The idea of establishing this open air museum was brilliant because it allows to see and understand the history of more then 200 of heritage homes and other kinds buildings(churches,windmills,etc.) from different parts of Romania.Having said that, visiting this museum in winter times is not recommended because almost all of them were closed and the only things that we was...

Brilliant place. The village was covered in about 1ft of snow and unfortunately the houses were closed but are open in the summer which will be amazing. We could look through the windows and by most there were information boards which explained where they had come from and when. Some of the houses dated back to the 1700s, had been... More

A good insight into the living conditions of various periods of Romanian history, windmills, houses, churches .. everything is there. Probably even better outside of winter when the houses are actually open to visit.

It’s very interesting to visit the different homes which were brought to this place from many places in Romania. They have brought a very old church made of wood - impressive!!! Different styles to visit. In some you can enter inside. Perfect for anytime of the year

This is a nice way to see the history of architecture of this country but we were really disappointed to see padlocks on all the doors of each building. So there was no way to see what these homes and buildings looked like inside. We stayed maybe a half hour and then left.

I take all my foreign friends here, You enjoy a lovely walk between traditional houses. Some are opened and you see the furniture, some you can just see from the outside. The weather matters a lot to be honest ... this is perfect for sunny days and on Saturdays there is always at least a bride . You can get... More

A nice and a right place to see, in few hours, authentic pieces of Romanian tradition. All old houses are in a perfect state.
