"The museum in the heart of the capital", documents from 1936 the traditional life in the village, on a surface of 14 hectares with 380 monuments and 60,000 objects in the heritage collections.
The museum was arranged in the heart of the Romanian capital to reflect the importance of the village in the culture of Romania, a country where, even at the beginning of the twentieth century, most of the population lived in the country.

For the arrangement of the Village Museum, the houses were disassembled, piece by piece, transported by train, carriage or boat to Bucharest where they were assembled again, on the shore of Lake Herastrau. The oldest house is built in the 17th century, and the most recent one belongs to the 20th century. The houses from the hill regions and from the mountain regions are different from those from the plain area through the high foundation, the ones from the plains being the majority with low foundations, those coming from the areas where the enemies invaded, often being buried in the ground.

The atmosphere is more like that of a natural park than that of a museum, being reconstructed about all the elements that could remember the ancient times and the picturesque places.
