American tourists may wonder why there is both a Bill Clinton Boulevard and a George Bush one as well but are likely not well informed on the Kossovo - Serbian war and its aftermath. The 2nd floor museum provides the opportunity to become informed on some of the events associated with the "ethnic cleansing" and murders of many of those... More

the museum isn't in english but the photos give you a huge idea of what it was like back then. There are also new paper clippings that are in english so they are worth a read. I enjoyed getting an insight eve if it was just a little one.

Well, contrary to what others have said, when I walked in on this Sunday morning, a man at the front gate walked in with me, tried to interest me in two little books, and charged me 2 euros. He kept the change in his pocket.... Oh well, only 2 euros. As others have said, at the moment there isn't much... More

The museum is just as described by other reviewers. It's free - that's a plus. There isn't much to see, other than some memorabilia from the war times and plenty of New York Times articles hanging on the walls. At least these were entertaining to read. Other magazine articles (including ones in German) were also on display. Most of the... More

There are three floors to this museum. The ground floor is supposed to be an exhibition/gallery. However, it is completely empty. The first floor is under construction. The second floor is basically a NATO funded display, none of which is in English, which is pretty much just propaganda praising NATO and various politicians. There are some interesting newspaper articles from... More

The entrance hall was hosting a Istanbul photographs exhibition and 1. floor had demonstratons from the late history about the establishment of Republic of Kosova. The scenes of massacre was enough to see what they had passed through. All explanations were in Albanian. The early history saloons were closed in April 2014. Local TV KTV staff made an interview with... More

We found this museum really interesting - unfortunately there is little in English. The images are interesting, and there is lots of weaponry left over from the conflict. We learnt a lot about the Jashari brothers, who we'd never heard of before our visit.
