Across the facility's 10 exhibition rooms, you'll learn about the Bagan Palace city, Bagan period literature, Bagan-period architecture, Bagan-period social life, and much more.

  • Many leave this museum to visit only the temples. Nothing more wrong, a visit to this museum is an integral and complementary to the visit of the times. Don't miss this little gem.

  • bagan is a large archaeological site. one of the most beautiful views in Burma. I recommend a visit at dawn, the scenery is incredible. fairytale atmosphere.
  • The museum outward appearance are great but the archeology items inside are less. Moreover, the explanation are not enough, I did not recommend to visit unless you have a lot of time and money.
  • Better than I expected. Entry is 5,000 MMK per person, but you will see a lot of interesting things.
  • ျမိတ္
  • Socializing.
