This is an interesting outdoor museum or exhibit of the type of housing romanians lived in the rural areas of the country. There are many types of houses with some even partially below ground level.

A very big area is dedicated to this open museum. It would be interesting if there had been some sort of guidness. There are a few houses with explenations in front of them, but in general the feeling is like wondering about without direction.

Very nice work and idea for an open laographic museum of this vast size but it was lacking of administration (like many Bucharest's sites). The entrance fee is not expensive but they could use some tours even with some extra money. We wandered around about two hours, found it very interesting but we wanted to learn more about the buildings... More
