Kosovo Museum, Pristina
At Kosovo Museum, explore the culture and past of a country that, although newly formed, boasts a long, rich history. Kosovo's national museum serves as the earliest institution of cultural heritage in Kosovo, founded in 1949, and the Austro-Hungarian style building that houses its artifacts dates back to the late 19th century. Rotating exhibits explore different aspects of the nation's history, and there is a permanent gallery dedicated to the Kosovo War of 1998-1999. Limited information is provided in English, but visitors can witness photos, international newspaper stories, and the flags of NATO countries that intervened. Be warned, there are some graphic and potentially disturbing images on display. To visit Kosovo Museum and other attractions in Pristina, use our Pristina journey planner.

Took an hour to go round. Also they need a shop to sell postcards at the very least. In time it will be an even better experience!
Free museum that takes around 30-60 minutes to get around. There is a section on old maps, ancient history and the modern conflict 20 years ago. It's nothing amazing and could do with more information.
