  • Visited a while ago, free parking, easy to find. Small museum with a leaflet in English but not much detail. Only takes 15 minutes to look around. Was about 6 levs to get in I think.  more »
  • There are the remains of a very old house found at the place. Yet you need the guy from the tickets desk to tell you the whole story and what they found, and all the piquant stuff. The interest thing....  more »
  • Horrible little place! It costs 5 leva to see what is basically a mound of dirt and a room of pottery and some small figurines with no explanation other than Bulgarian. Photos are not allowed, though I managed to sneak one of the mound of dirt and if you want to actually understand anything what you see you need to pay an extra 2 leva for a small booklet in English. Add to that the fact that this so called musuen is 2 kilometers from the center in an area full of gypsies and some sad communist buildings which make the experience even worse. Artefacts themselves are nice, albeit few and very small, put in glass containers that look like they were never cleaned since the fall of Communism. Save your time and money and don't bother with this!
  • Don't miss the chance to learn more about the ancient history, Thracians and about the dwellings. This is a must-see place in Stara Zagora!
  • If you want to learn about the very ancient history of Europe and start to really understand about the origin of the Thracians and their ancestors ' lifestyle the Neolithic dwelling spot is a must-see!
  • Really great historical and archaeological museum.
  • Unique. Small, but a must see
