  • Small but excellent museum devoted to the Albanian state spying on its own, and foreign, citizens. Documentaries and exhibits tell the story, in particular a fascinating filmed sting operation on a Yugoslav embassy wife selling black market in 1960's Tirana. Will take a few hours to it justice. 700 L admission.
