    The place to go for Albanian history
    If you want to learn about Albanian history head for the Muzeu Historik Kombetar in Skanderbej Square. It is a bit dark and gloomy inside and is not air-conditioned, which is an issue on a very hot day, like when we visited. It does do a good job of representing the historical background of the country.

    Visiting the National museum of tirana
    This place has great potential to become a true attraction. Unfortunately despite the collection is quite good, it's not well displayed and apart from the classic ages, all other areas do not have information in English. The building has an historical values as it was built during the communist dictatorship, hence large spaces and halls all across. A bit more guidance through the floors would make a better experience as well as a more multimedia display.

    A typical Museum
    This is typical of a historical museum. Nothing wrong with that but when you have seen a few most things are predictable!. We visited late one afternoon around 2.45pm and were advised that the Museum shut at 4pm. However you could back again to finish your visit if you had not completed that day. They have a over 60's rate but we were told we could not have that as we were not Nationals. This was the only place in Albania that said this. The difference in price in reality was nothing!

Create experience, beautiful country, and the history. I was surprised from this history of protection of Europe from Turkish Empire

The only interesting part was the greek antiquity exhibition. The rest of it was done quite poorly with sloppy English translation. I went especially for the etnography collection just to see just a few pieces, nothing special. The museum building is in need of some restoration, not only a fresh paint coat.
The biggest concern was the protocronism written all over.

The ground floor ancient history and artifacts has good English descriptions, but this is more limited on other floors and modern history. If you know Albania's history of the last century you can work it out and the photos are good.

If you don’t speak Albanian, I wouldn’t visit this museum. There are three floors, and the bottom floor is Ancient history, artifacts, etc. it is the only one in English and Albanian. The top two floors, including more modern history, independence, communism, visits my Mother Teresa, etc are all on,y in Albanian.

The woman at the front desk was incredibly rude for no reason so we decided not to go. I’m not sure what ‘we’re 5 Americans trying to honor your history by visiting this museum’ would cause such meanness.

Only the bottom floor has English translations and this floor is all the ancient history. The upper floors have no English translations and are a product of the communist dictatorship's view of history. It's a bit dark and gloomy, with no air conditioning - all a bit North Korean (I imagine). Not worth the entrance fee (cash only).

Good range of artefacts and history of Albanian but layout in confusing order. Not sequential and a lot of the written word not translated - they may be an Audi guid but we were not offered it?
