    The Ethnographic Museum is housed in a building from early 19th century .The museum gives an idea of the everyday life of the Bulgarians of old times. Its collection is more on the cultural inheritance of the local people during the 19th and the 20th centuries which includes clothes, jewelry, ritual bread,etc.

    Ethnographical Museum: Old Bulgaria!

    by crazyman2 Written Oct 7, 2009

    A fascinating place with so much to see!
    There are so many beautiful costumes from the agarian past of this region. Weddings, funerals, children's clothes, dancers costumes...
    Photos too! Ploughs, agricultural tools, stunning jewellery, fishing nets and so on... the list just goes on and on.
    Upstairs, at the very top, are rather grand two rooms which are decorated and furnished in a nineteenth century style ---somehow I was drawn back to the writings of Russian (sorry, I've never read any Bulgarian literature!) authors of the era.
    Two possible drawbacks: no photography and you would benefit from your own guide.
    Would I go back? If I were in a small group with a guide, YES!

    Varna Ethnographic Museum

    by tpk2 Written Apr 26, 2008

    Varna Ethnographic Museum is located in a National Revival style house. It exhibits artifacts, such as clothes and jewelry, from the 19th and 20th centuries. For anybody interest in the way the "normal people" lived in Bulgaria this museum is worth dropping by. Half an hour to one hour is quite enough time to see it.

    The museum is open Tue-Sun 10-17 in summer and Mon-Fri 10-17 in winter.
