Ethnographic Museum in Durres

The Ethnographic Museum of Durrës is located in the residential dwelling where the prominent Albanian actor of the early XX century, Alexander Moisiu spent his childhood. Constructed in the XIX century, this building stands as the sole remaining example of a historical two-story dwelling with an open porch in Durrës. While operational, the museum showcased traditional household items, elaborately embroidered fabrics with golden thread, and copper artifacts, illustrating enduring Albanian traditions. A dedicated section of the museum honored Aleksandër Moisiu. Unfortunately, the structure endured significant structural damage during the 2019 earthquake. The building is planned to be restored under the EU4Culture programme, and its future function will be determined by the Ministry of Economy, Culture and Innovation and the Municipality of Durrës.
