This is not a museum, it's a house were artists are living. If you wanna go and see it, then the picture tells it all. It's not worth your time or money (you will have to take a taxi or drive to it as it's not in the center). There are so much better options.

The house is indeed unique and would make for quite a few interesting photos. I live nearby and it is still interesting to see it even though I pass by at least two times a day. However, travelers please note, this is a normal residential housing built by a group of artists that live in it. As such it is... More

This building is not some kind of attraction or museum or something, it's just an extravagant home. Still it's worth seeing if you're in the neighborhood.

This strange building resembles a snail. Many people stop and look with interest from the outside, but I have no information that could be inside.

A funny building in the outskirts of Sofia. Modern architecture used to build a multiple apartments house in snail shape. Lovely

Really interesting building said to have been built with all sustainable materials! It's worth a look if heading back to town from Boyana church. Check out the painted pavements and street lamps for eye stalks! Didn't access the interior as it appears to be in residential use -flats. Good fun. The village may also be worth a look around. Pop... More

If you are thinking of going to the mountain, you could pass by this. Nothing more, just strange, just funny. Cool for a different picture.

Waste of place and money. Building dirty and not used for anything. Nobody from the locals actually visits or likes this building. Do not visit it. Waste of time. Visit something else.

I decided to save people the pain of travelling far out of the centre to see an 'attraction' and ending up disappointed. In fact, the Snail House is no mean feat - it's an environmentally friendly PRIVATE HOME built by a businessman who wanted something different than to flaunt his money by splashing it on a palace with peacocks. It's... More
