Is one of the most worth-visiting museum in Romania. The items are well preserved and the general atmosphere is one of tranquillity. Being an open-air museum you should take an umbrella with you when rainy days. What I liked the most is the authenticity of...More

A very interesting place, quiet and beautiful. In the middle of nature, water and a lot of beauty. Charming little houses gathered from all over Romania that awaken you the feeling of a place that is still alive.

It is beautiful landscape with many great traditional houses. We spent there more than 3 hours and it could be even more. One of the best open museums.

Astra closes late and even after closing the guards didn't rush us out. Hence arriving late afternoon in the summer is recommended. By 8pm practically everyone leaves and the place gets a very special ambience. We truly felt experiencing Romania of many decades and possibly...More
