The National Gallery of Arts (Galeria Kombëtare e Arteve) is a national art museum in Tirana, under the supervision of the Ministry of Culture. The beginnings of the institution can be traced back to the endeavors of a group of Albanian artists and the Arts Committee of 1946. “Pinakoteka” was the first institution of fine arts in the country. After much toil and extensive efforts, the Gallery of Arts officially opened to the public in Tirana on 11 January 1954. The Gallery worked in two main directions: exhibiting the permanent collection and opening temporary exhibitions of Albanian and foreign artists. Today the National Gallery conserves over 5000 artworks. Besides the permanent collection which is focused on Socialist Realism art, famous Albanian artists, international ones and important collections have been part of the different exhibitions in the National Gallery of Arts. An important policy of the NGA activities are also the educational programs, where many children and students participate. Visitors of the National Gallery have the opportunity to enjoy the activities and the exhibitions rich program, to know more about Albanian visual art.
