Museum of Communism: A Time-Capsule of Ordinary Lives

Raluca With: Raluca 5
This is not a traditional communism museum - you will visit the apartment of a family who lived in communist Bucharest in the 1970s and 80s. Get a fascinating glimpse of life ordinary people had by touching, sitting, tasting, smelling, and feeling! Fully decorated and well-preserved with objects from that era, come and experience history in a different way!

Moments to expect during the communist museum visit:

  • A typical communist neighborhood

    A typical communist neighborhood

    Your time-capsule experience will start by entering a typical communist workers' neighborhood in Bucharest - Militari. Built in the 1960s to house factory workers, this will be a perfect introduction to your visiting experience! We pick you up at Gorjului Subway.

    The Communist Museum Time Capsule

    You will enter the apartment of a family that lived here from 1970 onwards. A typical 2-bedroom apartment for a family with child. Decorated with furniture, household items, objects, toys and all things from the communist era - you will travel back in time! The history lesson you're going to get about Romanian communism will be complete after seeing how ordinary people lived!

  • Life was different in the communist period

    Life was different in the communist period

    Life in the communist regime 40-50 years ago was VERY different: no technology, no imports, no foreign news. You will go from room to room to learn about people's lives: what they ate, where they worked, what kids would study and their activities. We have prepared some fun and engaging challenges for each room. At the end, you will taste typical dishes and drinks from the period and watch a video of the dictator Nicolae Ceausescu himself! A personalized souvenir is included in the experience :)
