Open air museum that is in the center of a big park.
The museum itself contains houses from different parts of Romania and different eras. It is quite incredible as a westerner to look at the houses that are only 100 years old, they are so incredibly different to what we are used to.
If you have a couple of hours then this is a good place to go. Very open, relaxing and interesting.
Toilets are clean and free and there are eating/drinking stops if desired.

I saw village museums in Romania before seeing this one, so I actually thought I will not be impressed. Bad mistake, as it totally blew me away. I recommend to take half a day to dedicate to strolling around. Keep an eye open for the lower parts, the ones closer to the water, parallel to the main road; lots of nice watermills and small houses are placed there. also, get some coffee or something to eat at the restaurant inside the museum, located next to the middle entrance (not the big one, where you go in through the house, which also contains the shop of the museum) - prices are quite low, food is typical Romanian one and quite ok

Sadly on our visit most of the houses were locked. It was lovely to see these old buildings and read a little about who would have lived in them, although we did lose interest as we could not venture inside many.

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.

Only few homes were opened and it was very disappointed, the place is big and we walked a lot and see the building but not inside
