A cheerful place
The Romanian Peasant Museum has been opened since 1990. It is a light, cheerful space, a far cry from the typical dusty grey museums that you see in Eastern Europe. It's a very comprehensive museum, paying tribute to the Romanian peasants, and the role they have played in the country's economy. Everyday utensils are presented in bright, lively rooms. At the entrance of the museum is a reconstruction of a village school. There was only one class for all ages and abilities, and the teacher would have to make do with the fact that parents might pull their children out of class to work in the field at any time.
