The first day I visited the Kosovo Museum I didn’t see any personnel or guard. You could just walk in; no entrance fee. The second day was there both personal (1) and a guard, but still no fee. The Kosovo Museum has departments of archaeology, ethnography, and natural science and the Museum of Independence. The most fascinating artifact in the museum was the Goddess on the Throne, which is a terracotta figurine found at the site of the Tjerrtorja spinning mill near Pristina, Kosovo in 1956. The figurine is dated four millennia before Christ in the Vinča culture in Kosovo. Furthermore, as it is one of the most precious archaeological artifacts of Kosovo, it has been adopted as the symbol of Pristina.

They are doing their best but frankly the overall impression is rather pathetic looking- most of it was looted by departing Serbian troops

On the ground floor there is a rather basic archaeological exhibition which contains a number of copies. The second floor features some even more basic exhibits on the country's recent history. It comes as quite a surprise that photography is not allowed. Perhaps because there is so little see.

Late in the morning we walked the steps to visit the Kosovo Museum in Mitrovica museum. With its war torn past, some of the museum's collections have been pilfered. Museum staff were extremely accommodating, sharing their past including recreated rooms from the Ottoman Empire, the importance of regional mining, fine art and artists hailing from that region. The museum's budget is tight so lights are used sparingly and heating is scarce, but docents make up for it all with their warmth and knowledge.

You must get a guide, I know you can do it on your own, but to hear it all from a Kosovare is so spot on!! Have you ever wondered what happened during the 'Kosovo Crisis' this will explain briefly, but the Memorial in Prekaz will make it super clear!
