  • The traditional home on the second floor was really worth seeing. The description was barely readable though. The staff spoke English although very unfriendly. The security guard was really nice though. Public toilets available.
  • Nice little museum in a lovely old house, which really gives you a feeling for how people used to live. Well-organized with good explanations. Friendly staff. Well worth a visit.
  • Small, interesting, well signposted and friendly staff. Definitely worth going to.
  • Good experience of delving into the customs and traditions of Albanians. You can spend one hour there before heading to the castle.
  • Well laid out and interesting
