You will be amazed to understand how many cultures have been there, what they have left as traces. The collection of artifacts also tells the story well.... More

We spend quite a long time in the kids area of the museum and it was really very interesting : with puzzels, ancient costumes and the way to recreate 5-6 ancient rooms with little furniture. Very interesting colleaction of coins. Kids had a blast

If you are ever in the city of Kyustendil visit this excellent museum about the history of the Kyustendil region. It is located opposite the big Hotel Velbush and close to the bus station.

The museum was filled with many interesting artifacts and information about ancient civilizations that you have not learned in school! They also have a very nice coin collection and other very unique and... More

This small museum is located close to the train station. Though it might be small it is very professional and is quite informative. The descriptions are in English as well as Bulgarian. The docent when I visited didn’t speak English, but was very fluent in Spanish. Most of the items are small, and go from prehistoric to the present time.... More
