A must see when in Varna City! Just wear comfortable shoes for lots of walking & cool clothes (if going in summer) since only a few rooms have air conditioning.

Just about as good as archaeological museums get. Well organized, well lit, clearly labelled - a comprehensive collection of finds illustrating the long and eventful history of the Varna region.

The Varna Archaelological Museum is a gem! The displays were very well done, in English and Bulgaria, and covered pre-historic to current times.

Lake of the city inhabited by an advanced civilization of people who have done exceptional jewelry ornaments of gold. The excavated necropolis dates back to about 7,000 years ago! The museum has other interesting exhibits of history people inhabited the Bulgarian lands.

Well worth a visit. It costs 10 lev, and we asked for the tickets. We spent about 3 and half hours there, so have a drink in one of the town cafes beforehand. The courtyard cafe wasn’t open but there is an OK-coffee machine in the basement area, close to the nice, clean loos. The museum is kept nice and... More

Absolutely brilliant. I've never seen so many local artefacts so well preserved under one room. What an amazing cultural history the area has!
