  • The collection is pretty extensive and interesting to visit. Also, the colors used are really interesting especially the rose to Onufri. Worth a quick visit.

  • One of the most important museums in the country. It has a very large collection of Medieval paintings including those of the greatest albanian painter of all time Onufri. The new building makes this ...  more »

  • As in previous issues, some of this material has been generated through Livingmaps events. For example, the interview with Iain Sinclair follows on from his lecture in which he reflected on how London has changed over the past half century in ways which defy the kind of cartographic strategy he has deployed in much of his work. For those of our readers who missed it, a link to the video of his talk is available in the text. We are also delighted to welcome Iain as our new editor-at-large and feel sure that we have not heard the last from him on the subject of mapping.
  • Outstanding museum! Great piece of architecture with hundreds of iconostases of the greatest painters of Medieval Arberia/Albania
  • A must-see site in Korça. The new museum is very beautiful on its own but the icons are the true highlight. There are over 6000 icons in the collection, but only about 400 are shown, which is still a lot. The collection is a beautiful demonstration of mediaval art in Albania. There is a number of famous artists who defined the art in the late mediaval - early mondern era represented in the collection. Among these some of the most important are Onufri, the Zografi brothers, Kostandin Shpataraku etc.
  • 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.
