From all three ethnographic museums in Kosovi this ia the best one. It has many rooms and it is curated to show the life in Kosovo from birth to death. There are nice peaces of cloth and you get a free tour. The yard of the museum is also beautiful. If you are lucky you can visit an exposition in... More

The phrase "not to be missed " is tossed around a lot, but in this case it's true. In a chaotic city with relatively few charms, it is a pleasant oasis. The collection is the largest I've seen in the Balkans, with more rooms on display than any other ethnographic museum in the region. The guide was informative and friendly.... More

The visit to the Ethnological Museum was part of our walking tour of Pristina. Our guide Vallon gave a very good description of how life was for well to do Kosovars during a long gone era. He even played and sang a song with one of the traditional string instruments. A most informative tour .

Very interesting place and fabulously guided by a curator. I love the insight into an earlier time with original furnishings and clothing. Sorry the main museum is still closed.

Not much to see, too small, not attractive. Polite, helpful tourist guide but you can see everything without him.

If you succeed in finding this nice museum, it is set in 2 beautiful traditional houses. Free entrance but possible donation at the end. An employee offered me a guided tour but he rushed too much the visit unfortunately. Worth visiting if in Pristina though.

It is a small charming museum located in two old buildings next to each other. The onside guide approached us and offer us a guided tour. You can choose between having a guided tour or exploring the museum on your own. The guide was super nice and helpful. The entrance and guided tour are for free but you can give... More
