The Romanian Peasant Museum is one of the most popular museums in Bucharest and hosts a large collection of cultural objects that are well exhibited. The exhibitions cover all aspects of life in rural Romania and include traditional and seasonal objects.
The Peasant Museum hosts regular craft markets in its grounds, including special traditional markets for Christmas and for Martisori (1st March / Spring). If the craft market is not on, then you should make sure that you end your visit with a trip to the museum shop which is at the back of the museum. The museum also hosts regular children’s puppet shows (usually at the weekends at 10.30am and 12pm) and has a cafe.
The museum is located just north of Piata Victoria and is therefore well served by public transport. After you visit there are lots of options for eating nearby on Str. Nicolae Titulescu, or for running off energy in Kiseleff Park. Nearby are both the Natural History Museum and the National Geology Museum.
