Why locals love it

Muzeul Satului (“Village Museum”) was founded in the 1930s and includes authentic peasant houses and farms, churches and ethnographic collections from all over Romania, to illustrate architectural and regional diversity. Most of the houses and churches are open to the public.

Why you should visit it

This outdoor museum makes a pleasant walk in any season and is as close to rural life as one can get in the heart of Bucharest. You will be impressed by the intricate details of vernacular architecture. You can also taste local food specialties at the museum’s restaurant.

Special tip

You can buy wonderful craftsmanship products and souvenirs from the museum shop, beautifully decorated Easter Eggs and ethnographic pottery.

A place full of history where you can see how romanians lived in the 18/19th centuries.

Any Village Museum in Romania is a realistic historical depiction of the rustic way of being. Visit in the spring-summer season is recommended.
