  • Huge classical style building, decidedly kitsch on the exterior. Others have grumbled about the attendants. They do have a tendency to be control freaks, but we found them pleasant enough. I have the ...  more »

  • Very interesting artifacts in this museum and they are displayed well. See if you can find the "gold" face that is on the Macedonian currency. We were there with our tour group, so a museum guide expl...  more »

  • Really amazing place and worth to see. Exhibitions can tell a lot about Macedonian history. Price is good. Not working on Mondays. Great inside design.
  • Not too big. Nice and modern. An interesting collection. Definitely worth visiting if you are in Skopje.
  • Very very disappointed and frustrated as I have done 2 rounds going up and down the Old Bazar to find it. After asking at that 5 star hitel located nearby, I discovered it's in front on the hotel itself! There are signs indicating the museum on the street but not on the building itself, so you literally cannot identify it! On top of it it looks like a normal old building , so hard to spot! I gave up and didn't go inside out of frustration. Got hungry and it closed by the time I finished my meal.
  • Very nice and modern museum. Big collection, especially the ancient jewelry is marvelous. Sometimes more context of how objects were made and used would be nice. Price is 300D for adults.
  • Very nice museum with extraordinary coin collection.

Where to stay in Skopje

The capital of Macedonia and a city of numerous sights, Skopje offers a good selection of places to stay despite its relatively modest size. Even though most hotels cluster in the center of town, you can easily find accommodation in other neighborhoods too. The selection ranges from several high-end hotels and fully-furnished apartments to many economical but charming places to stay. The city wide selection of hostels, many of which are very close to the city center, appeal to younger travelers.
