Editor's review

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.
