It's doesn't seem as an ethnographic museum , too little traditional dresses. It's Enver Hoxha's birthplace house and as it, mostly you learn details about this. nice to visit it.

Nice to have visited, nice explanation at the entrance. Glad to have been there. So, walk a bit and spend an hour or so there. Recommended. Not spectacular but ok to visit.

Quite disappointing

Not very much imagination has gone into the displays of this museum. I thought we would see some original furniture in keeping with the age of the building, but no. A "child's bedroom" with no bed in it....

Not bad

This well preserved house has a bunch of traditional-ish furniture and is worth looking around if you are in the area. It cost 200 lek to get in and gives you an idea of how the more wealthy people lived.

Interesting exposition of communism propaganda art

A very interesting museum located in the birth house of Hoxha. Interesing exposition showing the traditional life and the birth room of the Albanian dictator. Gjirokaster is called a stone town and is famous for its amazing buildings and it is on the heritage list of UNICEF.

Not much to see

Some old relics in a house that is a replica of the house where Hoxha was born. Would be much more interesting with some more guidance or relics related to Hoxha himself. It is not so interesting for etnography and there is almost nothing about Hoxha.

Interesting local house
Jun 2019 • Couples
We visited on a very hot afternoon so the house provided us with a great way to get out of the heat. I’m not saying the house was terribly cool but at least we weren’t on the scorching hot streets. The house is not really an ethnographic museum, but more like an example of a traditional Gjirokastër house from the early 19th century where Enver Hoxha was born. It costs 200 Lek and is an interesting thing to do that won’t take too long. It would be great if there could be some building maintenance done but obviously that takes resources that might be difficult to find.
