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.

I have visited the museum on several occasions and different exhibitions, and let me assure you that there are tons of impressive materials that deserve to be exposed to the public, but are kept in storage instead unappreciated. It seems that the post-war incompetent management was more interested in promoting the wartime exhibitions that are just lame and disturbing, as... More

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
