This is an interesting outdoor ethnographic museum practically in the limits of Bucharest. It gives good impression of Rumanian village houses mainly from 19th century. Most of the houses are original – moved in the museum; especially interesting are the two small older wooden churches. The museum was interesting even for the two 5 years kids in our company.

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.
