WE OPEN THE DOORS AGAIN !!!

In compliance with all anti-epidemic measures for closed spaces, currently in force, as of 14 May 2020 the Museum of Humor and Satire opens its doors to visitors without time zoning for different ages and during normal working hours - from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., from Tuesday to Sunday. The visits will be conducted in strict accordance with the requirement for a social distance of at least 1.5 meters and the mandatory wearing of a protective mask.

At this stage, requests for group visits are not accepted, and children's creative and educational workshops continue to be held online on the Facebook page (https://bit.ly/2TgYdt5) and on the Youtube channel (https://bit.ly/ 3bqgLgE) of the Museum.

The exhibition rooms of the Museum are waiting for their impatient visitors! And no matter how much the situation does not allow the unfolding of the Gabrovo carnival along the streets of the city, there will still be surprises. Let this time the eyes be raised to the terraces of the Gabrovo citizens!

Dear artists, friends, fellow citizens, colleagues,
Dear children,

For the first time in its 48-year history the House of Humor and Satire will celebrate its birthday online. Unfortunately, its doors will remain closed and the exhibition rooms empty for the usual crowds of visitors and guests. Sad! But think, hasn’t each of us had at least one birthday in our lives without guests, cake and gifts?

It is so now. The time of emergency calls on us to be humble and disciplined. Let's stay home and hope the coronavirus will someday get tired raging around. And then, then we will celebrate physically together - in new exhibitions, with colorful children's workshops, presentations of bestsellers and film screenings.

For now, though, we have to keep your spirits up on the Museum's Facebook page, as well as the https://bit.ly/2QeolmA Facebook group, where we kindly invite you to share your funny stories, pictures, memes and comments. What a unique chance to celebrate both together and at no cost at all!
