Abstract: The article presents the process of creating the newest in-situ museum in Bulgaria – the bishop's basilica in Plovdiv. The stages of the discovery of the object and the course of its socialization are traced in the context of some actual museological concepts. The new museum is compared with other similar models and the first steps of its activity are shown. The idea of introducing the term "hybrid museum" was launched as a summary of the successful start of the new cultural topos in Plovdiv.
