The Vilklage Museum in Bucharest
Aug 2021
The Village Museum in Bucharest, Romania, is a must-see for anyone who wants to find out more
about the traditional way of life in historic Romania. The exhibition currently running focuses on The
Art of Upper Embroidery in Women’s Traditional Shirts. The exhibition is a display of exquisite yarn
art. The display of traditional Romanian houses is a feast for the eyes and offers some serious food
for thought, as the architecture and building techniques employed take into consideration the
specifics of different environments, climates and natural oddities that could have had an impact on
the inhabitants.
The visit at the museum was enriching for me, as it allowed me to see “in real life” and explore
different types of dwelling in traditional Romania, different styles of dressing and, ultimately, gave
me an insight into the culture of my ancestors.
I would definitely recommend the experience to both foreigners who want to learn more about
Romanian, and to people who have a cultural Romanian heritage and who would like to deepen
their knowledge of it, like myself.

One Of Bucharest's Must-Dos
Apr 2021
The village museum is home to many original historic rural homes from the Romanian countryside. Most were disassembled in their original location, carried to Bucharest and then reassembled in their current location with the goal of recreating a village atmosphere in the new open-air museum. And it really worked - you will get to see houses from all of Romania's regions in this museum and you really shouldn't miss it.

Not what it could be
Aug 2021
The museum occupies a fairly large area, on one side of Herastrau Park. An interesting museum, there are dozens (maybe over 100) of old houses ( and not only: there are also churches, windmills, watermills, etc) from various parts of the country. Unfortunately, very few of them can be visited indoor.

Very peaceful
Jul 2021 • Friends
If you want to take a stroll back in time this is the place to be. It's a very peaceful setting where you can learn about Romania, seeing houses from a lot of different areas, with very distinctive arhitectural styles. It's definitely worth the visit.

An absolute must to visit
May 2021
This is a must visit if you visit Bucharest and also do not forget to visit the museum shop. Very friendly staff, however, we also found an idiot working there who simply asked us why we were looking in details at a house. Despite this, this museum must be visited.

Memorable 😍
May 2021 • Couples
It is such a beautiful place, full of history. A perfect way to spent a weekend afternoon. Here we can see houses 🏠 from different areas or times in a natural landscape. Suitable for children, they can play in all this area. They have also a restaurant and a play zone. The entrance fee is 20Ron/4Euro for adult. Mandatory to visit if you arrive in Bucharest. They also have local products exposed along the houses.

A Walk through History
May 2020
Wonderful setting and very informative concerning past housing histories. It was an easy walk around the grounds and inside the various houses from the past. There are informative plaques near each building.
