This museum is totally impressive. I have rarely seen such a well displayed collection (with English descriptions) of Roman, Thracian, and other ancient treasures, all of which appear to be from the Varna area! Totally enchanting.

Visit to follow the traces of the cultures gone and wander alone in this friendly, well-organised space....More

People are giving average rating of the museum because it was not fun for their children!!! No, it is NOT a zoo or a touchy-feely science museum. It is a serious Archaeology museum with very well displayed and explained important objects from the old Odessa,...More
