Don’t bother, too expensive for $10. Not worth the value
Very good place to visit and learn history of turkmen culture
LOL 10$ for that !? What a joke. You are constantly watched by the employees of the museum, as if you were a thief 😂 Some pieces are totally fake and some others are just ridiculous 🤪 This museum is just boring and doesn’t deserve a visit.
