Well, first of all, the photo shown here is not of the Archeological museum! The museum is down the bulevard, near university. It has only one room with some statues, artifacts and other small things... Dust is everywhere...I was the only visitor. The did not even have light for the whole room! And I was locked after I entered ?!... More

need a guide to really do this right. we had whirlwind tour -1.5 hours. just too much to see in that short a time. little english. many names, family histories. too much for albanians, rather than foreigners !

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
