Very uninteresting expositions
Sep 2020
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

Nice artifacts, not much info
Oct 2019
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.

I recommend about 2 hours for most visitors, maybe 4 for historians and archaeologists. All time periods are covered for the surrounding region and they have good contacts with the local archaeologists. A bit more artifact signs in English might be useful for the growing number of visitors.

Some good Old stuff, mostly vases and dishes. There are also descriptions but only in Bulgarian and Greek. Why there are no descriptions in English?
God bless Google translate.
I expected a little bit more

No information about the artifacts
Jun 2019 • Couples
I wouldn’t venture to call this a museum, as that would imply that some information is communicated about the artifacts. Rather it’s a storage place for a collection of interesting pieces, but without the context and story, it’s a waste and a pity. The information, when it is provided, is extremely sparse and is in Bulgarian and French. Even if you do speak these languages, the lack of history is sad. This is a shame, since this ‘museum’ could and should be a major attraction in Sozopol. My advice: offer a summer internship and get a student (or four) to research and write descriptions of the artifacts, in say: Bulgarian, English and French. Share the beautiful history and culture of Bulgaria with visitors!

Lovely artefacts but difficult to understand
Oct 2018 • Couples
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 read. I suggest put signage at the top of the vitrines or on the walls. The numbering of objects is also either absent or difficult to work out. There’s an amazing huge amphora in the hall with a terracotta pipe like a drain running into the neck of it. I’ve never seen that before but could not work out what it was used for. Stunning bronze of Pan. Wonderful Greek vases too.

Limited appeal
Aug 2018 • Couples
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 back to Nessebar but you would struggle to spend more than an hour and a half.

okay

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

Rainy day option
Sep 2018 • Couples
We opted to visit here when the weather started to change half-way through our holiday.

As there have been excavations more recently by a combined bulgaria and french team, some boards are written in French but nothing really in english making it more difficult if as a tourist you like to read the information as well as see the items.

Ceramic ware and headstones etc from the Greek period from burial sites (necropolis). A few types that I hadn't seen before.

Definitely a visit for a rainy day when you are wondering what to do rather than a must do on a sunny day.
