Burgas Archeological Museum

Aleko Bogoridi Boulevard 21, Burgas

Archaeological Museum (Bulgarian: Археологически музей) is the oldest museum in Burgas, preserving the cultural and historical heritage of some of the most ancient towns in the present Bulgarian territory - Sozopol (Apollonia), Nessebar (Messambria), Pomorie (Anhialo) and others. Today the Archaeological museum is one of the four expositions in Regional historical museum Burgas. The museum was established in 1912 as a private museum of the Debelt Archaeological Society. The exposition presents collections of archaeological findings related to ancient Thrace, the Greek colonies along the Black Sea coast and the time of the Roman Empire. In the halls of the museum can be seen exhibits found in archaeological research in the entire Burgas region. Here is the earliest statue ever found on the Bulgarian lands and one of the most complete collections of pre-monetary forms in the country and on the Balkans.

    Very well prrsented exhibition. It gives an amazing timeline of history along the Black Sea from the Stone Age. Definitely worth an hour or more. The Golden Treasure display is fantastic. We loved It.

    Very nice museum, small and very well arranged. We spent there one hour reading and day dreaming about the past ages. The exposition of gold treasures is also a must to see.

    We loved this museum. As you move through the museum it tells a story of the Eastern Balkans starting from the copper age through the middle ages. There are many artifacts to go along with the story. The displays are all well documented in Bulgarian and in English. We thought that the collection of coins that were minted in the area was probably the highlight. Some are in amazingly good condition. We even learned something new about amphoras, which is hard to believe. Plan to spend about an hour if you need through all the descriptions.

    Не большая но хорошая экспозиция. Монеты – стрелы, лодки, керамика... Есть кое что от римского наследства. Персонал говорит по русски. С наружи слева стоят старые дольмены-гробницы фракийцев. Есть копии золотого наследства фракийцев. На входе сувенирка(подвески и монетки) копии из етники протобулгар.
