Small museum in lovely old building, interesting interior with some delightful antique furniture. Building is located in the back streets of the town which is not very interesting.

This is a small museum with 200 lek fee however it has a nice archeology exhibit with an exhibit of traditional dress and musical instruments from Albania. The audio tape is very good. Takes about 45 minutes to see. Location is downtown Shkoder.

this museum is small and relatively many different objects are in show including the old costumes. Worth a short visit in order to get a feeling of the history in the area

The guide is quite good the written one. But the person who works there does not know a good English for that position.

This beautiful Ottoman house is the venue for this lovely, small museum, which provides an overview of the visual arts, historic artifacts, and ethnology of the area. The included acoustiguide provides great context, however, I found myself wanting more on many of the specific pieces in the collection. That said, a wonderful way to spend about an hour.

We had an excellent guided tour. There is a wealth of history here. While it is small it is excellent in that you can see and learn much with out spending half a day. I would definitely take my kids there as it packs enough info in a short time that they would stay interested and I would get some... More
