This museum is fantastic. This Ottoman house has been beautifully restored, its a very grand house too. No guided tours but there are information cards to carry round written in many languages. Its very informative and a great insight to life in ancient Berat

This is a very good little museum. Very informative and small enough not to get bored of. We spent around 30-45 minutes here and that was well worth the 200 lek entry fee. You get a real sense of what life would have been like.
