See how wealthy families of the 19th and early 20th century lived at Ethnographic Museum. The site of the museum was once home to Enver Hoxha, Albania's communist dictator for just over 40 years. The original house burned down in 1966 and was replaced with a reconstruction of a traditional home for a wealthy family in the 19th and early 20th century. Each room is decorated as if a merchant family, or Ottoman administrator, still lived there, with furniture and items arranged to reflect their domestic purpose. Take a free, self-guided tour around the four fully furnished floors of reception and sitting rooms.

Ethnographic Museum reviews
It's doesn't seem as an ethnographic museum , too little traditional dresses. It's Enver Hoxha's birthplace house and as it, mostly you learn details about this. nice to visit it. more »
Good place to visit while you are in gjirokastra, near skenduli’s house. Old decor make this museum worth visiting. more »
It was oké. We where happy to read the folder first so we had some background information. We also bought a nice picture
This is the house of the Hoxha family the most famous of them being Enver. It's a typical Ottoman house similar to Skenduli or others in the town. It holds some items of ethnographic interest but I would recommend it for the interior design. Price is 200 leke
