For a new museum with interesting and stunning artefacts it was befuddling. Signage is in Bulgarian obviously but also a little French and a smattering of English. It is all very low down so for an able bodied or elderly person it is difficult to...More

Small museum on two floors displaying ancient exhibits from Sozopol. The exhibits rarely had English notes so limited ability to get the most out of the exhibits which was a shame. It is ok for a short visit as we had to catch the ferry...More

We were disappointed as there were not much information about the artifacts in English, which would have made it more enjoyable for us.

If you have any interest in history, archaeology etc., this museum is well worth a visit. It is quite small but more than you would expect for such a small city.

Town, shops and market ok. Museum was small and only geared up for French tourists and locals. Which means after you’ve seen one piece of ceramic you’ve seen it all. Not recommended.
