This stunning museum contains a collection of 50 buildings representing the design and the history of Romania’s rural architecture. The Village Museum, the largest in Europe, was founded in 1936 by royal decree. Here you can admire churches, steep-roofed peasant homes, log cabins and thatched barns, all these being carefully taken apart, shipped to the museum and rebuilt in order to reconstruct the village atmosphere. With different occasions, in the Village Museum you can assist special events where you have the opportunity to observe folk artisans showing their traditional skills in pottery, weaving and different crafts. At the gift shop of the museum you can buy crafts and folk arts.
