  • Wide spaces emphasize a military collection noteworthy, well preserved, and attracted huge. Moreover, the entrance is free and as pressure remains about two kilometers from the main attractions. Walk 20 minutes in very nice neighborhood, by taxi 5 minutes and costs two or three euros. Recommended.

  • Museum is must see for all who are even remotely interested in military or anyone who plays shooting or tank video games. Entrance fee is worth every penny. Museum exhibits more german weapons than museum in Berlin and a lot of soviet weapons. In outside exhibition you can see a lot of tanks, military aircrafts and much more. Almost everything is written in english. Only bad thing is that you are prohibited to take photos.
  • One of the best military museums ever. It has rich exhibition and many paintings.
  • Not one of the great Sofia museums, but at least they have some cool weapons and heavy military machines.
  • Loved it, it was awesome and very impressing!
  • Excellent collection of armaments and good exhibits, particularly given budgetary constraints.
