Made in 1936 with the effort of Professor Dimitrie Gusti (1880 – 1955), founder of Romanian sociology school, National Village Museum is one of the first ethnographic museum in the world and the second ethnographic museum open-air in the world, after the one in Stockholm. Take 2-3 hours to spend here, because it is definitely worth it.

The museum has more than 100.000 square meters/1076 ft. and is organized in typical villages. In the museum, you come through a chain of trees that will lead you to almost 300 authentic rustic structures from every Romanian region. If you do not have time to visit each rural area in the country, then you should go the National Village Museum.

Village life has a special significance in our culture, because until recently, most people carried a rustic existence (more than half of the population). Maybe you will be lucky and take part at some hand-made fair or shows of folk dance while there. At the entrance, you will find a souvenir shop.
