Nice museum, but small and really hot and humid inside. Got a good discount for student (from 6 leva to 2 leva)

This is a great location for a symphonie music concert. The acustics is good and the Bulgarian baritone with a great voice gave a fantastic concert on Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff. You had to pay a fee, but it was nominal.

The museum is located in a lovely Bulgarian National Revival home--so you get to see the house as well as the collection of clothing, tools, pottery and furniture. The exhibits are informative and well done, some done in cooperation with National Geographic. Note: the labels...More

Museum is worth a visit, especially if you want to get more information about common life in Bulgaria in the past. I liked the museum,although you do not get many information. What I did not like,was unfriendly staff (lady-saler of entrance tickets).

There are three reasons to visit this place. First the beautiful architecture of the building itself, second the typical interior decoration of a wealthy 19th century Plovdiv merchant house and third the ethnographic museum proper. After passing a gate one comes into a green yard...More
