    Although the National Museum of Natural History is not among the best-maintained museums in Bulgaria, a visit to it is not a complete waste of time. Unlike the National Museum of History, the exhibits here are arranged like in a textbook of biology and each of them has a reference plate. The different species and groups are segmented by different signs and the history of the origin of each family is clearly presented to the average person, through separate plates. In fact, the National Museum of Natural History is not a representative of an encyclopaedia of biodiversity in the world and in Bulgaria, but it provides its visitors with a lot more information. This is one of the few Bulgarian museums, the exhibits of which have been preserved and protected from the destruction of the four wars of the last century. The 125 years of history of the National Museum of Natural History speaks for itself that it would be able to preserve its unique exhibits for the future generations despite the negligent attitude of the employees towards the exhibits and the indifference of the Bulgarian state to the natural sciences and their promotion.
