The Village Museum formally National Museum of the Village "Dimitrie Gusti" (Muzeul Național al Satului "Dimitrie Gusti" in Romanian) is an open-air ethnographic museum located in the King Michael I Park (Bucharest, Romania), showcasing traditional Romanian village life. The museum extends to over 100,000 m2, and contains 272 authentic peasant farms and houses from all over Romania.
The village was a creation of the folklorist and sociologist Dimitrie Gusti. The location plans were executed by the writer, playwright, director Victor Ion Popa and set designer Henri H. Stahl. The necessary financial funds were provided by the Royal Cultural Foundation and in the presence of King Carol II of Romania the museum was inaugurated on May 10, 1936.

Interesting, like a park Been here several times for a walk or for university drawing projects while student. The place is calm and with some very beautiful old traditional houses but, in the same time it is an old, classic museum. There is no much life inside and some houses are dusty and look abandoned. Overall the place is nice to have a weekend long walk or to vary children activities.

Village Museum is one of the coolest locations in Bucharest. A nice place where you might learn something about Romania, especially if you are the prime minister of an advanced, civilized country (let's say, for instance, Japan) and you make an official visit to Romania with the hope of discussing some serious issues but you find out (in the last moment) that the Romanian government ceased to exist.

There wasnt much to do yet it was a very nice place to walk around. Make sure to watch your step as the paths are a bit damaged at places. Tall people will struggle to go inside some of the old houses. Bring carrots for the animals, they are cute and friendly. Fun for little kids maybe.

Nice for an outside walk discovering the different houses and some old technologies but it would have been even better if we could have enter in more buildings.

An amazing museum in the heart of Bucharest !! Over there, the visitor can observe the old time Romania and how natives many years before used to live !!! The place is majestic and with just a walk could see everything..The ticket price is 15 Lei so its a normal price and the guys there totally helpful to everyone !!!
