History Museum Museum
Inside a traditional Albanian house, you'll find the Shkoder Historical Museum, where each room of the house showcases a different aspect of Albanian life. The main reception room is the highlight, with a large relief carved above the fireplace, couches lining the walls, and glass cases protecting traditional costumes. A separate room with a stone floor showcases coins and metal tools. The last communist leader of the country lived in the house. Note that if the museum is not busy, they may lock the door.
