I actually went to the museum in June 2013, so I'm not sure how much it has changed since I was there, but there were very few exhibitions, all about the Kosovo War and not anything else. I know the country has been struggling for independence, and it may be an interesting place to visit in the future, but right... More

We managed to take a look at the building which was very attractive and went inside until someone advised that the museum is being renovated. I'm sure it will be very interesting once complete!

Unfortunately still closed for renovation when I visited. I had hoped to see the famous Goddess on Throne, whose image is on the Kosovar ID cards and elsewhere, as a symbol of Kosovo. Opposite the museum is a little park (closed) with a few tombstones and what appears to be a Roman inscription, as well as a glass warehouse for... More

The Kosova Museum house was built by Austrians for the Turkish army in 1898, and was used by the Yugoslav national army until 1975. Nowadays it has a rich collection of prehistoric objects and a wide archaeological exhibition that presents the life during the Illyrian, Dardanian and Roman years. The object is located in the center of Prishtina.

It is better to check if the atrations are open or closed before going there. While i was in Pristina most of the atractions where closed for rebuilding and as the workers don't speak english, i couldn't get when it would be reopened.

They left the main gate open when I walked by so I wandered in, and was pretty quickly assured that it was definitely closed for reconstruction. I would have loved to have seen it, but it looks like they may have just started the construction process!

No access due to 'renovations' with only a couple of anti aircraft weapons in the front yard rusting away...this building was used in the war and all these years later they decide to renovate; the park across the street with archaeological finds on display in the open air also closed to the public...the near by mosques also closed for renovations...

Visit this place with a kosovar friend so he can hep you translating all the information. Despite only a few things are in English, it doesn't take the importance out of the subjects exposed. Kosovo recent History is bloody and sad, due to the terrible war. But now the country is getting better and the former problems are finding solutions,... More
