  • I visited here on a quiet Monday afternoon, so the place was deserted. There are some very interesting artefacts inside, dating back to centuries BC. However, the layout of said artefacts isn't the be...  more »
  • The museum contains a huge collection of objects created in the ancient era. It was relatively easy to set up an exhibition, as the Greek and Roman colonies had long been located on the territory of modern Albania. Sculptures, ceramics, tools and other material values found by archaeologists during excavations make a strong impression.

  • Spent 20 minutes and I'm a massive fan of this kind of museum. There's no signposts in any language, so you're going off your preexisting knowledge, and it's essentially just one hall. That said, some of the statues are exceptionally detailed, and I appreciate that they're on public display, even if the presentation needs further development. It's worth it if you need to pass some time and like the antiquities. Costs 300 leks, less if you're a student.
  • Incredibly small museum. Cost is 300L per person. Sadly there is absolutely NO explanation of any of the items in the museum in any language. No dates, names, places, or any identifying detail telling any kind of a story of what you're seeing. Essentially it's three small rooms of old clay and stone pottery pinned to the walls under glass. That's it. No reason to visit this place. Too bad, because there are probably very interesting stories associated with the artifacts.
