  • Nice Museum. The archtecture is pretty impressive, everything is new and clean but the exhibitions are a little boring and not very informative.
  • 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 this museum. Keep in mind that museum is open for visitors on particular days.
  • Impressive from a distance, but bad proportions, cheap building techniques close up.
  • Interestingly, learned the history of the Tajik people, flora and fauna well shows stuffed
