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

Jou just have to go here is you are in Tirana. Very nice palce to visit, with a lot of history to reveal. There is a fee entrance for about 1 euro/ person and 0,5 euro if you are a student or child.

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.

We found the archaeological museum with the help of a student at the polytechnic branch of the university. She persuaded the receptionist to open the museum for us, and then we met the director, who kindly talked with us briefly before we moved on to the historical museum. The collection on dispay is small, but nicely done, with some terrific... More

Excellent value for money at 100 leke per person entry fee. Wonderful mosaics and Roman statues. Also an awful lot about Albanian history, modern and ancient. However, more little bits of information written in English would have been really helpful for the non Albanian speaking person.
