  • From visiting of this museum we are mesmerised. Let it not bother you with their neblestjashhim views, as opposed to the new building of the National Museum, next to the Presidential Palace. This is a real and very rare Museum. Exhibits from the youngest (!) age 15 century a.d. modestly camped inside the simple storefronts. As exhibits which 5000 years. All original, no copies. Museum staff member totally free us all told and showed. Entry for foreigners-50 Samani. While visiting the largest 1.5 hours if you bypass all slowly and reading the description on the walls.

  • Nice space feels half empty. Good exhibitions. Fair display. For tourists floors 2 and 3 recommended about history since middle ages and art expo.
  • The best museum in tajikistan. Just make a repair of the museum because the entire building is badly broken.
  • It is an existing museum! A lot of history could be seen there. I would definitely suggest to go there.
  • Cleverly maintained, huge from outside, specious from inside. Once entered, you start off from the department of ancient exhibits and move to contemporary Tajikistan as you proceed. Everyone is encouraged to visit the museum. Keep in mind that museum is open for visitors on particular days.
  • Nice Museum. The archtecture is pretty impressive, everything is new and clean but the exhibitions are a little boring and not very informative.
