Try stepping back to a time when museums were not all eye candy. This museum lays out its 300 objects depicting the peoples' lives on the floor or on a bench. Everything is helter-skelter. But you can make out a strange looking tobacco cutter, an eel fork, or a carved wooden wool bobbin. You'll ogle at the full sheepskin winter cloak hanging on one wall. To keep the sword arm or shepherd's crook arm free Albanian mountain men wore this heavy cloak slung over the left shoulder. Upstairs you'll see an array of gorgeous 100-150 year old heavily embroidered folk costume pieces. These objects are displayed in the Patriot's Club, a house used for meetings leading to Albania's independence from the Ottoman Turks (1912). It is the real Albania.
