Educational Children's Museum
In the basement area of the museum building is situated the Educational Children's Museum at 60 sq. m. Inaugurated in 1985 it is the only one of that kind in Bulgaria. For the schoolchildren from 1st to 8th grade replicas of a prehistoric home, a Slavonic dug-out and a Proto-Bulgarian jurta house have been worked out together with the basic utensils usually found in them – vessels, tools, weapons, beds and others. Besides this, the visitors can get acquainted and take part in the reconstruction of many ancient trades – pottery making, fire kindling, drilling of bone, stone and wood, flour milling, weaving of rush-mats and others.
Museum specialists organize thematic lectures with picture tests in the main exhibition, as well.
