  • The museum houses a collection of gorgeous medieval artwork from Orthodox churches across the country. When we visited in November, the museum was completely empty of tourists, so we had the entire fa...  more »
  • A must if you visit this beautiful city. Impressive collection of icons in a contemporary setting and pretty original. When we visited we enjoyed a guided tour very knowledgeable in very good Italian.

  • The collection is quite extensive and interesting to visit. However, for those without a lot of knowledge of icons (like me) some more information would be useful. But it's well worth the visit.  more »

  • Very interesting. The museum is very new and it has moved. The new building is modern and contains very icons and information. You have to go
  • A lovely collection of Byzantine era artifacts, mostly restored Orthodox paintings, a few Albanian metallic chalice and engraved metallic bible covers. One large, restored wooden church front covered in paintings. 16th - 18th century with the flat, dour faces characteristic of the period. Beautiful fresh new building, well air conditioned, lovely lady gave a beautiful commentary in rich Albanian accent. Having been to the lovely Skanderburg museum in Kruya I expected more traditional Albanian artifacts, knives, clothes, pottery etc, rather than just Orthodox paintings.
  • Breathtaking icons in a stunning setting. Not to be missed. Note its new location and entry fee of 700 lek - but worth it. Ring doorbell for entry.
  • A must vistit destination when in Korca.
  • It's a bit expensive.
