Mixed feelings qbout this place. The guides underline the importance of the Marubi Heritage in the Albanian history, and it's clear the work of the 3 generations is immense and has a very high historic and cultural worth. The museum claims the archives contain 250,000 negatives, but altogether, the permanent exhibition displays over a hundred images, which makes the highly priced visit extremely disappointing. The bookshop is also poorly shelved, you need to go to Tirana to find decent books about the Marubi (in French or in English). As a professional photographer, I really enjoyed seeing the museum, but the place needs to be run by people who know what they're doing.

I am extremely disappointed with this museum. I knew the story of Pietro Marrubi and last October I saw a beautiful exhibition with many beautiful photos of him in Priština, Kosovo. I expected to see even more and new ones from the rich archive here in Shkodra. Instead I found a small temporary exhibition on the ground floor, with photos of other authors, and on the first floor a confused and very modest setup, with small format photos. A very small and uninteresting choice. The museum is new and modern and seems very efficient, the ticket for Albania is expensive (7.5€) but it is all appearance without substance. One more thing: I had to see the museum as soon as I arrived in Shkodar from a long journey because at the entrance they told me that the museum would be closed for the whole following week to 'set up a new exhibition', which I imagine will be very small. And this in high season. Of course it wasn't written anywhere.

Great experience. You can have a look at the old pictures of Shkodra and its citizens. The lifestyle of the years 1890 in the city of Shkoder.

A nice little local museum, very professionally designed design displayed. Beautiful photos, which bring back to life scenes from the 19-20 centuries and the history of photography. Why only 3 stars? It’s a very local exhibition, panels are translated to English yet no context is provided as for the people and the events. As a history freak, it was disappointing. Also, compared with other museums in Albania, tickets were not cheap.

I am a photographer so it was nice to see another person's work. Besides the photographs, there was a display of old camera equipment. You can watch a video, too. The photographs were mainly documented history of Albania.

Today I went to the museum of photography and I have to say that it’s really well organised and you can see and learn a lot of things. After finishing my tour in the museum I wanted to go to the library where you can also watch videos (also in English).
After having started watching a video for only two minutes the receptionist came and asked me to stop and she wanted me to quit.
I said that I’ve just started two minutes ago but she insisted and asked me to interrupt my session. That was really very disappointing for me. Anyway, the museum is really worth the money and the visit.

An exciting museum, doubtless. Entrance fee very high - 700 lek.
Today, only 5 years after opening, unfortunately already damaged and scuffed: the videos only work in part, the book corner is neglected, the inscriptions are already falling off. What a pity! Some maintainance should be done.

It's a high-valued collection of 4-5 generation of photographer family, with Italian origin. The photos are unique, showing a lost Albania from the last centruries torn apart by the powers of the moment. I found not less interesting the photographers of Marubi family, all of them had a completely different life and ideas of how the future of the country should be and it's well expressed on their photos. There is everything translated to English and you can find several sections about the photography of the past, the machines, tehnics etc. Expensive? Yes, but this museum is among the bests in Europe and the conservation of thousands and thousands images is not cheap neither. For sure worth a visit!
