The whole family enjoyed the museum. Beautiful! It was a little pricey for such a small museum but it was enjoyable. more »
This is a world class collection of Byzantine / Orthodox ikons which would not look out of place in a museum in New York, and far better than anything London could offer. Presentation of exhibits is breathtaking. If there is only one thing you need to come to Albania for, this is it.
Great architechture and design of museum. Each room is wonderfully presented. Knowledgeable staff explain the exhibition.
