You can learn everything about village life in the past few centuries, about building techniques, about different religions, about different parts of the country. It is one of the best museums that I have visited! And the price is a joke. 15 lei only.

Sadly, all the cottages were padlocked shut. My 9 year old found the many cats roaming the park more interesting than the buildings, so I'm glad they're there. The cafe didn't look very inviting.
