Museum displays clothing, tools, furniture and everyday objects. Descriptions are in English too. I saw everything in 60 minutes. Museum is housed in a beautiful wooden Hungarian house.

When you are climbing on the Plovdiv historical hill, visiting very interesting historical places it is really worth to visit Etnographic museum and to learn about bulgarian way of living.
