Why locals love it
ASTRA Complex Museum is located in Dumbrava Forest, on the outskirts of Sibiu. It's an open-air museum that was set up in a forest. Traditional houses from Sibiu county were moved from their original setting and rebuilt in the open-air museum. As Sibiu has only one park, this museum is the best place for a walk especially during weekends.
Why you should visit it
ASTRA museum features traditional houses from all the corners of Sibiu county. You will see old wood houses, water mills and wind mills, a wood church, and various households with granary, barn, and columbarium. If you don't have time to visit Romanian villages, this is a good way to understand a bit of the rural architecture.
The museum is pretty big, so consider at least a couple of hours to walk through and wear comfortable shoes.
