Through more than 650,000 artifacts – Thracian gold and silver, pottery, icons, art & jewelry, mosaics – it tells the story of the European civilization from the dawn of times to the modernity.

It's not the best museum I have been to but worth a visit for the history of the Sofia and Bulgaria. I did like the video projections on the walls and the old carriage...

This is a wonderful museum with a great collection of exhibits. There are some good ethnological displays and currently there is a colourful art exhibit that combines modern interpretations of icon with a collection of original ones. The building itself is interesting and very attractive.
The museum sells entrance tickets also a combined ticket for Boyana Church. I took a taxi and would advise going here first as the staff do speak a little English.

You can see the famous pieces of Thracian gold treasures and to learn a lot of the rich history of Bulgarian people during many centuries. Do not hesitate to take a guide, they speak different languages and are simply excellent.
