The outdoor market in front of the museum is a good place to browse around!

We were pleasantly surprised by the local products ( a cake stand that steals the show), old wares, traditional costumes, old porcelain coffee sets , jewelry and many more brick a... read more

Sad to say that we were so convinced by the travel guides that we didn't check ahead or look at TripAdvisor. Our mistake! Really disappointed as it sounded fab. We did manage a nose around the shop. They carry a lot of stock in the space so it takes a while to look through if you have the patience. I... More

one of the biggest museums in romania and they decide to repair all together in the middle of the season and with no note; you just find it out when you are in front of the building. sad. sad. sad. Fortunately Bucarest is full of other places to see.

We went to the Peasant Museum only to find it had closed in June 2016 for at least two years for renovation. Unfortunately their website is still active and local guides still recommend it. Fortunately the superb Museum of Natural History is close by.

Shady place, recommended visit in summer. It's a collection of traditional constructions from different Romanian regions. Houses, barns, mills, churches most of which you can have a look at from the outside. Some you can visit and you will see traditionals tools, furniture, tissues, from the region the house originates.

I went to the Peasant Museum only to find that the museum has been closed for a couple of weeks. But I was not disappointed. The outdoor market place with Romania Artisans was full of sellers and buyers. There is much to look at and plenty to buy from clothing to antiques, cakes, jams, carvings, grilled meats, traditional Easter eggs... More

Like many other old places in Romania, the Peasant Museum has lost its glow. The last major decoration was made during communism and it still has that despicable touch of the so-called Golden Age. Many exhibits are not even genuine, but are modern reproductions, while others don’t have proper labelling. Museum staff are sometimes overzealous and unfriendly. I would have... More
