This is an ideal place to find out about the historic military struggle for Bulgaria to achieve its identity - Fantastic uniforms and medals - armaments. Outside exhibits displaying Tanks, planes and Rockets .

Loads of stuff in here friendly staff
my partner loved all the Soviet planes and tanks outside but we don't have any photos due to a notice saying no photos outside at this time which was a shame.
You can get up real close to the planes ,and tanks outside which is great to see the real roughness of those great machines.
Loads of things to see inside Bulgaria has a great history to show with TV monitors in English so you can understand what is on show.
Gift shop could have done with some postcards so we could show people the things in the museum ,and more model aircraft of the era on display.
Well worth a visit shame about the photos wish the museum could send me some

Very educational museum, runs through two thousand plus years of history. I've studied history all my life, and retired from the military and learned a great deal during the visit. The outside displays are increadble and the four floors of indoor displays are as well. Get used to the staff following you though they are ever vilgilent in protecting their heiratage. I walked two miles to see the display I'd do it again.

This museum is rather far from downtown and not easy to find; Yet it definitely deserves a visit because you will be able to see an amazing collection of engines, weapons and other warfare from the soviet times. Impressive
