  • Definitely worth a visit, the tichet is 30 lei, but sunday it's 20. And you can play fifa 99. I really recommend to visit because it's the perfect place to feel like you are living in 1990. Great muse...  more »

  • I've been there after i've red the reviews on TripAdvisor, caught by curiosity. But i have to say that is really nothing special and not worthy, especially for the price you pay to see two chambers fu...  more »

  • A great little quirky museum, with some interesting displays explaining more about the Roma people, Dracula, Bram Stoker, life under Ceaucescu... The pulsing red lights in places put me off a little, but still definitely worth a visit. I'd recommend checking it out. Talking to the founder and curator, I think it's only going to keep improving too. The entrance is easily missed, but do check it out. You'll be glad you did.
  • This is definitely worth a stop when you’re in Bucharest - a charming small museum that is both fun and winds up teaching you a lot about Romanian day to day culture that you wouldn’t otherwise learn.
  • Kitsch.   Like porn is hard to describe but you know it when you see it.    Here's the first definition  provided by Google: ".. art, objects, or design considered to be in poor taste because of excessive garishness or sentimentality, but sometimes appreciated in an ironic or knowing way." So it was with great interest as well as curiosity that my wife and I entered the Romanian Kitsch Museum in Bucharest's Old City.    As you ascend a flight of stairs there are some examples of the "exhibits" awaiting you - a painted superman savior, a few of the seven dwarfs - before you reach a door with a paper "Open the door" sign pinned to it. Beyond that door you pay - cash or card - the 30 lei fee ($7.34  €6.43) and ascend a step to the world of kitsch. Sure, the museum is small (it's not the Louvre) but there are exhibits everywhere all sort of categorized.... We enjoyed the museum immensely taking our time and repeating our steps to see what we may have missed. Kitsch is, after all, a matter of taste...  You will love it or hate it...    But a museum devoted to it is something you don't see every day... My guess is the museum is best experienced with "tongue in cheek."   As it states at the bottom of the museum ticket: "nothing is more vulgar than sophisticated kitsch."
  • It's interesting. It's small. It seems expensive (30 RON) for what it is. However, if you're a tourist and you want a more rounded understanding of Romanian culture, then this information about Romanian kitsch culture will be a nice addition to your tour. Of course, if you don't mind paying 6 GBP/30 RON... Bearing in mind that the houses of Parliament tour costs 40 RON and is curated by a knowledgeable guide.
  • Fun place, great sense of humour. Kitsch is difficult to look at for anyone with taste but this museum takes the p*** out of it.
