A general view of the museum and the belonging yard
In one of the buildings of the Natural science museum in Malko Tarnovo town is situated a pictorial natural scientific collection. The wealth of the Natural Park “Strandzha” is presented through a modern interactive way. It is the largest protected territory in our country.
Here, every natural–lover can enter in the hollow of an ancient tree, formed like a telephone box, where through a special phone can hear the voices of 43 birds, lived within the bounds of Strandzha Mountain.
Particularly interesting and picturesque is a room painted with beautiful natural drawings of great number of animals. You can join an unusual “Language course”. By pushing 5 buttons you can hear the voices of an owl, hoopoe, tree-frog, wild-boar and a wolf. The most entertaining is the possibility to record and hear your own reproduction of these sounds. If you want to evaluate your knowledge and to estimate whether you want to recognize the different types of trees in Strandzha, the specially made for this purpose panels with arranged wood blocks on it will help you.
In the next entirely dark small room, you can hear the voices of all night inhabitants of the forest. The most interesting for the kids are the two wooden puzzles that present the map of the Natural Park “Strandzha” - the chain food of the animals and a chest with natural treasures – herbs, which could be recognized through their aromas. In the film-showing room you can watch interesting video films for Strandzha Mountain.
In addition to the natural scientific collection, there is an animator, who can lead lectures in several languages.
