Museum of Macedonian Struggle Reviews
I visited this unique National Museum that capture the essence of Macedonian struggle over centuries for finally attaining Independence and nationhood. Opened in 2011,the Museum exhibits consist of... more »
Extensive collection very well displayed. Informative and educational. Well worth the time. I learned a lot more »
Definitely worth a visit. English speakers will enjoy a self-guided tour using the plaques inside with little stories about Macedonian heroes who gradually helped them gain statehood and independence. So many lifelike and life-size paintings and wax models that you will most certainly be immersed in the whole story. The museum is also surprisingly big (3 levels), so depending on whether you read everything or not it will probably take you 45m to 1 hour.
Museum full of figures and cool exhibition. Ask for guide when going in (it's for free and without s/he you'll not know many interesting facts).
