On the holiday of September 17, the Sofia History Museum, which is housed in the building of the former Central Mineral Bath, opens its doors. Residents and guests of the city will be able to view the permanent exhibition between 10 a.m. and 22 p.m. free of charge.
Normal business hours will be Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 18 p.m.
The ticket to the museum for people over 18 years old will be BGN 6, and for children up to 7 years old, pensioners and people with disabilities it will be free, for children from 7 to 18 years old, schoolchildren and students - BGN 2, and a family ticket - BGN 10 .
Every Thursday visits will be free.
"The entire reconstruction of the part of the building of the Sofia mineral bath, worth about BGN 5 million, is financed by OP "Regional Development". I think that the museum is interesting - a combination of cultural and historical heritage and modernity. In addition to old exhibits - from antiquity and the Middle Ages, as well as from the recent history of Sofia, we also have modern installations that tell about this history. In each hall there is a film that shows footage that many Sofia residents have not seen. There is also a hall for training the youngest, so that schools and kindergartens can hold their classes here," explained the capital's mayor, Yordanka Fandakova.
