Great museum, fascinating exhibits, a real taste of Romania through the years. Staff could be given lessons in smiling though, sheesh.
A great place to visit AFTER you visited the Village Museum, here you find the details of the old rural life, comprehensive papers at every exhibition hall in many languages, large and well explained wood and glass icons collection, carpets collection, other symbols explained, wooden machines... and a GREAT coffee bar BEHIND the museum! hudge salads, hot vine, local dishes,...

A really interesting 3 floors of Romanian history. The building itself is huge, allowing a whole house to be built in 1 room! It was a nostalgic look at history with some flowery emotive language in some of the descriptions but I feel it just added to the charm of the place. A must see, and a bargain at 8... More
I was expecting a bit more variety as most on display were traditional Romanian costumes and some pottery. There was a large farm contraption made out of wood but there was nothing to explain what it actually was! Also there is an old classroom rebuilt into one of the rooms. OK for an hour but no more. Head for the... More
The building itself is outstanding. The array of native clothes, even a peasant hut & other items on display show a great deal of care on someone´s part, Well worth the effort to go there.
Don't expect a museum as you know it. This is different. We took the audioguided tour, and this explaines a lot. The museum is more to get you in the mood for understanding the peasant lifestyle. Fair enough, but the texts on the audio were a bit too cloudy for me. The displays were done nice, apart from the communist... More
A great museum if you are interested in the traditional heritage of Romania. If you are lucky to be there on a weekend day, chances are you might come across one of the fairs that are organised in the courtyard of the museum quite often (traditional food and products, small artifacts, anything you can think of). The museum also hosts... More
The museum gives interesting insight on the peasant life. We found the English written explanations lacking. We did not take the audio tour (12 Lei) - maybe we should have. The entrance fee is very low (full price is 8 Lei, and with the Bucharest city card we got for free on the free walking tour it was 2 Lei).... More
A unique museum offering an insight into the Peasant culture of Romania. What was shocking (and this was quite common throughout Romania) was that the fee to use a camera in the museum was the same as the entrance fee. Makes no sense. The museum is set across three floors, and all exhibits are well laid out with clear signage.
