The Astra Folk Civilization Museum is located four kilometers from Sibiu in the middle of a 993 ha. reservation.

The reservation also holds a 16 ha. lake. An authority decision gave the museum its name in 1992. This place occupying 100 ha. is a real folk museum. The plan to make such a museum occurred to Vuia Romulus in 1940, but until this project came into being he had to wait 23 years.

340 country houses had been brought here from all over the country, with original sets of furniture, tools of handicraftsman and former means of transportation. The 35.240 folk pieces help us see way rural people did agriculture, stock-breeding, apiculture, fishing and hunting. A special space is accorded for the display of the former mills(hand, wind, water, animal operated mills). Here you can also see an inn from Harghita county, built in 1922 that still worked in 1958. This is Romania's biggest Skanzen.
