Ethnographic Institute With MuseumCurrently Closed
The museum is famous for its collection of pastoral woodcarving from the 19th and 20th centuries. Most of these are household items, but you’ll also find musical instruments, furniture and decoratives. There is a lovely embroidery collection with a significant folkloric influence. Most of the museum focuses on describing Bulgarian traditional life, during weekdays and weekends.
The building in which the museum is housed used to be a Royal Palace, so don’t foreget to check out the architecture. It’s best to take the guided tour if you want to get the most out of the museum. And yes, you get tours in English.
