A place where you can visit traditional Romanian houses for 3 hours without getting bored. A truly remarkable achievement. There are enough parking spaces and access is easy. The price of an access...

Reprezentative museum for romanian history and etnography. It's a must see in Sibiu, Romania! The price for entrance is 35 lei. It is an open air museum. A simple walk through the 96 ha museum...

It's a great museum. The houses are amazing and well preserved, the place is huge. I spent an extremely relaxing day. There are several terraces where meals can be served. It is a lake with swans. Visiting this museum you understand that the peasant technique was not at all rudimentary, but used all the resources at hand. What I would have liked in this wonderful place would be an electric train, tricycles to cover long distances, clearer markings, explanations on all the doors of the houses (many are missing) and, why not, the possibility to stay overnight in one of the museum's cottages. Anyway, it was a wonderful experience.
What a wonderful museum! We spent a good part of today wandering around and I'd like to go back later in the week. And it's really great for the kids as well: there's a house with a lot of toys that is arranged in a fascinating manner, there are also activities (mine were busy building with blocks for a very long time), and there are miniature water-mill houses that start working once water is let through. And it's even a lovely place to just go for a walk.
