Dracula Meets Ceausescu: Museum’s Homage to Romanian Kitsch

The Kitsch Museum in Bucharest offers visitors a playful, nostalgic walk through a gaudy world of glitz – flaunting the most exuberant and ridiculous aspects of Romania’s flashy pop culture.

Alongside sumptuous palaces and a few old Byzantine churches, art and history museums are Bucharest’s highlights in terms of cultural tourism.

Located in the capital’s old town on two floors of an historic building, two years after its opening it attracts about 30 visitors a day – most of them foreigners.

The best way to understand the Romanian (sub) culture. Romanian KITSCH is authentic as we are creative, ridiculous and proud in the same time.

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.

Seven KITSCH areas presented (basically seven stories) – Kitsch from the communism period, Dracula Kitsch, Gypsy Culture, Religious Kitsch, Modern era Kitsch, Make Your Own Kitsch and Kitsch Art Gallery.
Average visiting time: 33 minutes.

Open daily from 12:00 to 20:00
