The Ethnographic Museum today is located in the most famous house of Plovdiv, which was built in 1847. The house is a true example of the Bulgarian National Revival. Initially, the house belonged to Agir – famous person in the city, then there was a boarding house for girls, flour and tobacco shops, and later the Ethnographic Museum appeared.
Today, the museum's exposition displays more than 40 thousand exhibits, including musical instruments, folk costumes, jewelry, examples of traditional crafts such as winemaking, weaving, beekeeping, metalworking, etc. Here you can also observe the typical tools used to extract grape juice and distill essential oils.
