The collection of peasant bric-a-brac, costumes, icons and partially restored houses make this one of the most popular museums in the city. There’s not much English signage, but little cards in English posted in each room give a flavour of what’s on offer. An 18th-century church stands in the back lot, as does a great gift shop and restaurant.

Don’t miss the jarring communism exhibition downstairs, which focuses on the Ceauşescu-era program of land collectivisation, which almost completely destroyed the traditional peasant way of life.
