Bourgas Archaeology Museum

The Bourgas Archaeology Museum is situated on Bogoridi street. It occupies one of the oldest and most beautiful buildings on the street. The collection was presented for the first time in 1989 and artifacts were collected over a period of 100 years.

Several museum halls feature exposition items from the end of the 4th and 5th centuries BC. These were found in ancient Thracian, Roman and Greek settlements along the Black Sea coast.

One of the biggest dolmens discovered near the village of Granichar can also be seen in the museum alongside stone and bone utensils.

Ritual clay figures are some of the most interesting exhibition items. These were used by Thracian priests in the 1st to 3rd centuries. The collection also includes numerous marble statuettes. Statues, painted ceramics and jewelry are some of the fine artifacts that can be explored in the museum.

Some valuable inscriptions are protected in the museum. One dates back to Thracian times and the second one is connected to khan Kroum.

A separate hall presents the artifacts discovered in the ancient settlement of Deultum. It features jewelry, coins and ceramic dishes.

The museum welcomes visitors each week day from 9 am to 5 pm.
