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!

Some interesting archeological items from around the region, with good historical explanatory notes. Worth a visit, especially on a poor weather day.

The museum has a comprehensive collection of relics found in the area dating back to the earliest evidence of human habitation right up through all the empires that conquered the city, as well as a good description of where they were found and when they were created, in various languages including English. The only downside is that they don't allow... More

This is once again as in many museums of this nature, a most amazing collection taking the visitor through the many Mileniums of Civilization in a specific corner of our world...

Having a day in Varna, we decided to visit this museum and what a gem it is. We were impressed at the exhibits from the 4th/5th century BC, and also the explanation of the exhibits. We had a local guide with us which enhanced the experience, but it is a "must-see" if you are in Varna.

This is a surprisingly good museum. The displays are modern, well-lit , and with English signage. The is a good flow to the museum and there is much to be learned. The display of ancient jewelry is stunning. The staff appear to be an interesting lot, some more friendly than others, but mostly unconcerned with visitors.
