Kosovo Museum, Pristina

2.3
#3 of 8 in Museums in Kosovo
At Kosovo Museum, explore the culture and past of a country that, although newly formed, boasts a long, rich history. Kosovo's national museum serves as the earliest institution of cultural heritage in Kosovo, founded in 1949, and the Austro-Hungarian style building that houses its artifacts dates back to the late 19th century. Rotating exhibits explore different aspects of the nation's history, and there is a permanent gallery dedicated to the Kosovo War of 1998-1999. Limited information is provided in English, but visitors can witness photos, international newspaper stories, and the flags of NATO countries that intervened. Be warned, there are some graphic and potentially disturbing images on display. To visit Kosovo Museum and other attractions in Pristina, use our Pristina journey planner.

  • Nice reconstructed museum taking you from early history of this geographic region and war in Kosovo and fight for independence. The missing part was some written story guide of Kosovo and connection between early history and Kosovo war. Independence room with all flags who recognise Kosovo is really worth to see! Entry is free and without tour guide.
  • Good little museum, we had a personal tour from a volunteer their which was very informative. Would definitely recommend.
  • Was apparently under renovation for a long time, but was open when we visited. Nice selection of Kosovar history, from Paleolithic to the struggle for independence.
  • Used to live nearby. Wouldn't go out of my way for it, but if you're in the neighborhood...
  • Beautiful building but I think it was under renovation when I visited
