  • One of the iconic museums in Bucharest. They manage to reveal some beauty & beliefs connected to the rural life.
  • It represents Romanian rural culture and heritage. They have some extra activities, cinema, concerts, book launches, traditional food fairs. It's an absolutely wonderful representation of the past!
  • The museum is closed for at least another year due to building restoration an attendant told me. There is a 1 room photo exhibition about Oina, a Romanian traditional sport, this can be accessed through the cafe where you can also find the shop which is a treasure trove! I gave a 4* review despite not visiting to not reduce the current rating, more to give information.
  • The museum was actually closed when I went but the have an awesome cafe around back that we went to twice. There is a great gift shop attached to the building as well with everything you could possibly hope to take home with you from Romania.
  • Romanian traditions, motifs, clothing and tools, all in one place. must see if you're in Bucharest. right next door from the Antipa Museum.

Where to stay in Bucharest

To take advantage of Bucharest's lively downtown, look for accommodations in the areas of Universitatii square, Unirii, Romana, or Victoriei to be closest to bars, clubs, and restaurants, as well as many of the major sights. Choose from a variety of hostels and budget hotels, or book a night at one of the mid-range or luxury hotels. If you decide to venture farther out of the city, look for lodging close to public transportation to avoid the city's notoriously bad traffic.
