A fascinating museum which must be put on the list of things to see in Sibiu… And not because we say so but because the Michelin Green Guide gave it 3 stars.
The museum lies at 4 km from Sibiu in a stunning scenery in the Dumbrava Sibiului Nature Reserve. It is the ideal location to discover the traditional rural Romanian lifestyle while taking a relaxing walk in the middle of the nature. The 10 km of alleys will take you among peasant homesteads, workshops, small wooden churches, roadside crucifixes, sheepfolds, wine cellars, wind and water mills.
The original, perfectly preserved interiors will tell you about the simple life of Romanian peasants from all over the country, their occupations and traditions.
Beyond the amazing rural universe, the museum offers several other entertainment options: boat rides, carriage rides and horse-drawn sledge rides, a restaurant, accommodation, a tourist information centre and playgrounds. In summer, the museum is animated by numerous events – almost no week passes by without a cultural event!
A visit to the Open-air Museum will most certainly turn into a very special experience!
