Albania declared independence on November 28, 1912.

From the front balcony of this now historic museum, Ismail Qemali raised the Albanian flag.

Throughout the museum are many historical facts, presented with photographs. As well as several antique pieces of furniture.

On this website, there is an excellent description of the museum. However, the building exterior has changed since that article.

On this website is a detailed article about the Independence of Albania. It is very interesting for history buffs!

This museum is about the way people used to live.

Within the museum, separate rooms and areas are depicting the different ways of life.

Some examples are:

The separate gathering rooms for men and women.

A room for the Fisherman and the Blacksmith.

Another area for various ceramic pottery.

In addition to a room to depict their crafts and woolen rugs. This is my favorite room!
