The Muzeu Historik Kombëtar is located directly at the Skanderbeg square in the heart of Tirana, Albania. You can’t overlook this building as it carries a giant mosaic (called Shqipëria / Albania) that shows Albanians from different eras – only the red star above Mother Albania has been removed. The museum shows the national history of the country chronologially from ancient times until today.
Albanians love to see themselves as descendants of the Illyrians living on the Balkans from the 5th century BCE on. A large section of the museum contains information about medieval times and the national hero Skanderbeg. Other areas present items concerning the antifascist movement during World War II and information about the victims of communism. Also you can find a section dedicated to the life of Mother Teresa. It is definitely a museum you should visit if you want to learn about the history of the country.
