    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The museum is located in the building of the first Bulgarian charity hospital from 1869. This is the only one medicine museum in the Balkanies. It has 3 exposition rooms which presents the development of the medicine at these lands from 4000 years b.c. up to the communist period of the country. The first room shows archeological instruments and bones of people lived up to 1393 when is the end of the second Bulgarian Kingdom. The second room ( that I couldn’t see because the roof has been fallen as they told us) is about the period up to the Revival. This period is famous with the church and monastery medicine and also with the divination and healer’s powwow. In the third exposition room could be found equipment and instruments from the Liberation to the 40-ies of XX century. There is also a reconstruction of the old pharmacy.
    The museum is with free entrance working every day from 10.00 to 16.00 except weekends.

    Museum of History of Varna

    by tpk2 Updated Apr 25, 2008

    The Museum of History of Varna exhibits the way the town look liked back in the days, by authentic craftsmen's workshops, ateliers, shops, pictures etc. You can have your photo taken sitting behind the major’s desk.

    Although it maybe not one of the top things to see in Varna, I'd recommend the museum to someone who stays in the town for some days.

    The museum is open Tue-sun 10-17 (2007).
