The Mother Teresa Memorial House (Macedonian: Спомен-куќа на Мајка Тереза, Albanian: Shtëpia përkujtimore e Nënë Terezës) is dedicated to the Catholic saint and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Mother Teresa. It is located in her hometown Skopje, in North Macedonia, where she lived from 1910 to 1928. The memorial house was built on the popular Macedonia Street in the Centar municipality, on the very location of the once Sacred Heart of Jesus Roman Catholic Church, where Mother Teresa was baptized. It lies just east of the Ristiḱ Palace and the Macedonia Square. In the first three weeks, the memorial house was visited by 12,000 people.
The memorial house worth two million euro was opened on 30 January 2009 by Macedonian Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski and is one of Skopje's newest landmarks. The opening was attended by foreign delegations, members of the Roman Catholic Church in North Macedonia and Macedonian Orthodox Church. One week prior to the opening, the Macedonian Foreign Minister Antonio Milošoski placed a commemorative plate at Mother Teresa's grave in Calcutta, India, with the engravement "Token of Gratitude from the Republic of Macedonia and the Fellow-Citizens of Her Native Town Skopje".

The architecture of the building is really strange, but worth to be seen. It is a pity that there was a constructure site all around almost covering this place. During a walk around it is impossible to miss it, especially if you are going to the old railway station.

Cool modern structure to walk by own the main drag... you can't miss it. Didn't bother going inside because its not the original nor was it my jam...but again, cool exterior.

Nice Memorial House for Skopje native St Teresa of Calcutta. Artifacts from her time in Skopje and later in life. Very well done.

This is an interesting place for a quick visit to see information and pictures about Mother Teresa. She was born in this city. There is not much see but it is free so go in have a quick look around.

One of the most important place to visit while you are in Skopje - the house of Mother Teresa. Very emotional place. No need to make reservation. Its in the center of the city.

A fake building dedicated to a fake saint. Its okay to visit, but find out more who she really was.

Well-kept place, free entrance. There's a chapel on the top floor. Several pictures and texts about Mother Teresa and her life.

I wish that a memorial to mother Theresa was more in keeping with her way of life. The photos and memorabilia give an insight into her life but the structure itself was a disappointment

There a lot of pictures, telling more to the people about her live, spending time to spread and share love, and promote peace, as she did! Nice exposition/memorial

A great experience. For a small memorial / museum, the display is memorable and life changing. Every visitor must stop by here
