Full description
The Dimitrie Gusti National Village Museum is one of Bucharest’s most impressive and must-see attractions. The open-air ethnographic museum stretches for 15 hectares along the shore of Herastrau Lake. It is the ideal place for solo travelers and families alike to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.  

Skip the line at the entrance and take a guided tour of approximately 300 traditional peasant houses and outbuildings dating from the 17th to 20th centuries. Explore houses, wooden churches, windmills, wells, wayside crosses, and numerous folk art items brought from different regions of Romania.  

To help immerse you in the peasant life experience, your guide will provide detailed explanations of the objects and describe the day-to-day activities of villagers.

Seventy-two structures of the Village Museum are declared historical monuments. None are copies of originals — all have been acquired from peasants, dismantled piece by piece, and transported to Bucharest.

At the end of the tour, you can also browse a local shop filled with authentic Romanian souvenirs.
