The word “KITSCH” refers to an artwork that has been created in poor taste, something conspicuously vulgar or theatrically sentimental that evokes a slight nauseous feeling on the part of the viewer.PutRomanian Kitsch Museum into our Bucharest trip planning site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
Seven KITSCH areas presented (basically seven stories) -Kitsch from the communism period, Dracula Kitsch, Gypsy Kitsch & more.
Search for the flag with Ceausescu and when you are standing next to it, look for the rainbow themed museum doors, which are somewhat hidden fom view behind a couple of white umbrellas that belong to the restaurant next door.
Very funny experience but real and educational in the same time.
It's an interactive experience. You can take pictures inside and you can interact with the exponats.(touch them)
Average visiting time: 33 minutes.
The museum is located in the city center( in the Old Town), so it’s easy to get inside while you exploring the rest of the city.
An Museum that is dedicated solely to showcasing some of the country’s most garish, creative, ridiculous and somewhat distasteful objects in all their glory.
Romanian Kitsch Museum Reviews
Makes You smile, think, wonder, shake your head, be surpriced and when done wanting to do it again. Absolute recommended more »
Genuinely interesting and endearingly weird museum which gives great insight into Romanian culture. The documentary upstairs on the tv opposite the sofa is harrowing but absolutely worth a watch. Not.... more »
I came here with my girlfriend, who is Romanian. The museum is located in the city center, so it's easy to get inside while exploring the rest of the city. The museum is very funny, but at the same time educational. As a foreigner that knows little or nothing about Romanian culture, it was a nice and smart way to get an insight into it. My girlfriend loved even more, so I guess it's something to visit for everyone. Staff was very kind. Talking in English wasn't a problem, as they look very capable. We even got a free souvenir. If you're looking for something different than the usual tourist attraction, this is the right place where to start from.
After telling my Italian boyfriend many stories about Romanian "fashion" and "culture" I finally had the chance to show it live to him! This museum offers a great understanding of kitsch Romanian "art" and very accurate descriptions about all the exponats! It is also interactive and you can have a lot of fun! Would definitely recommend
