Astra Museum Sibiu

It is the most beautiful open-air museum in Europe

– Dutch curator Bernet Kempers

The Astra Museum is situated in Dumbrava Forest, Sibiu County, Transylvania.

It contains a vast number of old houses, windmills and watermills (400 traditional architecture and technology monuments, and thousands of other ethnographic objects).

The museum is one of the most important institutions of this kind in Europe, helping you to discover the traditional rural Romanian lifestyle.

Across the Planet

According to the existing information on the website of the Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Technical Heritage from Sibiu allows the reconstruction of technical archetypes from:
– Neolithic;
– the Geto-Dacian period;
– medieval era
.

In 2008, UNESCO established the Prize for Pre-Industrial Technical Heritage, and awarded to the “Astra” Museum in Sibiu, as a sign of recognition for the exhibited heritage and the scientific research of this institution.

The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future.
