Located in the beautiful Herastrau Parc, the Village Museum offers a real educational day out. Lots of traditional houses to see

That’s a nice way to see the Architecture of living at the historicity time, when They had to live and growing their families in tough conditions, the area is very clean, in good condition, the staff is friendly, a specialty is recommended the restaurant, it’s connected to Herästräu Park, don’t forget to keep the ticket with you, and then its free, worth the visit.

I know a lot of people are aware of this place but I was very impressed. I knew a lot about the exhibits and the set up but going there was another thing. Although it's in a very popular area I consider it a hidden gem as the majority of people overlook it considering it just another part of Herastrau Park. And it definitely isn't. I was impressed from the first minute. The ticket seller and the security personnel were very friendly and welcoming. After I walked in with a map in hand, I went about the place in my own pace. It was very hot outside so the shade of the trees and the houses was a blessing. The museum covers houses from different regions in Romania and each and one of them comes with some information about the area, style of the house, the socio-economic situation of the families living in the houses at that time as well as the traditions and customs. It's a lovely insight into Romania during 18-19th century. There's something to see for everyone. There are little pop up shops of handmade gifts, there are craft stalls in which visitors can learn how to knit, carve wood or paint. You can view the inside of almost every house, you can take photos, you can relax on some of the benches and you can even have lunch at the inn in the middle of the museum, where they serve traditional Romanian food. This museum is for everyone, of any ages. They have multi-lingual written guides and they offer tours if I'm not mistaken. Would recommend and would come back in a heartbeat.

A walking tour on a very pretty park showing the different houses and structures on Romanian history for the last 400 years . Structures were rebuilt from their original state thus are originals. Very interesting and learning experience.

Four of us stopped here as part of a TravelMaker guided tour. This is a wonderful outdoor museum featuring unique old buildings from the three principal Romanian territories. Most are old houses, carefully disassembled, transported to this museum, then reassembled in realistic settings. It was fascinating to see the various architectural styles. Unique is an old wooden-shingled church, which seems to dominate the property. The museum is in a beautiful, peaceful park setting around a lake. Walking paths take you from point-to-point. Signs are in Romanian and English, which was greatly appreciated. Refreshments are available. Highly recommended!
