Varna Archaeological Museum, Varna Reviews

  • Quite small for the reputation Bulgarians claim. Second floor is dedicated to religious iconography. 😣 A few items scattered throughout worth seeing but nothing worth standing in line for. It would be better if they closed a few smaller museums in the region and consolidated items. Prices are minimal. You might spend 1-2 hours there. Keep your eye out for a schedule of summer jazz concerts in the courtyard.

  • Detailed exhibits in fantastic condition. Better than comparable museums in other places. Great examples of ancient craftsmanship.

  • Beautiful artefacts of civilizations long gone. These kind of history lessons are needed from time to time. But I still can't imagine how people lived 6000 years ago.

  • Beautiful and extremely rich collections. The cases and auxiliary materials are new and well made, the staff helpful although a bit cold (at the end of the workday, that is excusable). The "Dordrecht" exhibition was a very pleasant surprise. The building, though, is old and badly in need of repairs and upgrade.

  • Wow.A nice place ..preserved history, ancient spirit feeling around. See the oldest jewelry on earth ...just leap back in time. !
