The Bratko Asian Art Museum was opened in 2003, fulfilling the dreams of local Dhimiter Mborjes (1903-1990), artist, photographer and collection of Asian art and antiquities.Though Borja was born in Korça, he traveled extensively throughout his life, spending most of his years in the U.S. This museum has 432 objects on display, including a piano, Chinese altar, Japanese kimono, an embroidered Chinese belt, an Indonesian sword, European medals, Japanese paintings, and different photographs that Borja took while on a post-war mission with the UN.These photos in particular are unique, as they display the social and cultural history of the east immediately after WWII, as well as the important role that the American forces and General MacArthur played in the economic and institutional rebuilding of Japan.Museum Archivist Zobel has said regarding Borja : “” He was a genius.He came to this place with nothing, and with only his hard work he became famous.This alone is enough to show the strength of his character.”
