“History of Bulgaria”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

The exponats were really nice and the museum has a lot of them.
The building gives you a great insight in the military history of bulgaria and you learn a lot.
Most of the signs are in Bulgarian and English.

“One of the better museums in Bulgaria”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

Veryinteresting museum that with funding could be really nice. The static displays were good but could use some maintenance before they rust away. History wise the museum focused heavily on the overthrow of the Ottoman empire and glossed over Bulgaria's willing partnership with the Nazis and the Communists.

“never fails to amaize me”
Reviewed December 21, 2011

There is so much to see, so much to learn. Please hire a guide, it will be well worth it. I can spend hours listening about the stories behind the tombstones, the sculls, the treasures, the gold, the alphabets, the ceramics..
I have visited the museum three times and every time I learn and discover new things. It is magnificent! Do not be put off by the name of this museum, it is not military
