Through more than 650,000 artifacts – Thracian gold and silver, pottery, icons, art & jewelry, mosaics – it tells the story of the European civilization from the dawn of times to the modernity. With focus on the 1300 years history of the Bulgarian state, the museum is a must-see attraction to visit while in Sofia. Closed on national holidays - 1 Jan, 24, 25 Dec.

“A great afternoon out with lots to learn about Bulgarian History”
Reviewed 22 December 2011

It was very quiet when we went, and they accepted my foreign student ID meaning the entrance fee was only 1 lv.

The artifacts on display ranged from the bronze age right up to the Bulgarian revolution, and the Last Bulgarian Tzar.

Freindly staff with clean toilets and a small snack shop, i will be going again soon.
