Museum of History, Harmanli

Harmanli in Haskovo, Bulgaria
The idea of creating an institution involved in collecting, studying, preserving and promoting historical artefacts was born in the local cultural community centre in the late 1950s. The first museum collection was put on display on January 18, 1968. Initially, it was arranged in the first school building in the town dating back to 1835. In 2002, it was transformed into a historical museum proper. It has 350 sq.m. of exhibition space, there are lots of storage facilities, administrative offices and a library room with more than 1,000 volumes of literature. The museum is divided into three departments - archaeology, ethnography and modern and most recent history.


The building in which the museum is housed today was built after 1884 on a project by Italian architect Pietro Montani.
