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.

Fascinating Ethnographic museum in the large traditional home of an 18th century general. The house is filled with period furnishings and implements, such as a built in butter churn, a loom, a flour mill and wonderful rugs and embroidered fabrics.our guide told us about families, traditions .....

See life the way it was lived while producing wine, leather, homegoods, etc. Rooms show the separate living quarters for men & women as well as how they entertained others.

Tough walk up the hill to get to this rather small recreated home from 200 years ago. But all mannekins dressed in period costumes and appliances Some interesting views into olive and wine making and kitchens. Would not go again

Second time I've done this tour and it is brilliant. The information and insight into Albania history is quick but meaty and the tour guide we had both times was very funny. I highly highly recommend this place if you go there... fluent in English as well!

The Ethnographic Museum is in a 15 room villa built in 1764 that was once owned by the Toptani family. They were wealthy merchants and the house and its furniture offer a window into the life style of the time. The building itself is well maintained. Our guide, Nurmir Ricaj, enthusiastically explained the various rooms and their contents. The family was apparently fully self-sufficient--pressing their own olives and processing wool from start to finished projects as well as other activities necessary for daily living. Twenty-five family members lived in the house and 20 servants lived elsewhere in one of their other 3 houses! As this museum is on the same property as the Skanderbeg Castle, it is easy to visit both at the same time.

For a really good insight into the lifestyle of the wealthier merchants and families of Albania you can go no further than this museum. Beautifully presented with English placards, mannequins, colourful costumes and music, you will be entertained as well as educated. We watched a video of felt-making and then went down into the bazaar area and met the man in the video who then proceeded to shown us in person how he made the felt slippers that I bought! What an amazing experience!
