Generally lauded as Bucharest's best museum, the Museum of the Romanian Peasant expounds upon the theme of the Village Museum, displaying objects from all aspects of folk life, often in a playful manner. The collection includes peasant clothing and weavings, ceramics, painted eggs, handmade tools and more religious iconography than we can stand to look at. Located in a fine brick building near the Piata Victoriei metro stop, the museum formerly honoured the Communist Party and Romanian Revolutionary Workers Movement, so it's fitting that there is a display of communist iconography in the basement today (though it's a rather paltry exhibition). Adults 8 lei, seniors 3 lei, children and students 2 lei. Open Tuesday to Sunday, 10:00 to 18:00.

We found this museum to be really interesting. The traditional costumes were absolutely stunning and, having travelled quite a lot in the region, we could see the various themes / similarities to other nearby countries and cultures. There is something very specific and beautiful about Romania, and this place gives a great insight.
