Museum of the Republic of North Macedonia (Macedonian: Музеј на Република Северна Македонија, romanized: Muzej na Republika Severna Makedonija) is a national institution in North Macedonia and one of the oldest museums in the country. It is located in the Old Bazaar in Skopje, near the Skopje Fortress. The Museum of the Republic of North Macedonia was created by joining three museum in one. The three museum that were unified were the archaeological, historical and ethnological museum, of which the archaeological museum was the oldest one; it was opened in 1924 and that date is considered as an establishing date of the national museum. During the existence of the Socialist Republic of Macedonia, the museum was known as People's Museum of Macedonia.

Located near Fortress in older socialist building which needs very much a reconstruction and I believe they know about it. There is exhibition of Macedonia during WWII, refugee crises of children and reunion after. Other building is dedicated to ethnology. Overall no people when we visited, which is nice. To put more story to the museum would be a plus and new TVs should be always switched on to make the athmosphere better. Some exhibition was removed due to leaking roof. If you have spare time, you can visit it for 100mkd. Card payments are not allowed.
I do not recommend it to be put on the tourist's shortlist. Either due to the lack of money or the lack of good manager (I think the latter reason) it is drifting to nowhere. The whole exhibition is ill-organised, half of items is described in Macedonian only, many photos may surely be printed in better scale and quality, Macedonian history is described so poorly that foreigners have little chance to understand it after visiting the exhibition. I hope you do sth with that and I wish you the best because it is a shame for a country so proud of its history to present it in such un unprofessional way.
Çok küçük ve teşhir için yeterli eser malesef yok.
The museum is situated in an interesting building, which seems to be left a bit abandoned. The exhibition is split into 2 parts... both of which are in different halls within the same complex. The first part is a nice displayed related to the history of Macedonia; but too much reading looses interest.... The second half of the exhibition is a large collection of cultural related artefacts. Unfortunately this is displayed in a very old fashioned style with small captions. The place has potential but needs investment. Overall it was interesting to understand Macedonian culture & history. I would recommend to visit this place while wondering around the old bazaar.
I agree with the previous reviews, this museum has been left behind in the rush to rebuild the city. It seems to be divided into two buildings, in the larger one was lots of exhibits relating to national costumes and farming. Most exhibits were covered in dust and there were no lights on and limited information in either English or Macedonian. The second building was much better at least it was lit and it was fairly well laid out. This area explored more recent history. I was the only visitor in both of the museums. From the outside it is hard to credit that this building is only about 40 years old, it is so ugly and to be honest it is falling apart.
Very interesting information can be found here about the history of Macedonia and how their lives were affected by the wars that took place around them. Sadly the musuem is not that maintained and it would be better if they spent some time and money to properly restore it, All in all, worth the visit if history interests you.
