Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A nice, small museum to learn about local history. Admission is 400 lek- a little pricey for Eastern Europe, but still affordable. Most of the artifacts are from ancient grave sites and some are from shipwrecks.

Very interesting and informative museum. It was empty when we visited, saw no other visitors. Good displays with translations if needed. Very clear directions and friendly staff. Temp check etc. on arrival. Entry fee very reasonable. Sad to see the damage from the earthquake so hope it is repaired and fully opened soon. Don't forget to walk round the back as there are a few exhibits tucked away outside.

Currently being renovated so not as much on display as usual but worth the visit. Artefacts are well displayed and labelled in Albanian and English, and of very good quality. Allow 45 minutes. 300Lek.

Well displayed small museum with very helpful curator. The second floor was closed when we visited in August 2019. We hope to visit again when it will be open.

Lots of great information and ancient artefacts really made this place worth abit of time, only one floor was open unfortunately but still good for the cheap price.

This museum, along with the Amphitheater (a ticket allows entry to both), is probably the only thing worth seeing in this scruffy port town.

The air conditioned ground floor of the museum housed an interesting but small collection of artefacts and there is information available in English.

Sadly the two upper floors were closed making this a brief visit.

It's actually open from 10am-2pm, then 5-8pm I recall, not 10-5 as advertised on Google.

If you don't find archaeology or history interesting then you are stuffed as Durres is a dull place with dirty beaches.

In the museum you can admire objects, amphoras, funeral monuments both from Greek and Roman periods. This is the biggest archaeological museum in Albenia and all you'll see comes from Duress. Worth to see!

It;s not too big but really new Museum were half of exhibition were accesable. Only prehistory, greek and roman time were presented. Osman and middle age were in preparation. It is open 7 days a weeek from 9 to 17 (probbably). We had some problem with entrance because stuff went to work around 9.30 but it was worth to wait. A ticket from the museum allows you to enter the amphitheater!

There are many artefacts from the 7th century BC until Roman time. Almost everything has an English description.
The collection is presented in a beautiful manner and there's enough light.
Open everyday from 9 am to 2 pm and from 4 to 8 pm

The museum is closed. The board outside said the renovation work should've been done in 2023. Still a building site unfortunately.
Shame as it could've been an interesting day.
