Historical Museum, town of Malko Tarnovo

The historical museum of Malko Tarnovo presents six expositions – archaeological monuments found in the last decades in the sites around and in the town are arranged in the first one. The epitaph monuments are arranged in a lapidarium in the museum yard. Icon painting is presented in an separate exposition of models made by Strandzha artists. An appointment with Strandzha nature is arranged in the Natural Collection. There are multiple attractions here – a telephone box for “talking” with birds, education in an unusual “language course” and the “Dark room”, in which you can feel the Strandzha night forest. The exposition entitled “Non-material Cultural Inheritance of Strandzha” represents fire-dancing, the White Mummer (a custom which is only observed in the region of Strandzha), the Strandzha chapels and saints which have been specially honored and celebrated since ancient times. Here you can get acquainted with the more contemporary history of the region through the preserved interesting legends, haidouk stories and biographies of great revolutionaries. A carpet-weaving workshop functions at the Historical Museum of Malko Tarnovo, where demonstrations of weaving on an authentic loom are presented. In the ethnographic museum one can see authentic articles and clothes.
