this place is awesome. if you grew up in the eastern european block, the place will bring back many memories. toys, household stuff, cars etc. all is well prepped and maintained, cars even have a mirror underneath so you can see technology and condition.

A great museum with the exhibits set out in an interesting way. The cars are in impeccable condition and there are lots of them. There are also many toys / home appliances and lots of random
objects from the era 1944 - 1989 which are interesting. Also went to the waxwork museum at the same place. It was 12 Lev to go into the Retro Museum and 12 Lev to see the waxworks or a discounted 18 Lev to get a ticket for both. I’m not sure that it’s worth going into the waxworks museum on its own as it’s only small and some of them (Julia Roberts and Richard Gere to name a couple) were less than convincing, but it was worth an extra 6 Lev to go in there. The museum is in the Grand Mall Varna so it’s easy to find.

The place is great. Everything is shiny and polished - brings great memories to the elders of the family. The atmosphere is exactly like my childhood.

Excellent museum the quality of the exhibits is remarkable ,. The cars and bikes look better than new . Cheap entry price when I was there two years ago it was quiet less.than 10 people deserves to be more popular . Located.in the main shopping mall on a level of the parking garage it's a good concept that would work in other locations .

The museum is located in Grand Mall in Varna, so you can make a shopping on the way. There are rwo museums - Retro and Wax museum, if you go for both, you get a discount.
We only went to the Retro museum, had a great time.
Many exhibition items from the Communism Era, well arranged in relatively small place. The exhibition is very exciting, especially for the people who lived in communistic country. The atmosphere is accomplished by music from that time.
Definitely worth a visit, if you're in Varna.

I was nicely surprised from the large collection of all varieties of different items. From the bars of soaps, vacuum cleaners and radios to cars as “Chaika”. Everything from 1944 to 1989 years (the communist time). Ive got a nostalgic flash back. Really enjoyed. For the kids-I don’t think they understand anything. They’re not familiar with anything in the exibition. But next to it, it’s the wax figures museum (about 65 different figures like Messi, Ariana Grande, Todor Zivkov, etc. Separate tickets for both museums. Discount for kids/students/pensioners. Adult tickets less than 10$. Cards are acceptable.

It was a very interesting look into the past in soviet Bulgaria. Actually it looked very similar to our own history and the only difference was names and makes of cars. But great to see and historically valuable

Located on the 1st floor in Grand Mall Varna. It takes about 60-90 minute to visit it.The exhibits items are in very good condition.

A lot of products from communist period , most of them from Bulgaria but also from other country's from Eastern bloc. A lot of cars and motorcycles from USSR/URSS, East Germany,Poland etc.

Also products from West that were imported during that period :cigarettes,coffe etc.
