  • The Rustic museum is located in the Rastafou Park, a large and impressive museum with lots of finds. Stretches on a very large area in the park and the entrance will not be worth a visit. The museum presents a very large number of old buildings when most of them actually dismantled from where they were and the beams were counted to be re-introduced in the museum just the way it was. The museum presents the buildings according to different regions of Romania from the south to the north of all the different regions of the country and shows the difference between life and area. A large part of the open houses are furnished and designed as it was. There are also non-residential buildings like various wind stations from different periods and different use, an ancient church and a palace. There are also various agricultural buildings and a restaurant for those who want a break while wandering around. There is no time limit and in fact it is possible to even walk out of the museum area and a fireplace to return again. The ticket is good for the whole day. The place is very guarded and well-tended and friendly. Recommended

  • It is supposed to represent the rural culture of Romania but it still lacks a lot to really be a museum. It's OK to take a walk in the houses but there is no information in general. With good weather it's a nice walk and you take advantage of the park next door. The price of the entrance is also rather symbolic, about €4 per adult

  • The best place I visited while being in Bucharest. Truly scenic place. The whole concept is unique and the traditional houses very nicely built and restored. It is worth the visit. The entrance fee is reasonable and as far as European university students are concerned it is even lower. The map is really useful. Be prepared for a 3 to 4 hour stroll, so it is advised to chose a warm sunny day and comfortable shoes!
  • The best place to see more Romanian houses from many corners of the country, you can find here houses, mills, churches, windmills and animal shelters from all regions of Romania and they even have some animals here to recreate the rural atmosphere. In my opinion it is the greatest museum of Romania. Also they have all sorts of events during the year, and it is worth visiting.
