We spent few hours at the museum this summer. Although it's not a huge museum they have interesting expositions. The lady who was in charge of the museum was very nice and told us some peculiar facts about the history of Apolonia. Recommend to take a look at the second floor where you can find a ancient "vampire" skeleton

Local archeological museum with all periods of this area covered. Some labels are in English as well as Bulgarian, but not a lot of written information in general. I was the only person there and some areas were not open. Has elevator for second floor access.

In the old town, nearby an open-air auditorium at Han Krum square, you’ll find the museum. The style is the typical one from the socialist times, trying to mix a brutalist modernism with the vernacular architecture of the place.

The fee is not expensive and there isn’t any charge for taking pictures of the exhibition.

Inside you will find many artefacts, mostly dating to the Greek times when the city was founded. It is not a big exhibition space but is well organized and the collection presented is good enough to be worth of a visit.

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.

Loads of great objects on display that can take you through the area's rich archaeological past. Fun for any history buff and even for people who are not so keen on history. They occasionally have classical concerts there which are quite great - try and catch one during the Apollonia festival late August and early September.

That's one of the richest local museums I've visited in Bulgaria. Yes, it still has the feel of communist architecture due to the outlook of the building, but try to ignore that and give it a try.

It's only a few lev to get into the museum but an interesting distraction for an hour or two. Recently renovated and very old, third century.
