National Gallery of Arts

The inception of the National Gallery of Arts can be attributed to the efforts of a group of Albanian artists and the Arts Committee of 1946. Having relocated multiple times, the current venue officially opened its doors on 29 November 1974. This architectural structure, constructed during the Communist era, shares a similar style with the National Historical Museum and the Palace of Culture. Presently, the gallery boasts a collection of over 4,000 artworks and archives with records of more than 600 artists. Serving as the sole national institution, the Gallery exhibits, conserves, studies, restores, publishes, documents, and archives artworks across the country. In 2024, the EU4Culture programme equipped the National Gallery of Arts with equipment enabling the conservation of its collections.
