Before heading out to explore the beaches of the Albanian Riviera, it is worth visiting the small Sarandë ‘Museum of Tradition’ or ethnographic Museum.

The museum of housed in Sarandë’s old customs house near the  town wharf. The museum gives you an introduction to local ethnology and archaeology.

There is a section that displays musical instruments, traditional clothing, rugs and weaving looms. There are also  many fascinating photographs from the time of the communist era  which illustrate the changes that the town has undergone recently.

The collection includes a drawing of Sarandë’s original stone watchtowers by the 19th-century British poet and artist Edward Lear.
