Ethnographic Museum reviews
As per our tour guide this was a house of a famous goldsmith once upon a time. Now it's a nice wooden house with ethnographic items - clothes, tools, furniture...from the past centuries.

A very complete museum about the people of Bulgaria with a lot of art pieces and objects from the daily life of the locals. The only problem was the lights which made the pictures hard to take. The price of the tickets were very low and they had reductions for families and students. This is a must-see in this city and I greatly recommend visiting this amazing place.
One of the most beautiful traditional buildings in Bulgaria. Very interesting and nicely artifacts. It's must to visit it if you're in Plovdiv!!!
