Ethnographic Museum

The Kavajë ethnographic museum was built in the XIX century as a symmetrical house for two families, brothers, in the shape of the letter U, and as such is strictly symmetrical. Its main elements are the open porch supported by wooden columns and in the center the two rooms of the fire house, which are directly connected to the porch. Unlike them, the couple’s and friends’ rooms rise above a half-floor where warehouses and warehouses were located. The rooms are equipped with wooden wardrobes inserted into the wall and wooden platforms. The house built with adobe walls has wide shelters to protect the walls from the rain.
