I can't help myself to consider this Museum of Traditional Folk Civilization, which I visit at least at every two months, an endless source of energy based on its richness..old traditional houses, crafts, work shops, beautiful and interactive events, like fairs or concerts or theater performances, nice people and playful cats..a.s.o. Although I could reach the museum by bus no... More

Lovely day spent walking around the numerous buildings which looked lovely in the snow. None of the buildings were open to see into when we visited which was a shame. Nice taverna at the end of the walk around the lake

As previous contributors have mentioned, this open air museum has examples of Romanian architecture from different centuries. You can go inside some (the best bit) and there are people explaining how the different equipment works. Lots of examples of windmills. It is easy to walk round as the paths are wide and you could cut off bits if you didn't... More

This is a huge museum and for a complete visit is not enough one day. It is bigger than a village. There are houses from all over Romania, that is very good for a foreigner tourist that is interested in Romanian history and traditions. It is very complex, not having only houses, there are churches, schools, pubs and other buildings... More

A part of romanian history. Beautiful enheritage and tradition are very well preserved in Astra museum. You can learn about life in XIX century in Romania, about traditions and you can see the original romanian houses from the entire Romanian country. It is gorgeous.

Just on the outskirts of Sibiu is the Astra outdoor museum representing the various traditional villages throughout Romania demonstrating their unique construction and layout styles. We figured we were pressed for time so opted for a horse-drawn circumvent of the park. This made the most sense given that the park is open all year, but the buildings are not open... More

I'm from Sibiu, I have been to this outdoor museum many times and i can tell you it impresses me always. Every time I go there there is a new house, there are new animals, and new people that " live in the houses" and can explain their history. There is something I would change. The people " living there"... More

Unfortunately, we went here on a Monday where the people who work in the Museum Outdoor was not working. Boo-hoo. So, we could not see any live activities. But we had a good time walking around the Museum examining the windmills (lots of them) and the artefacts from Romania. We also had our lunch in the medieval-decorated restaurant. Love it.
