Albania's largest museum, Muzeu Historik Kombetar has seven pavilions of exhibits. You'll spot the attraction by the large mosaic above the front entrance called "The Albanians." Each pavilion showcases a different period in Albania's history from antiquity to communism. In the antiquity pavilion you'll see objects from prehistory to the Middle Ages, including tools from daily life, coins, and base reliefs. As you move forward in time, the exhibits get more political, celebrating Albanian independence and decrying abuses from outside nations. Beyond the socio-political history, there is also an iconography exhibit with notable works by local artists and a large exhibit sharing Albania's story from World War II. Call ahead to book a guided tour to fit your schedule; for a self-guided tour buy tickets at the reception desk.

Fairly mediocre museum. Be aware that not everything is explained in English. The building doesn’t have air conditioning so when I was there (in the summer) the temperature of some of the rooms was quite hot. If you need to kill some time it’s worth a try - the entrance ticket is 200LEK so....
