National Art Gallery - Review
This is Bulgaria’s most important collection of art. It begins right from the 4th century, with many religious icons, and continues on to the Age of Bulgarian Revival in the 18th and 19th centuries. There’s also a large contemporary and modern art collection of paintings, graphics, and sculptures. The masterpieces of some of Bulgaria’s greatest artists - Vladimir Dimitrov – Maystora (The Master), Zlatyu Boyadzhiev, Sirak Skitnik, Nikola Raynov – are some of the most popular items in the museum. Also check out the library, which has about 6500 issues on art.

National Art Gallery, Sofia Reviews
Bulgarian art. Interesting. The international art is in another gallery.
The museum houses a large collection of modern/contemporary Bulgarian art. The building was formally a Royal palace. If you like this style of art you will enjoy the museum (it's not really my thing).
Loved the standing and the temporary exhibitions. Good souvenir shop for those who interested. Definitely worth a visit.
This is an interesting place. I really like classical work upstairs. The down side is its size which is very small for a national gallery.
We visited the part dedicated to the Etnographic museum. Only the first floor was open and on the second floor there was martenitsa exhibition and workshop. The staff was kind and helped us to prepare some martenitsa ourselves. Really enjoyed the time there. The etnographic exposition was not very rich but authentic. One can feel the history and rich culture behind each item displayed.
