National Historical Museum

History, ethnography and a powerful display about the oppression of the Communist regime

Save to my Account

The spectacular Socialist Realist mosaic across the front of the National Historical Museum is its most dramatic feature. Inside there are exhibits of a pre-historical, historical and ethnographic nature. There are special exhibitions on the world’s most famous Albanian, Mother Theresa, on the Second World War, and on the ‘Communist Terror’.

Very little signage is in English which makes a tour unaccompanied by a guide a frustrating experience, but the Communist era exhibition in particular has a powerful message which can be understood from the photographs and artefacts from the 6000 people killed by the regime, including many Islamic and Christian faith leaders in the world’s only atheist state.
