    Right on Skanderbeg Square. The most fascinating displays were the 2nd floor exhibits on the 40 years of communism following World War II. Albania under Enver Hoxha was what North Korea is today - an extraordinarily closed society under a hardline communist regime, a country foreigners knew next to nothing about. Hoxha ruled with an iron fist, a hardline Stalinist who thought the Soviet Union under Kruschev, Brezhnev and that lot was too SOFT, a Stalinist in the purest sense of the term. Not much English in the museum (and no photos, they're dead serious about that!) but you can still have a general idea of what life was in Albania during that period. Particularly harrowing are the exhibits and artifacts on the many labor camps all over the country, especially the one near Lake Scutari. 20 to 25 years of hard labor for speaking out of turn about the regime or for just striking an unauthorized conversation with a foreigner. Chilling stuff.
