Tours

National Museum of Contemporary Art (MNAC)

The National Museum of Contemporary Art (MNAC) is located inside the Palace of the Parliament, the second largest building in the world. The museum extends the terms “visual culture” over many exciting areas: architecture-dependent on urban planning, social command, political and economic context; performing arts- theatre, opera, experimental music and decorative arts- glass, ceramics, industrial and fashion design, serving as a warrant for inclusion, helping overcome prejudice regarding the theme of “minor” arts versus “major” arts. Through visual culture, MNAC manages to combine specific museum functions with those of a true contemporary cultural centre.

Kitsch Museum

What better way to find out about Romania’s (sub)culture than Kitsch Museum? We don’t like to take ourselves too seriously and that’s why we can be creative, ridiculous and proud at the same time!

Located in the Old Town of Bucharest, Kitsch Museum is a celebration of all things tacky, garish, and bizarrely creative. The entire collection is divided into eight sections. There’s a Dracula section, naturally. There’s also religious and communist kitsch, just to spice things up. If you’re feeling creative in a funky way, then you’ll enjoy the Make Your Own Kitsch section, where you can craft the tackiest things that come to your mind.
