Got scammed. If you show up after 3pm the gate will be open but the museum is actually closed. A man pretending to work there will say it is still open and show you around. Only at the end will he ask for a fee....More

This is Shkodra Historical Museum and in the past, it has been house of the national hero Oso Kuka. You will find here everything about the antiques of Shkodra.

Old style exhibition in a so and so renovated house. To be honest, Shkoder is a fantastic city to stay and to visit, but I could have done without this museum.
