  • Beautiful place. Has extra fees for filming. Has many portraits about the Timur times, and artifacts from the past. Felt longer than the historical museum of uzbek, since the size is whole bigger.
  • An architectural beauty. Very beautiful inside. Excellent place to know about Amir Timur and history of Uzbekistan.
  • A beautiful Museum. Exterior decoration is impressive. A lot of the exhibits. In the Centre of the Hall there is a chic chandelier. If you are a lover of history, then you definitely need to go there
