This is a well maintained museum, and although not large it has some great exhibits, including a good icon gallery downstairs. Good written explanations in both Bulgarian and English. Worth a visit if you are even slightly interested in history.

This is a wonderful little museum explaining the long history of Nessebar. It is well laid-out and there are clear explanations in English as well as Bulgarian.
