This is an interesting historical and archeological museum which is worth visiting at least as much for its iconic architecture and place in Enver Hoxha's Communist-era Tirana as for the museum itself. It is one of the most, if not the most, important example of...More

Very good museum for gaining an insight to Albania's history. Well worth an hour or so. Would have scored higher had they allowed photography. I would have been proud to show my friends at home the delights of the displays and encourage them to visit.

Starts from the beginning, with flint tools found locally, and takes you to liberation after WWII. Really cheap to get in and isn't huge so doesn't get dull. There is a little gift shop selling hand made scarves, clothing and jewelry. Only slight problem was...More
