This ethnographic museum is the best we have seen in Albania. We had a great guide who was very knowledgable and amusing. The building was 254 years old. Some items inside were as old. It was a most interesting visit.

It is a real gem. Excellent museum and the guidance we had was more than good. In fluent English, the creator of the place took us from one room to the other and explained it in the best way.

The museum is in the former home of a well-off merchant, making it a smaller museum that is quite quickly seen. However, it is very well put together, and really gives a good idea of how an upper-class home could have been. NB: You need...More
