There are more than 60 original houses, farmsteads, windmills,
watermills and churches from all of Romania's historic regions:
Transylvania, Oltenia, Dobrogea and Moldavia. Every exhibit has a plaque
showing exactly where in Romania it was brought from.
Most of the houses date from the mid 19th-century, but there are some,
such as those from Berbeşti, in the heart of Romania - celebrated for
their intricately carved entrances - which date from as early as 1775.
The highlight of the museum is probably the steep belfry of the wooden
Maramureş church, complete with exquisite but faded icons. You should
also not miss the earth houses of Straja, dug in to the ground and
topped with thatched roofs, or the brightly painted dwellings of the
. The museum has a great souvenir shop, and a stall selling traditional Romanian sweets and cakes.
