Kosovo Museum - Prishtina

Das Museum wurde im Jahr 1949 zur Erhaltung, Restaurierung, Konservierung und Präsentierung des kulturellen Erbes aus dem Territorium der heutigen Republik Kosovo gegründet. Es ist in vier organisatorische Abteilungen gegliedert: Archäologie und Numismatik, Ethnologie, Moderne Geschichte und Natur.

The museum's exhibits and artifacts are exhibited and stored in three buildings. The collection contains over 50,000 artifacts. Another 1,200 objects are to be brought back from Belgrade in the future.

It was built in 1889 in the Austro-Hungarian style for initially military purposes. Two halls are used for exhibition collections and one for special exhibitions. The inner courtyard and the archaeological park (lapidarium) by the main building are also used for various exhibitions. The third floor of the building is the workplace of the Archaeological Institute of Kosovo.
The Ethnological Museum is an integral part of the Museum of Kosovo. It is housed in four historic buildings on Henrik Barić Street in the north of the old town, two of which were built in the 18th and two in the 19th century. The building complex is named after Emin Gjika, a local merchant. The museum of Kosovo has housed the ethnological exhibition collection there since 2006.
The House of Independence is the third and last part of the museum and collects artifacts, photographs, documents and the like, which are themed about the independence of the Republic of Kosovo in 2008.
