Museum of Socialist Art, Sofia
The museum was established in 2011. It was founded alongside the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Museum of Ancient Sofia and the National Museum Complex. The Museum of Socialist Art's role was to showcase art that was created during the communist era and to restore those monuments that were dismantled. The exhibits came from public spaces as well as private individuals who donated their own found and crafted items that had been hidden since the fall of communism in the country.
Visitors to the museum can find a souvenir kiosk where they can purchase communist-era memorabilia, t-shirt and postcards. The museum is open from Tuesday through Sunday from 10 AM to 6 PM.
