Regardless if you are a foreign tourist or coming from out of town or an inhabitant of Bucharest, you must know that Bucharest hides many museums, of which, you might have not heard so far, yet you must certainly visit them.
The Museum of Records in Bucharest hosts an impressive collection of pressing irons, trivet (support for the pressing iron) and corkscrews, precisely over 30,000 corkscrews and over 35,000 pressing iron, reason for which it was included in the Book of Records. Each object in the museum has quite a story behind it, a purely fascinating and unexpected story. For instance, some corkscrews were used to open perfume or medicine bottles, and some pressing irons started as being made in glass or wood, their role being not that of flattening but of making folds.
The Museum of Records aims at extending and reach the record on other objects, such as: stamps, cameras and many others. Worth visiting!
