Fodor's Expert Review Vidin Historical Museum

Vidin Museum/Gallery

This museum has a main building and two outposts. Start at the Ul. Tsar Simeon Veliki museum to get your ticket, see its collection of more than 3,000 ancient coins and learn about Bulgaria from the 19th century to the present. One outpost is the Konaka Museum (Ul. Obshtinska 2, +359–94–601–713), housed in an 18th-century Turkish police station. The exhibition here covers Bulgarian history up to the 19th century and on display are a slew of antiquities ranging from ceramic and clay pieces to gold jewelry. The Historical Museum's second outpost is the Krastata Kazarma (Ul. Knyaz Boris 26, +395–94–601–709), a two-story military barrack built in 1801 for the Ottoman army. Today it's where the museum's ethnography exhibits are held, showcasing a collection of 19th-century and early 20th-century objects such as fine filigree hairpins. Combo ticket for the museum and Baba Vida Fortress are 5 leva.
