I loved it. I would've given it five stars if I'd been able to connect the sign outside to the inside. It stated there was an exhibit of Pagan history and its effect on current Plovdiv. I saw no mention of it in English once...More

The archeaology museum has a great collection to show more about the rich history of Plovdiv, which has been continuously inhabited for more than 8000 years. You can see the great Panagyurishte treasure here and the silver Roman mask, that was stolen in 1995 and...More

I was expecting more from this museum having been to the one in Sofia. It would have been better if it was organized with more information in different languages

Definitely worth your time! There were NO other people or groups there when we were there. The Thracean and Roman pottery,jewelry,helmets,swords,etc,etc,etc, were all displayed properly and were WONDERFUL. A high spot for us in Plovdiv!

We really enjoyed our visit to the Archeological Museum. The exhibits through the ages were fascinating. My favourite area was the Roman room. The museum was well laid out, clean and the toilets were good. No photography was allowed and it was explained to me...More

The museum is small, and could hardly be called "world class", but it does give a very good overview of local human presence since the neolithic until the medieval ages - quite interesting, if you want to put your trip in perspective ;) Personal favourite...More

One of the richest archaeological museums in the country. There are collections with prehistoric to medieval artifacts. It's modern and interesting with good explanations.

We went there encouraged by other Tripadvisor reviews, and it is definitely worth a visit - it is very small (only 5-6 rooms) but it has very interesting pieces from the Plovdiv past. Must see.
