it was among the list of places to that I signed to visit. As soon as we arrived we are very much welcomed by the guys there. Everything was explained to us in details, it was kind of a free tour (by the way, it was not something that they offer, but it was done out of their welcoming traits)
I really enjoyed it, it felt like a step into the past of the place, which was also very much near to my culture and It felt like I'm in a different Epoque. It is very well maintained, very clear and you can freely go and enter, take pictures and look around.
Definetly worth it.

I encountered racism by a person who is probably working here. When I asked the person if Albanians and Kosovars are the same, he replied, "They are. Like Japan, Korea, and China."

I explained that these countries have perfectly different identities and languages; he refused to understand. Moreover, he pointed at my face, suggesting similar appearances. His attitude was offensive, making me hesitant to use the term "racism," but I suggested that what he said was inappropriate and racist.

He involved other Albanian tourists, excusing himself by claiming he was merely ignorant and had asked if Japan and China were the same; However, what he excused to other tourists wasn't the truth. I was so shocked and cried, but he didn't even apologise to me. He just told me to leave if I didn't like it.

I came here to learn about their ethnicity, following a recommendation from a person from Kosovo, and I had no expectations of encountering such discrimination against other countries and ethnicities.

I'm not blaming ignorance, but it was so inappropriate to point at someone's face and assert the similarity of appearances, claiming they belong to the same ethnicity. If similar appearances alone define the same ethnicity, I cannot understand how Kosovars and Albanians differ from other ethnicities.

Unfortunately, I learned nothing here. (9 Mar 2024)

Although we had a tough time finding the museum (the location on Google Maps is incorrect, luckily there is a small sign suggesting the correct location; I will add the photo regarding the correct coordinates), our visit was a pleasant and very interesting experience.
We were welcomed warmly by the staff and a member took us on a tour of the museum. She spoke perfect English and guided us through every room of the museum explaining the significance of what we saw with care and precision. She also added a few details on the history of Kosovo, that we appreciated.
Our visit was free of charge, though we left a small donation (the staff did not offer that possibility, if you like your visit and are willing to donate something: we recommend you ask!).
Sadly we could only visit one half of the museum, for the other -- and bigger -- half is undergoing maintenance: that surely would be a reason to come back to Pristina!

The Ethnological museum is in the city of Pristina and holds enough to inform you about the country. It is free to enter but donations are appreciated. It is a small museum, so do not expect a vast amount of relics from the museum in the youngest country in Europe

The visit to Ethnological museum is a gift- the exibition is interesting, the entrace is free of charge and you are given a guided tour by one of the workers of the museum. You can show your appreciation by a voluntary donation. We managed to convince Ilir, the curator of the museum, to give us a guided tour of the city afterhours. It was great, highly proffesional and with a personal story. I recommend both the visit to the museum and (if you are lucky) the tour of Prishtina.

I visited the museum in Dec 2021, when it was still undergoing renovations that are now completed. Ilir was a fantastic tour guide, and the museum itself was a pleasure to visit.

For Albanians and foreigners alike, there is a lot that can be learnt!

Honestly....nothing to see. An old building. Enjoy the photos. More value. Otherwise you would be disappointed.

Ilir was an excellent guide: very passionate about his work and about the museum. The house is very well-preserved and I feel like I learned a lot. Very grateful to Ilir and congratulations for the great work they are doing in conserving Kosovo's cultural heritage.

It is a place that you should visit in Prishtina! Except the things to see inside the museum, also the building is exceptional for the city. It is a must especially if you are a tourist in the city.
