From the outside, the museum is very interesting, although relatively small. Unfortunately we could not enter, but a lot of military equipment was visible. I think they have a big exhibition of sea mines.

With a collection of small naval boats and two helicopters this museum tells some of the story of Bulgaria's naval history. Inside exhibits include dioramas and naval uniforms.

It turned out that Bulgaria have a rich history when it comes to seacraft. I was amazed by the full sized vessels equipment and gear preserved and gathered right next to the center. For me it was very interesting to be able to touch and get inside the exhibits. I strongly suggest to check it out if as it is close to lots of other attractions and it just haves tons of things to see.

The museum is a bit all over the place... but in an understandable way, I suppose. The history of Bulgaria means there's lots to say about its maritime past but there's not always been continuity - most recently its Soviet rule. The museum picks its way around all this quite diplomatically while adding a sense drama. It's good fun - getting into a real submarine! - but it's lacking a coherent narrative. Don't let that put you off - it's fun and cheap and a good way to pass an hour.

The museum is small but packed with naval history. The museum has a very nice layout. The upper floors are hot but there is some air conditioning :) I think everyone can find something interesting for himself. And the best part was that one can go inside the torpedo boat and play "a marine" :) And yes you can take pictures.
