The Village Museum, as you see it today, leaves the impression of a typical village from Maramures. One straight road and several crooked roads or paths make up the inherent structure of the settlement and they all converge as in all Maramures villages, towards the church.
The wooden homes of hand-hewn timbers represent Jewish, Slavic, Hungarian, German, and Romanian habitations from the 17th and 18th centuries. The houses are preserved intact both inside and out, with original carving on the doorways, and some of the writing in Cyrillic and even Arabic.
