It seems like this museum hasn't been tended to in years. Even though I don't speak Albanian, I was able to follow the displays. It seems there is a lot of overlap with the items in the National History museum

Actually 4 * if you are into the very early ears and it is laid out in a rather old fashioned way. Lots of good exhibits but not are labelled in English.

I would suggest everyone stop by this museum. Not because they have amazing displays but because it is a window into wonderful Albania where the people are so proud of their heritage and struggling to understand how to show it off. There were three people working at the front desk. After we bought our tickets one woman had to find... More

Just to be clear: this review is for the Archaeological Museum on Mother Teresa Square (Sheshi Nene Tereza) and is NOT the National Museum on Skanderbeg Square. There are reviews for both museums in this listing. I was disappointed in this museum. The admission price is on the high side (300 Lek for adults) and the museum doesn't seem to... More

This is the place to go if you are interested in Albanian history ranging from Illyrian, through the communist era to present day. The museum is well situated in the center of Tirana and well maintained. The displays of material objects and photos are clearly marked in English and could use more lighting. The chronological order of Albanian history is... More

I am not an archeological connoisseur, but i didn't find the visit at this museum very exciting, although is very big, i have never felt thrilled about anything there. A lot of "war" rests, clothes of poor people killed by the communism, and some interesting pieces from ancient times.
