Inside a traditional Albanian house, you'll find the Shkoder Historical Museum, where each room of the house showcases a different aspect of Albanian life. The main reception room is the highlight, with a large relief carved above the fireplace, couches lining the walls, and glass cases protecting traditional costumes.
