You won’t need heaps of time. Huge building, but not a lot to see. But that’s understandable, Albanian history is so complex, where do they start? But you’ll get a good handle on it, esp their involvement in the first and second Wwars.

Firstly, this is probably the most iconic building from Albania's recent history, and therefore worth a visit for that reason alone. Secondly, it is cheap, very cheap. At the time of my visit, it was 200 lek! The first few halls of the museum are...More

The most striking thing about the museum is it's architecture - the view of the mosaic on the front is cracking. Once inside though it's quite variable. The best collection is the first one - running from the neolithic, through Archaic times up to the...More

I have to say that I found most of the first two floors rather dull.Then it sprang to live when it got to the 20th century.There were some English translations and it provides some idea of what was happening at the time.Then after 1945 virtually...More

I liked the information and how they were preserved. It has more details about prehistoric time that comunism but it was worth to spend some hours.

The museum is adorned by a Soviet style mosaic in slowly deteriorating condition. It is an expressive testimony to the museum's origin. The historic collections are impressive, and interpreted in English and Albanian. Unfortunately, the signage is in dense, tiny fonts, and sometimes poorly lit....More

For the price of admission, about $2, this museum is a great value. It is easy to spend more than an hour here. Most of the exhibits are labelled in English and nicely curated, though the layout of the museum can be a little confusing....More
