Having been to similar open air museums in other countries we were looking forward to our visit to the Village Museum. It was interesting to walk around and see the buildings and to learn more about Romanian history, but it was a real shame that you couldn't go inside any of the houses (in many cases we struggled to see...

It was my fourth visit to the museum. It's an open air museum, with old houses that take you back in the Romanian history. If you are passionate about discovering unique rural homes, this is the place. You can have a look inside, admire the decorations and the simplicity of life back then. It's a great way of spending an... More

I personally loved it. Brings back memories from my childhood in the countryside. I reccomend it especially in summer, but anytime is great to visit it. It is quite big and diverse and it brings a home-like warm feeling.

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
