The Village Museum is located beside Herestrau Park and is a large open-air collection of traditional houses from all over Romania.
The host workshops for children and events throughout the year.
Kids can run and do bicycle there and the “roads” are better than in the park. For the museum, you can see house, house, house… nothing really awesome.
When the spring comes, it’s a lovely place to go out for a walk with kids, to feel a Romanian folk atmosphere, to visit some National art markets, which are often organised there.
The kids enjoyed running in and out of the houses in the village museum and we had a lovely lunch in the inn which has a little kids playground. Great for taking grandparents and having traditional romanian food on traditional plates. The gift shop is one of the best places in Bucharest for romanian gifts and you can access it without needing a ticket I think.
The village museum was one of the first places we visited when we arrived in Bucharest. The outdoor exhibits were really interesting. You could easily spend an hour or two wandering around the various historical houses. As the museum is located outdoors there is a lot of space for children and they have the freedom to run around. There’s also a cafe serving food, drinks and ice cream. It’s well worth a visit.
