The best museum in the city!
Aug 2020
Ethnographic Museum in ancient Plovdiv is the best museum in the city, I think. I was there on the 2nd of August 2009 and the pics are from then. The atmosphere was perfect and the staff was so kind. I left my glasses and they found me going down the street..it was perfect to search for me and was so kind!

Worthwhile

I’m usually not a fan of these types of museums but this one was very good. It was also a much better value than a lot of other sights in Plovdiv. Recommended.

Ladies at the desk...
Jan 2020
should stay at the desk for information and be more polite and informative.
We were the only guests at the museum and couldn't find someone to ask anything from the time we paid for our tickets to the time we left.

Baroque style with very interesting crafts and interactive tablet with music instruments on the second floor, wealth and a feeling of 19th century life.

Would recommend

This is a really beautiful building known as Kuyumdzhioglu House and was originally the home of a Plovdiv merchant. The house both inside and out is decorate with floral motives. There are a number of airy rooms and each has a carved wooden ceiling which are all different and really lovely. Th e exhibits include crafts, fabrics and clothing, musical instruments and works of art to mention a few. It is wonderful to take a leisurely tour through and the surrounding gardens are well kept

Beautiful house and garden. Inside there a 2 floor showing old crafts, machinery, clothing etc. Interesting overview, probably one needs 30min

A beautiful tradiotional building housing perhaps the most popular city museum.

This museum is located in the heart of the old town. It is inside a small garden and the exterior is wonderfully crafted and decorated. It's an example of the national revival period in Bulgaria. The museum itself is big with a lot to see but the exhibits in my opinion should be more up to date and more organized because when you visit you feel like something is missing. The entry price is reasonable and generally it worths a visit.

Don't go there - beautiful house but the lady at the desk is very rude!

I visited Plovdiv in November. The Ethnographic Museum is bases in one of the most beautiful houses in the Old Town but the lady at the desk was very unprofessional and rude. I really hope that next time I visit Plovdiv the recruitment policy in this museum would be of a higher standard and the staff will act in a more professional and adequate way!

A small museum packed full of finds from local digsites. Most description are in English as well as in Bulgarian. The exhibition tell a story of the local history, from the first settlers to now.

Situated in the heart of the Old Town, very picturesque traditional wooden painted house with pretty garden and interesting displays about costume, Bulgarian rural life and more inside. Interiors really impressive too with painted and wood carved ceilings.

Plovdiv spirit

He kept the Plovdiv spirit jealously. It offers the unique feeling of being immersed in the atmosphere of ancient Plovdiv. You must visit in order to feel like you are in Plovdiv
