This place is incredible! You can spend the whole day in there. It is an open space museum with hundreds of exibiths from all over Romania. And those houses are a hit! You can learn everything about village life in the past few centuries, about building techniques, about different religions, about different parts of the country. It is one of the best museums that I have visited! And the price is a joke. 15 lei only.
In the Winter this museum park is good for about a 1 hour stroll. Each individual cottage had an information board in Romanian and English (with funny translations). Sadly, all the cottages were padlocked shut. My 9 year old found the many cats roaming the park more interesting than the buildings, so I'm glad they're there. The cafe didn't look very inviting.
