We were eight delegates plodding about the village museum, when we met Peter, since none of us knew Romanian, Mr. Peter explained very elegantly and replied patiently to our numerous questions.

The museum presents a collection of more than 60 historic rural buildings from across Romania and of different eras, all carefully reassembled in 15 hectares of parkland on the shore of Lake Herastrau. The village is well laid out in a pretty garden setting and easy to walk around. Some of the houses are open to view and in one... More

This is a very good example of outdoor museum. You can both enjoy the good weather in the forest of herastrau park and also see the historical development of Romanian folk culture. Recommended for everyone interested in culture and history.

Being able to see a small village in the heart of a city is something a bit surreal. I always enjoy going there, especially since I grew up at the country side. Gives you that rural peace, great as an escape place when you want to relax, stroll in the past for a little bit

Travelled to the village museum after a recommendation from a friend. The village was well laid out and the route easy to follow. The buildings and the representation of life and their usage was good. The church had a wedding event and the priest invited us to join the celebration. A very pleasant way to spend the afternoon

We visited today and were not disappointed. The museum is much larger than I thought and very well maintained. In addition there is a very nice caffè in the middle of it. Would strongly recommend.

We came here as part of our tour group. Unfortunately raining but was still enjoyable. Need to purchase map of facility in the gift shop. We did not and still managed. Most of houses were closed a few had chains across that you could look in and see how the people lived. There are signs in front of most places... More

I really expected more. I expected diverse old buildings from around Romania. Instead, I found half of the houses locked, and the other half from a similar period, yes old, but the few that were furnished, the Spartan furniture was the same in all of the buildings. Disappointed.

Here you can find houses from all over the country and you can learn about them. Still is a good idea to visit the museum during the week, and not in the weekend when is visited by a lot of tourists.

This place has many small model homes which were being used in different regions of remote Romania. It is a nice stroll and looks something out of the movie. If you have time then a visit is recommended.
