houses (many are missing) and, why not, the possibility to stay overnight in one of the museum's cottages. Anyway, it was a wonderful experience.
  • What a wonderful museum! We spent a good part of today wandering around and I'd like to go back later in the week. And it's really great for the kids as well: there's a house with a lot of toys that is arranged in a fascinating manner, there are also activities (mine were busy building with blocks for a very long time), and there are miniature water-mill houses that start working once water is let through. And it's even a lovely place to just go for a walk.
  • Amazing location to dive into historic Romania and how the people used to live. Location is perfect for an afternoon walk and see how older generations used to live. I detracted 1 star as there's no info about the houses and what they represent. A little of history and explanation is needed to fully comprehend what you're looking at. There's no English version, so if you don't know Romanian you won't understand anything. There need to be more investment in making the experience more interactive and interesting for both young and adult People.
  • Huge place where you will get to see a lot of old traditional houses. The place is very clean and you’ll even find some places to buy a drink or something to eat. If you were raised in the countryside, you’ll definitely recognize some of the houses, or the insides of the houses. Have your walking shoes with you, as you’ll do a lot of walking The entry fee for an adult was 35 lei. I don’t think we got to explore the whole place as it’s very big
  • Great experience if you want to to get a taste of old villages architecture /history. This is quite a big park with a lot of houses for different area of Romania. The wind mills are a must see. Also they have a really nice souvenir shop with some very rare items.
