The Etar Architectural-Ethnographic Complex is the first open-air museum and a neighbourhood of Gabrovo (8 km south of its center) in northern Bulgaria. It is located on the northern edge of the Bulgarka Nature Park, between the park and the city of Gabrovo. It was established on September 7th, 1964.

The museum territory covers an area of 7 ha and comprises 50 sites - water technical equipment, houses with craftsman's workshops, places with social importance. The aim of the museum display is showing the architecture, the life style and the economic past of Gabrovo region during the Revival period - the second half of 18 and the 19 centuries. More than 26 main crafts were developed in the town and the goods were sold in different parts of the country and in the region - Bucharest, Vienna, Marseille, Anatolia and other. The first secular New Bulgarian school was opened in 1835. During the 30-ies of the 19th century under the favourable economic and political changes in the Ottoman empire Gabrovo grew as an important economic, educational and commercial center in the country. The Ethnographic museum Etar was build and organazed by means of three methods; on site restoration; on site preservation; transportation of originals and restoration of buildings. The living premises and the workshops are detached in the so called "craftsmen's street". Sixteen architectural patterns of Gabrovo district depict the talent and skill of the Renaissance builders.
