In 1928, Ioachim Miloia, then director of the Museum of Banat (1928-1940), considers the idea of creating an open-air ethnographic museum. After the opening of the Ethnographic Museum of Transylvania in Cluj in 1928, Ioachim Miloia proposes to the City Hall that the new ethnographic museum should be built in the courtyard of Huniade Castle.

The new Ethnographic Museum aimed to be a testament of the Romanian traditional folk civilization and of the national minorities of the region through the wooden churches, crosses of great historic and artistic value and the peasant houses.

After many calls to the City Hall, Banat Village Museum receives a building right in 1967 and opens to public on 20th of August, 1971. Until 2000 the museum works as part of the Museum of Banat and becomes after a separate institution subordinated to the Timis County Council. Banat Village Museum is an essential touristic site for the visitors interested in the traditional culture and civilization from the west side of Romania.

Banat Village Museum manages to make a thumbnail of Banat villages by building authentic wood, stone and clay houses made after the local model. Tourists attracted by the Banat culture can find household items used in the past centuries, can admire the architecture of the houses. These, though with 2 or 3 rooms, attract attention with guest rooms, known as "clean stove," big stove" or "good stove”, being the most beautiful furnished and decorated with precious fabrics - towels, rugs, tablecloths once called "masaie".

The architecture of the houses is improved with the open porch (extended along the length of construction) and partial porch. Also, the roof stands out with the beauty of wood decorations and of the traditional geometric patterns. Thus, Banat Village Museum describes with great care the homes covered with hay or shingles, the houses of peasants or of the pottery artisans, the traditional plants used by the peasants mills, “vaiuga”, “oloinite”.
