Museum of the city of Skopje

Museum of the City of Skopje

Museum of the City of Skopje was founded in 1948.In 1970 it was housed into an adapted part of the old Railway Station,object that has been protected  as a cultural monument.Since then it functions as a complex museum that embodies the fields of archeology, history, ethnology, art history and the contemporary art in the region of the city of Skopje.

South of the centre, the only interesting thing about the City Museum is its partly-ruined exterior. The clock is frozen at 5.17 on the morning of the tragic Skopje earthquake of 27 July 1963, which killed 1066 people and almost demolished the city. The museum is home to permanent еxhibitions representing the history of Skopje, from the first recorded settlements around 3000 BC to present. Museum of the city of Skopje has four departments: archaeology, ethnology, history and art history.
