Lonely Planet review for National Museum of History
The National Museum of History has a wonderful socialist-realist Albania mosaic on its front. It still shows proud Albanians marching through history, only now the flag is missing its communist star. Inside are many of this ancient land's archaeological treasures, dating back as far as 100,000 BC. The extensive partisan-communist section has been retained (unfortunately without English translations), but it now ends with a large memorial exhibit to victims of Hoxha's regime.
