The Bucharest Village Museum is an excellent outdoor museum, featuring dozens of structures such as houses, churches, and windmills from all of the regions of Romania
. The museum was started in 1936. Most of these structures were located elsewhere, dismantled, and moved to the Village Museum. Both children and adults will enjoy strolling the grounds of the Village Museum, which is located on 15 hectares on the shores of Lake Herastrau. Each item is marked with a plaque showing a photo of the structure in the original location. The many wooden buildings reminded me of the Kizhi Outdoor Museum
I visited the Bucharest Village Museum with the other passengers on the Viking Neptune as part of our Eastern European Odyssey Danube River cruise. We flew to Bucharest, spent the night and next day there, and then took a coach to the Danube to embark on our ship. For our day in Bucharest, we toured the interior of the Parliament Palace and saw other Bucharest sites.
