  • We enjoyed the place very much. Old Romania as rural is fantastic. We came before closing time and still it was wonderful. There are ducks in the lake and chickens..  more »
  • The museum is super beautiful. The terrain is very large, you should have good shoes on and adjust to a lot of running. You will find houses from many regions of the country, mills, churches, a school, farms, etc. In some cases, the houses are furnished with traditional furniture and decorated as before. There are also animals on some farmsteads. The food in the museum's own restaurant is delicious.

  • Really nice place for visit! Recommend for families. Large domain for visiting - approx 3 hours long. Good restaurants within the place. Various types of old houses from all regions of the country.
  • I think this one of the most beautiful open air museums what I have ever visited. Place is very beautiful for walk, you can see how was live in the past. I was there in March and all houses aren’t open just from April place coming more to live, I heard best is during summer. I really recommend to everyone.
