  • The Mansion, which housed the museum, once belonged to a wealthy merchant Jew Abraham Kalantrovou. And in my opinion, the most interesting here-restored interiors of the main hall. One emblem of the Russian Empire with the star of David is worth it. In the same building there is a small exhibition devoted to Samarkand Jews. After visiting the Museum of Culture and Afrosiaba the main exposition seemed rather boring, too much repetitive information. At First there are several halls devoted to the history of the city, then an exposition devoted to life and culture, on the second floor-halls with an exposition devoted to nature. I've never met Such an amazing necrophilaria! The Miserable stuffed animals were so much in the time that it was impossible not to laugh at this exhibition of freaks. The Famous stubborn Fox has found worthy cokurents. If you have the opportunity-pay for a visit at least 30 minutes to admire the unusual interiors.
