Albanian National Gallery of Arts

Galeria Kombëtare e Arteve (Albanian National Gallery of Arts) preserves the artistic, national cultural heritage of the Republic of Albania. The institution traces its history back to 1946, when a group of Albanian artists founded the Arts’ Committee of Albania. The first institution of fine arts ever known in the country was Pinakoteka. Soon after this, the Gallery of Arts opened to the public on 11 January 1954.

The new-formed arts space grew quickly and had to change locations several times to accommodate the increasing number of artworks displayed in its exhibition halls. The latest location of the gallery is at the Boulevard “Martyrs of the Nation” (Bulevardi Dëshmorët e Kombit).

The gallery has a permanent exhibition, but may also host temporary exhibitions of Albanian and foreign artists.
