The whole west side of Herăstrău Park is given over to a massive outdoor museum, which has more than 270 authentic historic buildings.


Made from stone, wood or cob (clay and straw), these have been carefully dismantled and put back together at this site and come from all corners of the country, from Banat in the West to Moldova in the east and Transylvania in the center.

Each region has its own style, whether it’s the brightly painted walls from the Danube Delta to the ornately carved portals from Berbeşti in the center of Romania.

The museum was established by the eminent sociologist Dimitrie Gusti in 1936 and its oldest houses date from the 18th century.

Each house also has a recorded explanation of its style and region, available in English.
