Great way to spend a couple of hours. Information provided in English about the age and origin of the houses. Not crowded and very pleasantly laid out although maps would have been useful round the place. Some very interesting buildings- half buried houses, windmills and small estates. Great!

It is a great place to walk and spend half a day, especially if you like tradition and old constructions. For kids it is a great place to play and feel like on countryside.

It is basically an area with a bunch of houses built in the traditional style from different areas around Romania. I enjoyed walking around and getting a historical glimpse into Romania. Also, I am a recent college graduate, and this museum is very cheap with the student discount.

The village museum is a collection of genuine old buildings which have been transported to the site from all over Romania. There are many different types of houses but also churches and an interesting collection of water powered machines, not just for grinding wheat but for everything from making felt to crushing gold bearing rock.

Simply great! The houses are made with cure, realisticly representing inside and outside life, in the middle of the green, along a lake. Two hours spent very joyfully!

This open air museum provides examples of the houses and other buildings from villages around Romania from the mid 19th century. It was a nice way to spend the afternoon. Many of the buildings could just be seen from the outside or peeking through windows. Lots of handmade crafts were available for sale from the artists who created them. Admission... More

As a native Romanian, I did not expect this museum to surprise me in any way, yet it did. Traditional houses here are built to the smallest detail, some of them are hard to see in a village today. It is a outdoor lesson of history and architecture.

If you whant to discover how the villagers used to live, how rich was their life in Romania, then this is a place to visit. Houses form all over Romania since the XV-th century, richly decorated, beautiful wooden churches, traditional Easter hand painted eggs. If uou have an hour or two go and visit The Village Museum!
