Somehow this house doesn’t come together. It doesn’t look like a house and is essentially one room with a random bed and table in the middle and some photos and a few letters. You’re letting wanting more for sure and while it is free to enter, could do with a make over

This small, self-guided "memorial house" is not to be missed during your trip to Skopje. There is a nice exhibition of St. Mother Teresa's writings and personal effects, including a life-size statue of her that is eerily human and quite affecting. The tiny gift shop has a surprisingly vast collection of tasteful souvenirs and gifts from Albania and Macedonia, most of which are imbued with Mother Teresa's image and sayings. It won't take long to stop in to this curiously wonderful gem of a place; it's within walking distance of the "Warrior on a Horse" Fountain in the center of Skopje.

Not much inside. Outside are 4 mounds of rocks, with a metal ball on top, signifying Mother Teresa’s view that though a drop (metal ball) is small, even an ocean (mound of rocks) would be nothing without that drop. Each mound was supposed to include a fountain, but the city ran out of cash.

Very small but in a cool building, and considering it was free, I can't really complain. The exhibit is self explanatory and limited to one room. None of the staff acknowledged or spoke to us, but maybe it was because they didn't speak English or didn't want to interact with people due to COVID. Overall worth popping in to.

A museum dedicated to a renowned Catholic nun, Mother Teresa, with an eclectic design & a striking, modern chapel. Don't be mistaken, this isn't her birth house. There is a plaque for that-not too far away. There used to be a church located here and it's where Mother Teresa was baptized.

A lovely memorial in a very busy and built up area. You’re free to wander round as you wish and while there was a lot of construction taking place next door on the day of my visit, it’s a relaxing spot giving opportunity to reflect. If this is something you think will interest you then it’s worth hunting down.

Interesting to see in person various handwritten notes of Mother Teresa. Loved how they preserved numerous memorabilias of Mother Teresa.

Very ugly building. Since she spent most of her life in India and her parents were from Kosovo I don't really understand the purpose of it either. Perhaps a nice statue could be more interesting.

Nice to decide building memorial house of Mother Theresa in the center of her home town. Nice to dedicate prime location of the center about it. But a crime to allow such architectural proposal to actually be built. Total kitch, pointless and ugly mixture of styles, and total lack of concept or relation to the person famous for her humanity, simplicity and spirituality.

The building is an interesting but unfortunately in a kitschish sense. The stone wall topped with a spaceship looking structure. This is not the best example of horrid kitsch in Skopje. I think the Statue of Alexander the Great and the new arch the triump they are building next to the statue is the worst/best kitsch I have ever seen. Even Las Vegas is left far behind
