The Art Museum “Georgi Velchev” has been existing since 1991 when it was donated to the city by the relatives of the artist – one of the best masters of sea scapes in Bulgaria. The museum was renovated in 1995 and opened with a collection of 70 works by Georgi Velchev (1891-1955).

More than 240 paintings of the artist are stored in the museum. The exhibition area is divided into two parts: two rooms are for the permanent exposition and three rooms for the temporary exhibitions, which traditionally are opened on the 9th day of every month.
