- Outdoors Activities travel tip
- City center
There are houses exposed, original peasant houses from all over the country. They were taken there with trucks together with the furniture and tools of the different folk crafts from weaving to wine making, there is everything.
There are also windmills and watermills, chariots that were used to carry the bride to the wedding and so many great things. There is a lake in the middle with a stage where there are performances of popular music and dance in the summer.
This is the best museum I have seen in the whole country. Senior people are hired to take care of the houses and they do the job very well, although sometimes too well. :) There are many paths you can take to see the houses and yards. The whole thing is like a big village. :)
Adults 15 lei (circa 5 $)
Children 4 lei (1,5 $)
Monday is free but you can't get in the houses.
Tuesday - Sunday: 10:00 to 18:00
Monday - Free but you can't go inside the houses.
