The museum has different old houses from different areas in Rumania. It may be interesting but I personally think it's much better travelling around Romania and the the typical houses and constructions in real. I felt a bit like being in a playground.

Having houses, households, churches and technical buildings from all over Romania, the Bucharest Village Museum is the most complete one in the country. On a few hours one can have a trip around Romania and get acquainted with the traditional architecture from all the regions. See the interiors, too, they are very interesting, with sometimes surprising pieces of furniture.

I was truly amazed by this museum. It's a fascination collection of rural buildings collected over many decades, and show the extraordinary variety of cultures that make up this country. And it's all beautifully set in parkland next to a lake. I like mechanical things and was particularly intrigued by the various mills. This is a must-see for any visitor... More

Many, many lovely & interesting buildings from all parts of Romania, including Churches, mills etc. The buildings are all set in gardens & it was so enjoyable to walk around... More

We spent a few hours here and found it quite interesting. However its worth not getting there too early because they only started opening up some of the houses around 11ish, when we had nearly finished looking round. Once you have been in about half a dozen they all begin to look pretty much the same inside. There is a... More

This expansive open air museum is an incredible collection of buildings from the Romanian countryside. It even includes a stave church! The buildings are well preserved and presented is a natural setting conducive to strolling and admiring the historical values of bygone days in Eastern Europe. It is worth at least half a day for a full experience. The gift... More
