Closed for renovation?

When you walk in, it is good to go to the second floor of the Museum and to see and learn about this important chapter in Kosovo's struggle for independence. Conclusion: For FREEDOM is worth fighting!

We visited here and although it was a somber and sad experience it is a must to see to understand what the people went through ...well maintained

I visited the Kosovo museum on the 27th March 2015. The doors were wide open and there were lots of renovations going on with tradespeople walking around. The bottom floor was empty and I was surprised I could just stroll inside. There were no signs in English explaining anything so I assumed it's closed for renovation but not sure for... More

I happen to visit on a day when a huge protest was going on in the city and as such practically had the museum to myself. It is a place to learn a lot about the atrocities that took place here during Kosovo's war for independence which in retrospect is very recent history. Seeing some of the exhibits was sad... More

This "museum" is essentially a pro-NATO Kosovan war showcase; there is nothing else to it. If you have an issue with that, best not to go. However, if you take it for what it is, it's great although fairly terrifying. It's full of interesting displays (albeit in little English) and the military hardware it's definitely worth checking out to get... More

Come to the second floor of the National Museum and learn about this important chapter in Kosovo's struggle for independence. Good exhibits including newspaper front pages (interesting to see/remember what else was making headlines during this time). We forget what it's like to fight for freedom and the resulting casualties.

A banner on the museum features a picture of an ancient statue of a goddess. When you enter the lower floor there is very little to see other than humble wooden objects and instruments with no explanations in English. There are many empty glass cases. When I asked one of the many staff (all with simply nothing to do) where... More

The museum focuses almost exclusively on the independence war and has little room for anything else. In itself quite interesting, but there is more to Kosovo than the recent conflict. Entry was free.

We visited the museum in September. I'm not sure if the museum was undergoing an upgrade or change in exhibition, but it seemed to be lacking something. All the exhibit tags were in Albanian, with no other language available. The historical monuments, some of which were very beautiful, were poorly preserved and displayed.

It is not worth a visit. It seems that they started to charge €2 for admission and it is mostly about the war explained in Albanian language.
