I am a amateur on kitsch, just like the others. I don’t think there are kitsch experts for it is no science. I will consult the feedbacks and the visitors’ ratings to make changes or enrich the items’ collection,” said the museum’s owner.

He invited artists to join him in this adventure and to exhibit in the Kitsch Art gallery. „Any Romanian artist who will want to display works in the Kitsch Art gallery upstairs is welcomed. There is only one condition: the works must be kitschy!”.

The price of a ticket is RON 30 (about EUR 6.5), with discounts for the Romanians „ by one third for they are sympathetically exposed to the kitsch every day”.gypsy style
