The museum does an excellent job of presenting the time-line of Macedonian independence. The museum lay-out is done chronologically with Macedonian history. The exhibits are very heavy on paintings and wax figures. The wax figures are so life like, I thought they were actually performance artists. The museum is laid out over 3 floors and ends in the grand lobby with an enormous stained glass rotunda. Very impressive. Very easy to find, just across the walking bridge from the central square. Admission is only 300 dinars (5 euros / 6 USD). Right now, is a perfect time to visit, as I was literally the only guest in the museum.

Excellent museum on the struggle for Macedonia's independence. Tariff is a bit higher than other museums at 300 Den. and taking photos isn't allowed. The exhibits start from the Ottoman rule and end at independence from Yugoslavia. It's a fantastic historical and political museum-I recommend visiting this museum. The wax mannequins are lifelike and honestly, they freaked me out as they are so real! The paintings are from Russian, Ukrainian, Bulgarian, and Serbian artists-very real and depicts tortures and murders; hence, the reason for no photos.

We didn't have the chance to go inside, but we got the just of it from our tour guide. The building is made to look likes its from an older Era, but really was only build less then 10 years ago.

I'm not sure how this museum is even possible on the European soil... Wax figures of tortured, shot or hanged people? Really? Whoever designed the concept of this museum got it terribly wrong...
