Albanian National Art Gallery

Gallery in Tirana

This gallery traces Albanian painting’s relatively brief history from the early 19th century to the present day. There are also temporary exhibits displayed in the building – see the museum website for more details.

Upstairs the art show a more a political dimension with some truly fabulous examples of Albanian socialist realism while downstairs there’s a small but interesting collection of 19th-century paintings depicting scenes from daily Albanian life.

Don’t miss the small collection behind the building of communist statues in storage, including Lenin and Joseph Stalin. There is a huge spider-web-like sculpture right in front of the gallery that local kids have commanded as a climbing frame.

Don’t miss the art installation in front of the Art Gallery, Reja, The Cloud.
