The National Museum of History in Sofia is Bulgaria's largest museum. It was founded on 5 May 1973. A new representative exhibition was opened in the building of the Court of Justice on 2 March 1984, to commemorate the 13th centenary of the Bulgarian state.
In 2000, the museum was moved to the former primary residence of the dictator and last communist leader Todor Zhivkov at Boyana, and currently contains over 650,000 objects connected to archaeology, fine arts, history and ethnography, although only 10% of them are permanently exhibited. The exhibits cover an enormous time span, from the Neolithic to the present day.
Set against the backdrop of the towering Mount Vitosha and offering a panoramic view of Sofia, the National Museum of History captivates visitors even before they enter the grand building.
