Great museum in the beautiful city of Korca. The building is very modern and much appropriate for icons. Its collection is very rich with paintings from the most famous albanian painters such as Onufri, Zografi or Shpataraku.

If you're interested in icon painting this museum's a must. It's a well-curated and well laid out collection in a modern building. Check out particularly the icon of St Christopher with a dog's head (then look it up on the internet)

One of the most valuable museums in the country. It has a very rich collection of medieval icons especially those of Onufri. They are exposed in a completely new building with a interesting architecture. Definitely a must-visit place.
