It costs only around 3 Euro to enter and shows you the history of the generations before this one. Would highly recommend if you're visiting the old town.

Situated in the old town of Plovdiv, first the building is a very interesting architecture. Inside there are a lot of art effects from different periods of time, mainly in the Plovdiv region. Do spend some time to learn more about the history.
