It is not really a museum, but rather a beautifully preserved traditional home with some interesting exhibits. The house, the rooms, the presentation and the ambiance (including the beautiful garden) are well worth a visit. very enjoyable.

It is a small, but nice and interesting museum situated inside the fortress. Inaugurated in 1979.
Located in a traditional house, a three-storey three-storey building, typical of the Berat area, an 18th-century Ottoman house. This type of building was mainly built for the land owning classes who lived in the town on the rent of their farms and estates. From the outside the museum may look closed as the shutters of the windows are closed . This however is to protect the inside of the rooms from direct sunlight. It includes the folk ethnographic culture of Berat, as well as that of South Albania, a diversity of everyday objects.
The ground floor has a hall with a model of a medieval street with traditional shops on both sides. A reconstruction of a medieval bazaar in the town of Berat. This room has been rebuilt to illustrate the types of shop that were to be found in one of Berat’s old bazaars. One of the main elements on display is the clothing of men and women with its elaborate decoration and embroidery in gold and silver, in particular the women’s outfits. And tools used by silversmiths and weavers.
On the second floor is an archive, loom (where clothing and fabrics items of for all household uses were produced), bedrooms and kitchens. It has two larger Oda’s or guest rooms on the upper floor, one for the men, one for the women and both are furnished in the traditional way.
A terrace, a covered balcony occupies the central position at the front of the building.
Very well preserved items and good explanations in various languages. Good and sufficient information in English.
The outside garden is beautiful with terraces of flowers and fruit trees. Entrance was 200 leke. Cash only. Free toilets on site.

It's a nice museum which help the tourist understanding more about the old way of life. They have written guides in a lot of languages (at least the major Europeans ones). Old house very well kept.

If someone expects a museum with a hell a lot of well organised artefacts than this is maybe not the right place. It is one of these places one goes to have a glimpse at how people used to live in the past. The staff is extremely kind and helpful. And if you want to sit down and just enjoy the cool and the shade of the large terrace overlooking part of the town - nobody will come and bother you. They just leave you there to take a break in peace in the shade.
Kids can have great fun, if you are a good story teller and can make them imagine how this household worked, in the place.
However, try to be respectful. The people in charge of place respect you as a visitor and so please respect the place. Nobody will scold you if you touch something, but if, then do it with care and maybe ask someone if you can. Makes the visit a lot more fun! Guaranteed!!!

The museum is in the middle of the road of fortes. Was an old house, really big when you can see how the people of this city lived in that period of time. The staff was really cool, just ask them for everything. People that love their job.

We found the house itself to be a highlight. The house with the accompanying written explanations gives a real view into a typical wealthy citizens home. You leave with a sense of how the people lived

Although the museum is small - basically just a traditional house with original furnishings and household objects - it is quite different from anything you'll see in the UK and the lady who was in charge on the day we went was very friendly and really knew her stuff (although we did need someone to translate into English).

This wasn't our first house museum we'd seen on the trip, but one of the best. The second floor is particularly interesting and the ground are lovely. The docent on the second floor speaks good English and patiently answered our barrage of questions. Recommended.
