Learn about Bulgaria at the National Museum of History

The National Museum of History is the largest museum in Sofia, and preserves more than 650,000 items related to fine arts, history, ethnography and archaeology. Permanent exhibits show off furniture, traditional costumes, weapons, flags and a collection of clocks, as well as a space exhibit that boasts various space suits, instruments and space food developed for Bulgarian cosmonauts.
