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

I'm ashamed at how little I knew about Bulgaria and Varna. This museum changed it all! We were very pleasantly surprised at the vast collection, and were enthralled. All for less than £5 entry fee.

It's a must-see for everyone who's interested in archeology and history. The museum has one of the best collections of Greek and Roman objects which might even rival that of Athens - all of them are very well preserved and the exposition is arranged in...More
