This was a pleasant boat ride excursion to reach the Bay of the Bones Museum. They have an interesting display that explains their (relatively recent) discovery of the ancient site in the museum. Then they have an open-air group of homes reconstructed like the original...More

The view of Lake Ohrid from the museum is beautiful. Other than this it is an average museum certainly not a must see.

Despite my 5 /5 rating we do have some mixed feelings about the Bay of Bones. This "things to do" is a mixture of a reconstructed Bronze to Iron age settlement built on, and over the lakeside at Ohrid. The reproduction is an impressive bit...More

This museum is a fantastic recreation of a Neolithic lake village. The huts are amazing and wonderful to be able to see the lake just below your feet. However, the signage telling you about it is lacking so it raised a great many questions which...More

We missed it on the way to Ostrovo but we were grateful to catch it on the return to Ohrid. The museum is small and won't take up too much time and is worth the stop. From the car park, you might think it will...More

Replica of old fishermen's village on the lake just on the road from Ohrid to Sveti Naum, one of the MUST on Ohrid lake.

The museum is great and will go again. The SCUBA shop there is top notch. It also provides a great view of the lake and surrounding towns from the top of the fort/campground.

On my way back from Sveti Naum, I took a taxi back to town because I have to wait 2 hours. The private taxi charged me 500 lek including a side trip to a view point and Bay of the bones museum. It was a...More

There are many local buses that drive from the centre of Ohrid all along to St. Naum near the border with Albania. They stop to whatever place you need to stop. The Bay of the Bones is just next to the camp Gradishte. You... More
