The National History Museum has been awarded an award for promoting our cultural heritage for the traveling exhibition "The First Rulers of Europe"

The award from the 30th anniversary edition of the Annual "Wonders of Bulgaria" awards of the city of Standart is another proof of the high professionalism and consistent policy for the protection, preservation and promotion of our cultural heritage, led by Assoc. Dr. Bonni Petrunova, Director of the largest museum institution in the country and its team, in the person of Chief Assistant Dr. Petranka Nedelcheva - coordinator and curator of the Bulgarian participation in the traveling exhibition "The First Rulers of Europe".

The first stop of the traveling exhibition, part of the "First Rulers of Europe" project initiated by the Field Museum in Chicago, is the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World in New York, USA, under the title "Ritual and Memory: The Ancient Balkans and Beyond".
The exhibit features cultural assets from eleven countries of the Old Continent and will be open to visitors until February 19, 2023 before traveling to Chicago. The project "The First Rulers of Europe" is the first large-scale collaboration of its kind between North America and South-Eastern Europe, and three Bulgarian museums occupy a central place in it.
The New York exhibition with some of its most valuable exhibits includes the National History Museum in Sofia and the Regional History Museum in Ruse, which will introduce the American public to some of their most enigmatic treasures.
