“great historical overview”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

very good museum albeit cold.. the rooms take you thro the centuries. Sadly more recent episodes are not well captured in english explanations but at least the photos and exhits help. A definite must to visit

“Nice”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

I went to National History Museum last year as a tourist, and I loved the monuments, sculptures, etc, but the museum didn't have a qualified guide and he came late. So overall it was nice.

“Interesting visit”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

Been there several times with friends and family visiting from UK. The museum is very spacious , on three floors and very quiet,not many visitors. There is no English on the labels so difficult for foreigners to understand and English speaking guide is not always available. Still worth visiting to understand a bit about Albanian history.

“A Grat Way to Learn About The Rich History of Albania - Get for the English Speaking Guide”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

I was very impressed with the layout and exhibits on display. Albania has a very tumultuous history that makes this a very worthwhile side-trip. Allow about 1 hour for the guided tour.

English speakers will need to take one of the guided tours. Most of the exhibits are only described in placards that are printed in the local language.

Of particular note is a wonderful collection of Eastern Orthodox Icons that survived Fascist and Communist purges of religious artifacts.
