Hello Community, worth a visit. Unfortunately quite far away from the city centre, but easy access by metro. Very cheap and suitable for old and young. There is a Restaurant inside and kids can play on the playground next to the village after the visit. Be careful with the cats.

The place itself is really interesting and really big. We really enjoyed it even thought it was really cold outside. I don't understand why but couldn't get inside, every house was closed. It think it is better to have a guide but 300 RON for foreign language speaking guide is quite a high price.

This was our first visit to Romania. The Village Museum is an perfect place to learn so of the history of the country. We spent about three hours touring the grounds. Since our visit was in October, there were few visitors. Locals were on the property selling crafts. Overall, it was a pleasant and relaxing way to spend a half-day.

My husband and i wanted a relaxing sightseeing with our new baby girl ... it was such a battery charger and a sight for sour eyes that national treasures are so well preserved there!

Very nice place! The houses were the traditional and original ones from the villages in Romania. Even with the heavy snow the city had those days it was a unique experience!

The Village Museum is an open-air ethnographic museum located in the Herăstrău Park, showcasing traditional Romanian village life.The museum has a great souvenir shop, and a stall selling traditional Romanian sweets and cakes. It even has a restaurant, La Francu, set in an original 19th-century inn. Children love the museum, and it makes for a perfect family outing.

You will find it amazing and a tour though old Romania, it will take a whole day to visit the entire place. A bit of high entrance fee.

definitely one of the most beautiful attractions of the capital Interesting concept that you do not see too often.. Lots of old houses from all around Romania , the architecture is amazing , you can even see inside . Maybe one of the disadvantage is that you cannot see it when it is raining.. so watch the weather before visiting
