The idea for the National History Museum to be moved from Boyana residence into the Central Department Store (Tzum) is about to be realized.

The offer came from the director of the museum, Bozhidar Dimitrov, 3 years ago. According to his words, the National History Museum is one of the most visited in Sofia and will attract much more tourists if its location is in the central part of the capital.

Until now, the museum has been visited in Boyana residence, but its distance from the center and the lack of direct transport, make it difficult to visit.

The new location of the National History Museum is part of the project “Bulgarian Louvre”. The opening ceremony of the project was held by the Minister of Culture Vezdhi Rashidov. It is expected that three more museums will be opened in this historical part of the city.

The realization of the project will take 10 months and the investments exceed 27 million leva.
