Opened in 1948 the museum displays the archaeological discoveries from within Albania. One of the most important museums in the country, the National Archaeological Museum in Tirana contains some of the most famous treasures of Albanian archaeology.

The Museum houses exhibits such as ancient jewelry, to Roman statues, to vast clay pots covered in shellfish from Prehistoric and Classical times up to the Middle Ages and the Modern period with over 2,100 objects distributed throughout five large halls.

Unfortunately the layout of the museum is not great and there are not many explanations for the objects displayed also there are no tours available in English. Many of the more interesting archaeological objects are on display in the national history museum on Skandenberg square, so that may be worth visiting instead :(.

The Museum is the parent institution of several other museums in the country including the Durrës Archaeological Museum.
