We visited this museum with my kids. It's very nice, has a lot of artifacts you can look at and it really gives a good idea of what life looked like 200 years ago I must say, however, that the information about all rooms is not that much and had it not been for the guided tour, I would have...

We really enjoyed visiting this museum. I really enjoyed learning about the history of Plovdiv and Bulgaria and found it quite interesting. Well worth a visit and doesn't take too much time. Beautiful architecture as well.

Not very big but very interesting to see. It is in old town very close to city center just a few minutes by walking. Must to see.

The Ethnographic Museum in Old Plovdiv, Bulgaria must have many stories to tell if walls could speak. I think anyone visiting Plovdiv should take the time to see this architectural wonder and the exhibitions offered are interesting as well. I found many things of interest both historically and artistically. The staff are friendly and English speakers will be comforted to... More

This museum is located in an old typical Bulgarian house with a garden. The atmosphere is really authentic, therefore it is worth visiting. The entry fee is 5lv (good value for the money). I especially enjoyed the small collection of Bulgarian jewellery in the last chamber.

So-so. You have a bunch of different exhibits displaying clothing, tools, jewelry, etc. traditional to the area. You can do the whole museum in under 30 min. House and grounds are awesome. Had higher hopes once we entered the area. Only cost 5 Lev. Was worth the price of admission.
