An amazing collection of Bulgarian battle tanks and jets! From T34s, T72s, Scud throwers, to Mil Mi 24 helicopter, Soukhoïs and Migs...

My experience, Explo description: 

For all the people interested in military history, this is a place to go in Bulgaria.

The museum is divided in 2 parts : in the halls of exhibits, you can check out weaponry and uniforms from the Bulgarian army. This part of the museum brings you also an interesting overview of the Bulgarian military history and the different wars the country participated to.

The second part of the museum is the park where dozens of military hardware are stored.

For those interested in WW2, note the collection of German battle tanks, including PzIII and Stugs...

My personal recommendations: 

You can take pictures in the park, but if so you need to pay 5Lv.

How getting there: 

Tram 20 from centre. By feet 3.5km (SE) from Aleksandur Nevski church : Shipka street, then Han Omurtag street. The museum is at the crossroad with Cherkovna street.

Useful information: 
Open hours: 

Wed-Sun 9am-5pm

Visit duration: 

3h

Entry fees:

Update from the forum

The Bulgaria Army Museum moved about 5 yrs. ago across town to a very nice new location. The exhibits are excellent both outside & inside the museum itself. You will have to contact a Bulgarian tourist agency to locate the location for you as even taxi drives don't have a clue of how to get there. But it is REALLY worth a visit!
