  • All periods are really well presented. I was impressed by the coach of Maria Antonieta and King Ferdinand. The archeology hall was incredible, especially Selvii Calist treasure. I hope they don't...  more »
  • Guide was very nice. Satisfied and recommended. the price of tickets were low. Many different artifacts from different eras.  more »
  • Honestly I was more interesting in seeing the old bathhouse building itself but it has pretty much been renovated away into this OK, mildly interesting museum.  more »

  • Beautiful museum not too big. Starts promising. Strangely enough the Ottoman time is neglected, only one display in a corridor refers to. Strange. The Golden carriage wil impress your children.
  • A fascinating museum that I found incredibly interesting to visit. Very welcoming and friendly staff and well laid out exhibits. My only criticism would be there's no content from Communist-era Bulgaria.
  • Very beautiful museum, worth a visit, the exhibits are awesome and extremely well placed. Still, it is outrageous to ask 15lv (almost 8€) to allow you to take pictures. The entrance ticket is 8lv, I think it is a fair price for this place.
  • Interesting museum, worth popping by! Shouldn't take more than an hour or two to wander around. Make sure you visit the fountains and try the water across the street while you're here!
  • Beautiful building, much more impressive than the museum itself which has excellent exhibits but has no logic to it, everything is thrown together without a clear timeline and plenty of history is ommited (nothing from the Ottoman and Communist periods). Entrance was 6 lev which is an OK price for it but they ask for an extra 15 if you want to take pictures. I didn't pay that and honestly save your money, not much to photograph anyway, maybe just the chariots and some of the furniture. I spent more time examining the architecture of the building.
