By far Varna's largest museum, this is a fascinating look into the town's history dating back thousands of years. I'm not a history or archaeology buff, but this was an interesting and relaxing 1.5 hours, with exhibits on ancient tombs, jewellery, and pottery. My personal...More

This museum is totally impressive. I have rarely seen such a well displayed collection (with English descriptions) of Roman, Thracian, and other ancient treasures, all of which appear to be from the Varna area! Totally enchanting.

Wonderful collection of Thracian, Ancient Greek and Roman artifacts in this underappreciated medium-sized museum on the sea shore where cultures and civilizations shared the same land for millenia. Visit to follow the traces of the cultures gone and wander alone in this friendly, well-organised space....More

People are giving average rating of the museum because it was not fun for their children!!! No, it is NOT a zoo or a touchy-feely science museum. It is a serious Archaeology museum with very well displayed and explained important objects from the old Odessa,...More

I'm ashamed at how little I knew about Bulgaria and Varna. This museum changed it all! We were very pleasantly surprised at the vast collection, and were enthralled. All for less than £5 entry fee.
