An absolute highlight if you are on holiday in the area.
This museum is wonderful for a day out., ou have a large area to have a walk and explore the housing of centuries past. We had a guide who was able to explain all the details about not only how the ho... more »
Feels like a trip back in time in old Romanian villages. Very beautiful and interesting. For sure worth going if you find yourself near Sibiu. Worth noting is reserving a carriage ride that takes you through the entire park to bring you even deeper into the atmosphere. A reminder that Mondays and Tuesdays the actual insides of most of the houses are not open which would also be worth seeing however shouldn't be in my opinion a deal breaker.
Though we visited late in the afternoon, and on a Tuesday when the houses inside the museum are closed, it's a really beautiful place to walk / or bike (you can rent or bring your bike from 18:00 to 20:00, when the Museum closes). I understand that there are a lot of events, so you can check out the website to find out more. So peaceful, quiet and full of positive energy. There is a traditional Romanian restaurant and some kiosks to buy water, if you run out of it during a hot summer day. Will definitely return for a longer visit next time.
