Exhibition and museum that wont let you close to the objects except the torpedo boat( that costs 2 leva extra). Most signs in bulgarian and english. Exhibition inside is well done. Would have been fun to look closer into the helicopters in the garden.

Little surprised by the price of inside collection versus the outside collection plus the ship but suggest to buy both tickets. Inside you cannot take pics of the historical collection but outside are helicopters, cannons, boats and separate boat you can access for small fee....More

Great, unusual museum. Friendly staff and lots of exhibits inside and out immaculately presented but not much signage in English.

Only when we arrived did we find out that entrance was free on that day so it made the visit even more pleasant. The museum is in the old french consulate which is a nice building in itself.

We've visited the National Maritime Museum during Museum Night, which provided free entry and some nice events happening outside the museum (such as cannon shooting and tying knots). The vehicles outside are very impressive and also the inside of the museum shows the interesting history...More

Considering that Bulgaria isn't really a naval power or really known for its' maritime history, this museum seemed to make the most of it. I found it interesting and the texts were also in English.

My teenage boys really liked looking at the military vehicles and artifacts that are located outside, but the adults in the group appreciated the indoor artifacts as well. Good way to spend an hour or so if you're in the gardens.

If one is into maritime history, this is a very nice place to visit. Not too large with good exhibition of the last 200 maritime years of Bulgaria. Would definitely visit again.

There is an outside display of a torpedo boat and other military equipment. The internal displays were pristine and easy to follow with some great models and original materials. This was backed up by maps , photos and paintings to provide an entertaining visit.
