This is a small but extremely interesting museum. There isn't much left from the Communist era in Sofia, so it's pretty unique. There is one large room with propaganda posters from Bulgaria, Russia, and China (from what we could tell) and a large yard filled with statues. The yard is dominated by a giant statue of Lenin as well as a Soviet star. All of the posters are subtitled in English as well as Bulgarian, which is helpful. Also, be sure to walk into the gift shop to watch the ~30 minute movie about communism in Bulgaria - it's very interesting and helps set the context for the museum.
Biggest tip: Go find Don B's review of this attraction and use his directions to get there. I have no idea how you would find it otherwise. His directions were perfect (except that there is no Costa Coffee any more, at least that we could see) and we would have been lost otherwise. In fact, we were at Rila Monastery the next day with one other traveler, and when we found out he was planning to visit the museum we gave him our copy of the directions.
