Over 500 children from all Razgrad schools and high schools were guests of the Regional History Museum on the occasion of the International Museum Day.

With undisguised curiosity, they learned about the centuries-old history of ancient Abritus and enjoyed interactive activities. With maps in hand, the children made guided tours of the cultural landmarks in the Archaeological Reserve. The young archaeologists looked through binoculars, searched for “treasures” with a metal detector, cleaned and restored the “discovered” artifacts.

In a steady stream, the girls and boys toured the museum’s permanent exhibition and then learned interesting facts about the Roman Empire with modern ways of presenting them in the interactive museum.

For the second year in a row, on two consecutive days, children and adults were received in the museum houses with a special program on the occasion of the International Museum Day.

The ethnographic house hosted talents who dramatized Bulgarian folk tales, participated in quizzes, dismantled the exhibition, and finally supported themselves with a fragrant and delicious pie.

The Ananie Yavashov House Museum welcomed students and those wishing to learn more details about the life and work of the prominent archaeologist, botanist, chemist, academician, founder of the museum in Razgrad.

It was also lively in the house of Nikola Ikonomov – Zheravnenets and Stanka Nikolitsa-Spaso-Elenina – the first Bulgarian woman to publish her poem.

“Our idea is for visitors to take on the role of researchers, ethnographers, curators, fundraisers, guides,” said Tanya Todorova, director of the Regional History Museum. “It is good that the initiative arouses interest among children as well. We want them to get to know the cultural heritage and the historical past of the homeland in an accessible way, as well as to promote the professions of museum specialists, “she added.

The finale of the program in Razgrad for the International Museum Day is in the house “Ananie Yavashov” with the award ceremony of the winners of the award in the name of Acad. Ananie Yavashov and an exhibition of finds from the flint workshop and necropolis in the village of Kamenovo.
