Follow the history of the area, and its growth, the old jewellery found buried with the owners was stunning and gave a great incite to the rich poor divide. Was a great couple of hours well worth a visit.

This collection would be welcomed by museums in major European and US cities and some of it already has been. Incredible treasures, nicely displayed in a beautiful 19th century building. Including absolutely breathtaking Thracian gold.

A wonderful surprise. I think it was 5 lv apiece. We spent 4+ hours and were totally surprised and thrilled at the sheer amount of artifacts on display. Certainly worth a half day.. Who would have thought that Bulgaria would have such a rich history.

That place (Varna) has an interesting history, starting millenniums before 0BC. You can see Greek and Roman artefacts and even older. I am not fan of museums, but consider this.

The museum is located not far from the Cathedral of the Assumption and these two attractions were easily combined with a stroll to the seashore where we dipped our feet into the Black Sea. It was a wonderful day's outing. However, the visit to the Archaeological Museum was special. The displays were arranged in an impressive 2 storey building that... More

Amazing Thracian artefacts and 7000 year old gold grave finds. Great introduction to the region of Thracia, rich in ancient, classical and byzantine history.

This place is one of the few sites of interest in Varna. The city does not have the glorious historical importance, compared to Veliko Tarnovo, but the museum is must to see.

This is a nice museum. The displays are well done. The place is larger than it looks from the front. Everything is basically on one floor. There are some interior steps; however, they had handicapped lifts, etc. The descriptions are also in English. Admission was лв10 per person; they also accepted Euros (i.e. €5 pp). We did it on a...

It was a pleasant surprise, we didn't expect it. There is some very interesting stuff, I had no idea how rich the history of the region was. Tracian history seems really interesting.
