National History Museum

     The National History Museum in Sofia is Bulgaria's largest museum. It was established on the 5th of May 1973. On the 2nd of March 1984, the new representative exhibition was opened in the building of the Court of Justice on the occasion of the 1300-th anniversary of the Bulgarian State. In 2000, the Museum shifted to a new location – "Home 1" in the former Boyana Residence, where on the 10th November 1989 the last communist leader was removed from power.
     The National History Museum contains more than 650 000 exhibits and is one of the largest history museums on the Balkans. The aim of the museum is to provide a comprehensive view on Bulgarian history from prehistory to present, in as broad in European context as possible.
