Kosovo Museum, Pristina

2.6
#3 of 9 in Museums in Kosovo
At Kosovo Museum, explore the culture and past of a country that, although newly formed, boasts a long, rich history. Kosovo's national museum serves as the earliest institution of cultural heritage in Kosovo, founded in 1949, and the Austro-Hungarian style building that houses its artifacts dates back to the late 19th century. Rotating exhibits explore different aspects of the nation's history, and there is a permanent gallery dedicated to the Kosovo War of 1998-1999. Limited information is provided in English, but visitors can witness photos, international newspaper stories, and the flags of NATO countries that intervened. Be warned, there are some graphic and potentially disturbing images on display. To visit Kosovo Museum and other attractions in Pristina, use our Pristina journey planner.

  • Clear collection of pots and weapons. Admission is on a donation basis. We spent 15 there.

  • The first floor of the museum presents the exponats of the neolitic and novel era found in the territory of Kosovo. But the second floor is more interesting because it is possible to see here the weapons and clothes of the 1999 guere. Ok, the story of Kosovo is connected with the KLA army, but it's some chause you can't see every day.

  • Small museum. Nice archeological exhibit on the first floor with some signage in English but not much. No signage at all on the second floor, which is mostly guns and other military objects related to the conflict between Kosovo and Serbia.
  • Emotional place. Would definitely recommend to visit this place to understand more of this country's history. Sadly not everything had information or was in English.
