The Historical Museum Vidin, sometimes shortened to Konaka museum (Bulgarian: Музей "Конака"), is located in Vidin, Bulgaria. The museum, founded in 1956, is situated in a former Ottoman konak. The nice building is among the cultural memorials of the region.

Originally the 18th-century building was used as the Home by Osman Pazvantoğlu and later as police office, and the central tower was a lighthouse. After liberation the building was reconstructed and enriched with elements from Bulgarian Renaissance architecture. In 1956, the building was used for a historical weapon show.

  • We didn’t have chance to visit this place as we were run out of time. It looks beautiful and different from outside. It was very easy to be found. I would visit if it was opened.  more »
  • 2019 is not the best year to visit because of all the construction work that's been going around.
  • It's quaint little museum with a concise exposition. Staff was more than helpful.
  • На това място не е с лъскави полици, но има предмети от историята, които би било добре да видиш.
  • Цялата история на град Видин събрана на едно място.
  • Изложени са няколко епохи, както се започва от неолит та до късно средновековие.
